Monticello dispensary manager uses love of cannabis to help patients



Dustin Watson, 40, has a passion for helping others as well as an unrelenting curiosity about cannabis. He’s grateful the Arkansas cannabis industry has given him an opportunity to combine the two, first as a budtender and assistant general manager in Texarkana and now as the general manager of Good Day Monticello

Watson was a finalist for the Best Budtender award in the Arkansas Times’ annual Best of Arkansas readers survey. Watson says it’s important for budtenders to listen more than they talk but, most of all, he says, it’s important to love what you do. “If you don’t love it, you’re not going to be able to provide excellent care for the patients.”
