One of the biggest reasons why my friends and I decided to take a vacation to California was due to the legal cannabis laws.
California has legal cannabis for both recreational and medical purposes. The other two states on the west coast also have legal recreational and medical marijuana. I wish we lived in a legal state, but medical marijuana is just now legal in 2021. My friends and I decided to go to California for a week. After we narrowed down our options to San Diego, San Francisco, or Bakersfield, we ultimately chose San Francisco because of its rich gay and lesbian history. My friends and I identify as LGBTQ individuals. We have no nightlife or history in our little town. In fact, we live in a region that is mostly republucain with bible belt values. San Francisco, California seemed like the perfect place for us to visit. We found a reasonable hotel room close to the bridge. Since the three of us were splitting the price, it wasn’t more than $75 each. We really enjoyed the nightlife at Fisherman’s Wharf. We went to a different bar every single night. We visited the Hard Rock Cafe on Pier 39. We visited The Buena Vista on Hyde Street. We also visited Brick and Beam on North Point Street. We had an amazing adventure that week, and we got to enjoy recreational cannabis the whole time. We paid high prices for the pre rolls, but we had several different cannabis hops in the region and most of them had a first time patient special.
