For millenia, sales professionals have used alcohol to loosen up customers, build rapport and move a sale forward. So, with marijuana going legal, how long do you think it will be before sales pros and prospects start lighting up a doobie before (or after) doing some serious business?
And I'm not entirely sure that's a good idea.
I must admit that my specific experiences with marijuana fall into the general category of "if you can remember the 60s you weren't really there."
However, I do recall that pot smokers were dull conversationalists. The typical example either talked about 1) how stoned he was; 2) how stoned he was last time he got stoned; or 3) his ear.
That last item might require a bit of explanation. For some reason, every time somebody took a hit of pot, they'd hand the joint to the next person and say "Ear." I never did figure out why.
Anyway, I'm having trouble imagining what kind of business deals will emerge from these smokey powwows. I do know one thing, though. The stock prices for potato chip firms will rise through the roof!!
Anyway, here's an (anonymous) poll so you can express your opinion freely:
