I recently took a trip out west to visit the coast.
While I’ve certainly seen much of the country, this was poised to be my first view of the entire ocean & I wanted to make the most of it.
My boyfriend wasn’t nearly as happy as I because although he has made trips such as this yearly since he was a toddler. His parents worked in the military & were always traveling & moving all over the country through his entire childhood. That means he never got to settle in a single arena for longer than various years at a time. It’s obviously hard to make friends & maintain the same people when you’re moving that much as a kid. So for him, coming out to the ocean such as this is nothing special whatsoever. On the one hand, I realize the people I was with and I are visiting a state park to go hiking & he’s never been to it before, even though he’s been through this section of earth in the past. We’re also happy to be visiting this state’s legal medical cannabis dispensaries to be honest. All of us both have medical cannabis cards in our state so the state we’re visiting lets us purchase as “reciprocal medical cannabis patients.” It’s honestly an unbelievable method here & allows anyone from out of state to purchase here as long as they officially possess a medical cannabis card in their own state. Otherwise, you would need a whole new medical cannabis card for this state. Eventually I know we’re going to see recreational cannabis legal across the board, but it could take many years before that’s the case. I believe that the Supreme Court is the last body that will legalize cannabis for adult recreation.
