“Casual Stoner” Buys Blowtorch

By David Colton

DAVENPORT, IOWA ­– It happened on an average Friday afternoon.

Local part-time haberdasher and father of a 17-year-old dog Jonathan Trunks was just making his standard rounds at the half-sized Target where goes when he leaves his house/office the one time per week he has to buy groceries — when something peculiar caught his eye.

Jonathan has been a self-proclaimed casual marijuana user for almost ten years now.

“I smoke at night, and sometimes in the morning if I feel like it, but that’s pretty much only on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays,” said Jonathan Trunks, who paid $45 to create a custom marijuana leaf Overwatch skin.

Jonathan said something awoke from deep inside of him at the half-sized target Friday when he wheeled his cart past the kerosene & gas aisle.

Target Associate Team Member Sue Whittle said she saw a spark in Jonathan’s eyes when he saw the blowtorch section — a spark that she knew would eventually grow into a fire hot enough to heat a nail on a dab rig.

“I’m probably only going to buy like, a small rig so that I can keep myself in check,” said Jonathan, whose parents do his laundry, “I hear reclaim dabs are insanely dope.”
