I used to live in Florida and I actually hated it.
People complain about the freezing winters in Michigan, however the obscenely warm summers in Florida are just as awful or worse if you don’t have access to air conditioning system at all hours of the day.
I had to suffer through a summer time year with actually no air conditioning system and I thought I was going to lose our mind. There is a risk of heat stroke in those situations when there are heat advisories and you can’t get out of the heat in your own house. I had a friend whose Grandmother died of heat stroke one year because her air conditioning system quit working during a heat advisory and she couldn’t get someone out to her home in time to give her assistance. It still breaks our heart to do this day when I remember the incident and how much it shocked our friend at the time. I believe she feels care about she should have done something about it, however no one even knew she was suffering as awful as she was until the last day she was alive. Someone in their family tried to drive out to her, however didn’t arrive in time. Florida is also frustrating because of its imposed vertical integration on its cannabis market. Michigan supports small suppliers with a horizontally integrated cannabis market—there are separate licenses for growers, processors, testers, and retailers, and you’re only required to buy a $4,200 license to get started. In Florida cannabis has to be from seed to sale, meaning you have to invest tens of millions of dollars just to get started in the first locale. Florida weed is corporate weed, and it’s sad to see it when I leave Ann Arbor to visit our family back in the south.
