Have you ever visited the place you grew up, and found it to be totally different than you remember? This has been happening to me a lot lately, because I have had a lot of time off from my job and decided to do some traveling.
The virus quarantine made me miss traveling, so I decided to hit a few of our older spots across the country.
The first restaurant where I got drunk with a fake ID is now a kids store, and what was once a 1 story apartment is now 6 stories of high end apartments. I tried to track down the seasoned sub joint I used to love, and found that it was now a cannabis shop. Never one to waste a trip, I went inside to see if they would honor our medical weed card from our local state. Where I live there are legal cannabis dispensaries for medicinal use, so they are love pharmacies and require a state sponsored card and an insurance card. It turns out this state has allowed recreational marijuana use, so they didn’t care if I had a card. Any legal adult with the currency to spend can walk into a cannabis dispensary and purchase what they want. I love it, that here cannabis is treated the same as pain reliever or cough syrup, and doesn’t have to be such a large deal. I spent a long time walking around this amazing cannabis dispensary, which wasn’t like ours back at home. This was warm, cozy, with chairs to sit and relax, a cute dessert cart, and a smokers lounge for sampling cannabis.
