Hi. I'm Brian. I work in the cannabis industry but am considering learning to casino deal (cards) as a potential career change. This is still rather undecided as I enjoy the industry I am in but once Maryland went recreational my job went from being a cannabis steward helping people make the proper medical choices to being a cashier at a cannabis party store. It's rather unsatisfying now and I'm hoping dealing is more fun. Any thoughts from people in the casino industry is always appreciated. Any questions you may have about cannabis or cbd feel free to hit me up.

All the same, I'm here to learn and hopefully get some chips. Nice to meet everyone.
 
Welcome! Dealing can be a real grind, pun intended. Not sure what job rivals illegally selling drugs when it comes to fun or interest. Dealing CARDS was fun but it can be exhausting and in most cardrooms you lose the fun socializing/gambling part, you're just a part of the table for most players.
 
Are drug dealers welcome at PCF?

Welcome. I worked in the casino industry, in several departments for years. This includes being a table games dealer and supervisor. I’m very much an introvert and am mostly anti-social. Dealing cards was the most fun job I’ve ever had for sure. I’d encourage you to give it a try. However, it’s not likely a long term career with a family. Hours will vary but you’ll likely start overnight. Smoke gets in your eyes. It’s a bit of an unhealthy lifestyle. But again, give it a shot. If you aren’t satisfied in your current role, you’ll burn out soon enough.
 
I live in Illinois and at least in my state the cannibis industry is booming while the casino business is stagnant with some in disrepair and run down, ready to close. Anyway, I smoked pot for over 50 years and welcomed the legalization a couple years ago, however the strains grown now are so much stronger that they were having an adverse effect on my health. So I decided to quit, and went through ten days of hellish withdrawals which when I was a kid we didn’t have because it was not as potent as it is now. So now clean and sober after 50 years all I want to say is be careful, this shit will grab you like a gorilla. I loved the high, but hated everything else about the ‘new’ weed.

Damn I’m old…….

It’s like being a beer drinker for 50 yrs and then switching over to whiskey. You just can’t drink the whiskey like you drink beer, 12-16 ounces at a time. If you are going to self medicate, you have to control your dosage, you can’t just let the cashier at the dispensary be your doctor.
 
Welcome to PCF from a fellow Marylander. Tons of local members in the area as well as several casinos. I'm not sure any one here deals in Maryland? Most home games are self dealt, but there are some games where dealers are used. I play in a monthly league that has 2 dealers for both tournaments and cash games.
Have you had an opportunity to eye up any chips you may be interested in?
 
I worked for 11+ years dealing/flooring in a poker room.

pros: great money for not needing a degree/experience. fun environment surrounded by like minded gambling degens. casinos usually offer great benefits and free food.

cons: days/hours are shit. especially if you have a family or social life. very repetitive, mind numbing. after about a year you've basically seen it all. customer service could be a pro/con depending on your personality. I personally enjoyed it for the most part because its pretty much all I've done growing up. there is some saying that goes along the lines of, "if you want to kill any enjoyment of a hobby, turn it into a job." that kind of rings true for me, because sitting down at a small stakes NLH game in any casino now makes me twitch a little bit. kind of how you feel now about being a cashier in an industry you otherwise enjoy.

overall, I'd say go for it becuase there is very little barrier to entry. If you try it and it's not a good fit, there wasn't much time/energy/money wasted.

That's not just a no but a hell no. When I got online this morning to look for more information and I found you guys I went from thinking “i’ll look into custom chips” to ‘HOLY SHIT there's a lot to research and plan’.

It's going to take me spending a lot more time here before I am ready to answer that!

Well you've got the right approach then! It really is alot of joy collecting, and I would say a strong percentage dabble in casino chips but ultimately end up with a custom set as a major (or sole) part of their collection.
Some strictly enjoy casino chips and their history. There's some incredible customs on this forum, and most folks who own them would be more than happy to chit chat about the creation process. Seems common that most have invested a year + in their custom designs

You could leverage your marijuana business tableside to reap the profits. I am a red head, anyone who knows Gingers we sometimes have super powers where alcohol and other stimulants/medications just don't work on us. When I go to the dentist the Lidocaine does very little, I can drink 3x most people and still feel stable enough to operate machinery. Likewise pulling out a few big THC batons during play does very little to me unless I smoke the whole thing. For years I have cleaned up in the half hour to 45mins of my "joint generosity ".

By any chance are you a redhead to? If not maybe just don't Inhale......
