I don’t think pot works on me anymore. Seriously, I buy the highest THC the dispensary has and...nothing. I’ve been on a break since the end of July. Maybe I’ll go back to it at some point. Fuck 2020.
Enjoy every sandwich.

Never been a fan. They don’t get me high. I think I developed a stupid high tolerance from all the years of use. I’m hoping that this long break will undo that. It wasn’t that hard to stop and I don’t miss it that much It just felt like a waste of money to buy these carts and get nothing out of them.

I’m drinking more, which I don’t like as much and it worries my wife.
Enjoy every sandwich.

West Wendover, NV taking advantage of having the Salt Lake City weed market all to itself.

Kinda like how fireworks stores in New Hampshire do gangbusters on customers from Massachusetts.

(Same with packie stores on Sundays.)

It's almost like people want to be free to do what they want.

Having the dispensary open up in Wendover made things way convenient. It’s an hour and a half versus at least four-five hours to Colorado.

I'm very optimistic legalizing recreational use will pass the ballot initiative. I'm also getting the sense my town is going to pass an ordinance prohibiting sale in town. I think that would be a huge mistake, as the revenue could be a huge boon (and it'd be convenient for me). From what I've seen of dispensaries, they are really nice stores. Tons of letter to the editor and Facebook forum debates about banning sale in town, yet all the pro-banning people say they support legalizing, they just don't want druggies flooding our town or OMG, the children will suddenly have access! Lots of very well written arguments for allowing a dispensary in town. Apparently it was a hot topic at the Town Council debate. The Ds said they are in favor of a dispensary in town, while the Rs said they would put it up for a town referendum and go with popular vote. People are freaking that the Ds will open dispensaries regardless of the people's will, which is stupid for several reasons, but whatevs. I figure if statewide ballot initiative passes, its still going to be a year before its available.

Anyone pro or con dispensaries should really visit one before making a judgment. The absolute worst of them are still better than your average gas station/convenience store as far as exterior design and clientele. It's like turning down a bakery from operating in your town. It's idiotic. Most of the customers at the dispensary when I'm usually there (granted, usually around noon) are senior citizens (not even joking).

Yes, it’s ridiculous that I have to drive 20 miles south to San Jose or 20 miles north to San Francisco to get to a dispensary. But the nimby’s in the burbs are afraid of them.

My wife grew up in a town outside of Steamboat, it's slowly dying with the coal mining. Someone wanted to take some old warehouse or something and just have a growing operation to feed the various dispensaries. They voted against it. All the fuckers that'll hammer down a 30 rack of Curs Light then drive into town to get a bottle of Fireball for late-night...but ya weed is evil and endangers the kids.

Whoever was responsible for setting up the CO system needs to go around and help other states. Both MA and VT f'd up getting the revenue stream up and as robust as it should be by messing around or legalizing and then not having a good plan in place...like VT you can have..but can't fucking buy anywhere.

Sonics star Shawn Kemp opens cannabis store in Seattle
It’s been more than 20 years since Shawn Kemp played for the Seattle SuperSonics. But he still had hordes of fans lined up for blocks to see him and be among the first inside his new business.

Shawn Kemp’s Cannabis is the newest venture from “The Reign Man” and is backed by cannabis industry veteran partners Matt Schoenlein and Ramsey Hamide of Main Street Marijuana.

“This is a lot of responsibility, I didn’t just jump in to this” Kemp said. “I needed the right plan and the right partners for this. I have that and this is just the first of five locations that will be opening up pretty soon.”
The joke around here is that his new nickname should be 'Strain Man'.

And the mural on the side of building is great.

I don't. Florida just got cleared for edibles, and while I've had some in Vegas, and from friends bringing them back from California, I have never had gel caps. My wife swears by the nighttime, (Indica dominant), tincture, and she likes the newest gummies that my local place now offers. I prefer their hard candy.
I took a two hour nap and cried during parks and Rec. it was awesome and terrifying.

Last week I donated blood (double red cell). A nurse was asking me some boilerplate questions prior to hooking me up.

Her: ... Do you smoke?
Me: Not tobacco, but pot once in a while.
Her: (digressing from script) Nothing wrong with that. What method do you use?
Me: I use a vape pen.
Her: A bong is the best way.
Me: Ha ha. Is that your professional opinion?
Her: Ha ha. It’s my personal opinion! (gets back to boilerplate questions)...

Speaking of vapes I got The Kind Pen on recommendations here. I recently bought new cartridges and one of the two didn't work. The dispensary was kind enough to replace, but the new batch also has one that doesn't seem to work. They're the same brand. I did some googling, but the only "solution" didn't work, it was for a different type of heat exchanger (the piece that makes contact to the battery) the one that doesn't work has a solid heat exchanger.

Mass and VT had troubles as well. I don't know why Colorado's legislation isn't used. It's a great system has raised tons of money for schools and as far as I know, hasn't led to any problems.

I think the problem arises when they say they smell it but that’s just for their paperwork to get started on the harassin’

Nah you smell it everywhere here on the street. The Mexican legislature is legalizing it next week. Could be actual weed shops open by end of the year. It’s embarrassing to the US that even a conservative country like Mexico is so far ahead of the Americans at this point.

Is your mom cool with it being at her house?

Funny thing. For most of my life, my parents were raging on the front lines of the war on drugs - went ballistic when my little brother got busted with pot when he was in high school. But now, my mother has been converted to the health benefit of cannabis. So now when I visit, my mother asks if I brought my vape pen. (Father is still unreconstructed on the issue.)

I mean, probably not, but she knows it's a losing battle. I sat them down a couple years ago to explain to them how much this really helps me and how once my wife accepted it, it's really made a positive difference in my life. Now her main concern is that I don't vape.

I really could wait until this weekend since she is coming here (I have to buy more anyway), but I'm not going to ask her to travel with it nor do I want one of her friends finding it. So, a lot of jams for 6 hours later today! Got a nice Widespread show queued up for impromptu 1/2 day.

I'm hoping like hell all of the regulatory stuff in Mexico is through by this summer and stores are allowed to open this fall (the free market in Mexico is no joke, people here are so capitalist it makes the US look like North Korea). But those investing need to be convinced the government is really going to stay out of the way. Once that happens, the floodgates will open. Wouldn't be surprised to see $50 (high-ish quality) ounces here eventually (depending on where the government lands on taxes).
