Praising or Blazing

At Jake's (yes, the Jake I rammed off his bicycle) request, I've made a little time to write another blog post.

So, I've recently been afforded the privilege to work with a company in the cannabis industry. As someone who has little [read: zero] experience with cannabis, it has given me an opportunity to learn about an entirely new culture and subject. Despite sounding like an ignorant newb (which I am), I've been learning a lot and am having a great time working with this company. There are dogs everywhere, donuts miraculously appear in the kitchen, and everyone is upbeat and charming...and no...I have not been working with a bunch of hippie pot-heads who choose patchouli over bathing.

All that being said, part of the work I have been doing for this company has involved looking up a myriad of cannabis dispensaries in the west, and I've discovered something rather peculiar...the names of dispensaries could easily pass for young-adult church groups.

I'm serious...Summit Group, 8th Wonder, Have A Heart...goodness, I feel like I'm sitting at a Young Life camp talking about the various devotional groups campers can attend.

So, today, I thought we could play a game: Praising or Blazing - I give you a name, you tell me if it's a dispensary or a church group.
