The weed scene around here is crazy.
Long before pot was declared legal, the foothills near our town were infamous for pot farmers.
Allegedly, after the US military started the draft for the Vietnam War, various hippies took their pot seeds and ran up into the hills to hide. For decades they grew exotic strains, and when the law finally caught up to their reality, they turned their illicit pot farms into profitable companies, then since then, our town is somewhat famous for the number of cannabis dispensaries they have. This year for the first time the cannabis dispensaries got together as a group to sponsor a large music festival. There would be various stages, a total of eighteen bands, spread out across a weekend, all under the banner of celebrating the legalization of recreational marijuana, and medical cannabis has been legal for a couple of years now, but finally all of us decided to go the rest of the way and made it accessible to people without a prescription. There are so various enjoyable bands that are staunch supporters of cannabis use, and a few of them will be at this festival. I am most gleeful about seeing Cypress Hill, who are truly the largest marijuana supporters I suppose of, next to Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson. In the future I would enjoy to see this cannabis music festival get even greater, so that they could get someone like Willie to perform. Can you imagine how cool it would be to smoke cannabis with Willie Nelson? Suffice to say, I am super stoked about this music festival!
