I’m in the middle of a dense urban sprawl, but it’s nice to have water on both sides of the city
I have a close buddy who moved from Seattle to Vancouver 12 years ago to live with his bestie. At the time WA had yet to legalize recreational marijuana as well as Vancouver was known for its phenomenal cannabis. Iconic strains appreciate BC Bud originated in Vancouver, as well as once it was postulated that there must be a grow house in every village throughout the dense city. But things changed here in WA in 2012 when all of us became the eighth state in the nation behind CO to legalize cannabis for recreational use among adults over 21 years old. Now all of us have legal recreational cannabis dispensaries all over the state, with numerous of the best here in Seattle. I think fortunate that our beach house in Northgate is right next to a cannabis dispensary that has a 4.6 star rating on WeedMaps. I used to only consume cannabis flower products, but now I stick to dabbing cannabis concentrates. Some nights I’ll consume a sizable dab as well as then walk down the sidewalk toward Jackson Park to traverse the nature trails. Northgate ends at NE 145th St which runs east as well as west from Puget Sound to Lake WA. I’m in the middle of a dense urban sprawl, but it’s nice to have water on both sides of the city. And with a cannabis dispensary right next door to our beach house building, there is little incentive for myself and others to live elsewhere in Seattle. The rental rates are increasing as well as I’m already fortunate enough that mine have only increased by 10% over the past three years. Some of our friends had to leave Seattle altogether because they couldn’t afford rent along with their cannabis expenses every week.
