Because cannabis is still illegal in my home state, I like to engage in what is called “weed tourism.” I will base my vacations and my travel plans on places that have legal weed.
I don’t like to take airlines if I don’t have to, because it’s still illegal to carry weed onto the plane.
Usually I will drive, so that I can enjoy a vacation and load up on marijuana to take back home with me. Almost every state within driving distance has legalized medical cannabis use, but only a couple states have also decriminalized recreational use. The road of full legalization of cannabis has been a long one, and we still have a long way left to go. Medical cannabis is legal but only under certain circumstances. You need to have a prescription from a doctor, you need to pay a fee to the state for a permit, and you need to fill out a lot of paperwork along the way. Medical cannabis should not require so many steps, and it especially shouldn’t require us to pay off the government. The only reason medical cannabis is being legalized is as a revenue stream for government offices that need more money. When I take a vacation I visit a small, independently owned medical cannabis spot, one that grows and sells its own weed. These places offer tours of the facilities and the farms, so I can see medical cannabis in every stage of production. My ultimate goal in life is to one day get a job on a medical cannabis farm.
