True story, from back in my youthful days on the road.
At the time, some twenty years ago, I had just dropped out of college and hit the road.
I didn’t know where I was going, I just had a backpack full of my personal belongings, a few hundred bucks, and a desire to walkabout for a while. My path led me through the gorgeous landscapes of the American Southwest, and one day I saw a said that pointed me in the direction of Albuquerque. At the time, I had no idea that Albuquerque was a real place, I thought it was just a silly word that Bugs Bunny made up. Do you remember those old cartoons, where Bugs would tunnel his way to Ireland or the Sahara desert and then say “I should have made a left turn at Albuquerque.” Here I was, gobsmacked, that a city existed with such a silly name! I took that sign as a portent, and walked the rest of the way to Albuquerque, and that proved to be the end of my journey. When I got to Albuquerque, I found a welcoming community, with a thriving cannabis scene. I had long been interested not just in smoking cannabis, but in studying it and learning how to cultivate it. I found a lot of like minded people in Albuquerque, who weren’t interested in growing weed to sell, just to create the finest strains of cannabis known to man! Twenty years later I am still here in Albuquerque, and my friends and I run our own cannabis dispensary.
