I think I really was more surprised that our neighboring state ushered in legalized medical marijuana and recreational marijuana before we did.
This state has long campaigned to get access to legal cannabis products and it took forever to get on the ballot. It fails by the thinnest of margins yet again last election cycle. Our sister state gets both medical marijuana and recreational marijuana passed on the first try. That’s just stunning to me. But if we can’t get our cannabis products here then I’m sure grateful I don’t have to go far to get them. I still really can’t imagine what that’s going to be like to just open the door to a place where I can shop for marijuana for sale. That’s a concept that I’m still sort of pinching myself over. Just knowing what I’m buying and from what cannabis grower is a really great thing. Not to mention the fact that the THC content has been measured. The whole thing is just going to be such a great experience. To talk with knowledgeable people about sativa strains or a particular new hybrid strain that is popular will be amazing. For sure, my wife and I will make a weekend out it. There’s a really nice, smaller sized city about a 3 hour drive from here in our neighboring state. It’s not too bad a drive and we love this place anyway. There are great natural things to see and take advantage of with a place of that size. But it’s not too big to have lost it’s charm either. So we get a nice hotel that’s within an Uber from like 7 nice local cannabis spots. It’s just the best weekend.
