A coworker asked today if were we going to go to Seattle this year. I said, “Yeah, it’s coming up soon.” “I’m going to have to be careful when we get back to not to have an accident at work though.” He asked, “Why?” “Because they drug test after an accident,” I replied. “Now that they have legalized marijuana for personal use in Washington state…”
I told him that I was of course kidding about the recreational marijuana use, because with just my luck, I would slip on some grease on the floor when we got back and end up unemployed. I think I’ll be waiting until I’m retried until I take a toking tour of the great northwest. This led to a nice little conversation about the state of medical marijuana and legalization.
Which gave me an idea for something to do during my retirement, I could get me a little plot of land out there in Washington and plant a small crop of cannabis plants. Then I would set up a roadside stand similar to the peach stands that are popping up all over South Carolina now and call it Cannabis Cabana. I’d use a striped canvas tent or something open with a thatched roof, prop up a surfboard or two for looks and I’d be in business. The staff, me, would be outfitted in a Hawaiian shirt with flip-flops. Slack key guitar and ukelele music would be playing softly in the background.
