To honor the hardworking Las Vegas ReLeaf staff, we will be highlighting a different staff member every month. Learn more about their job duties, their experience in the medical marijuana industry and their passions both in and outside of medical marijuana.
For the month of June, Las Vegas ReLeaf is highlighting Jake Morgan. This hard working individual is a dispensary and delivery agent, as well as a talented DJ who is performing at HempFest this Saturday!
Jake Morgan is from California and grew up around the medical marijuana industry. As a child, Jake discovered the industry because his uncle had a medical marijuana card. His uncle was upfront about his use of marijuana for health reasons and how it helped him. But he never pushed Jake into it.
Then, when Jake was in high school, he got injured playing basketball. He had severe lower back pain due to his injury and was prescribed painkillers. But, as Jake states, “It just didn’t work with my chemistry.” He described how the painkillers made him feel sick, which led him to look for alternative methods for pain relief. Jake also described how he dealt with insomnia when he got to college. All of this led him to discover the medical benefit of marijuana for his symptoms. He got his medical card at 18 and visited his first medical marijuana dispensary. He finally found the best “releaf” he’s ever had.
At Las Vegas ReLeaf, Jake plays an important part of running the delivery services we offer. From the patient call, to the patient profile, to the delivery service, to doorstep, Jake is involved in every aspect of ensuring patients get medical marijuana delivery in a timely manner.
When Jake first got involved with Las Vegas ReLeaf, he didn’t know of any other dispensaries open in Las Vegas (which makes sense because we were the first dispensary to open in the city of Las Vegas). But once Jake found Las Vegas ReLeaf, he knew it was the right fit for him. His persistence paid off when he was hired at the beginning of the year, and he couldn’t be happier. He describes his time working here as “the first job where I’m excited to get up and go to work in the morning.” His favorite part about working at this medical marijuana dispensary is that he gets to meet new patients and hear their stories every day. The people he works with are nice and the patients are awesome. As Jake says, “Good vibes, good people.”
Something you may not know about Jake Morgan is his background in music. He comes from a musical family and wants to help carry the musical torch to the next generation. He has been a music producer and DJ for the last 8 years, and continues to be active in the music scene here in Las Vegas. He will be DJing at HempFest this Saturday. Catch him on the main stage throughout the day, keeping the music going and the energy alive between musical sets.
HempFest is this Saturday at Craig Ranch Park, from 11 a.m. to midnight. Stop by to see Jake and other awesome musical talent.
