When I say that this town had to fight for a cannabis dispensary, I am not exaggerating. Like multiple small towns, there are a lot of young people with different ideas from the stodgy old folks who run the place. The cops, lawyers, in addition to politicians are always old people, who have old views on some unquestionably important topics. After the statewide referendum passed, there were new laws on the books allowing for the growing in addition to possession of small amounts of medical cannabis. It wasn’t an open invitation to start a marijuana farm, but the rules had been relaxed enough that it was okay to grow a few plants at home. The town elders around here fought against that, in addition to said they would still prosecute anyone found to be growing marijuana locally. There was a town hall meeting soon after, certain ly on the subject of legal cannabis, in addition to that is where the fight broke out. A group of religious people in red hats were making a commotion, waving anti-cannabis placards, in addition to a single of them bumped into a biker. I don’t even know why this biker was at the meeting, or if she was against cannabis or for it. But when they bumped into him she stood up in addition to started throwing hands, at which point all the other pro-cannabis people jumped into the fray. I didn’t get involved in the fight, because as much as I love smoking cannabis I don’t want to get punched in the face for it! I did get some nice footage on our cellphone, though, which I will upload to the blog soon.
