I studied film at a small liberal arts college in Boston, and subsequently saw my best friends divided between Boston and Los Angeles. They’re all up to two things: putting their respective liberal arts degrees to good use, and taking advantage of legal weed.
I have friends attending combination cannabis/yoga classes, having weed delivered from services similar to Postmates, and getting student discounts at their local dispensaries. It’s a weird culture I have little familiarity with, considering I’m based out of New York where marijuana is still illegal. Recreational marijuana use is now legal in 8 states, and it’s opened a wide door for new businesses and new ideas. The market was predicted to have earned $10 billion in 2017, and there’s no doubt that the accommodating taxation can do wonders for the states weed is legal in.
Still, I have a bad taste in my mouth, and it’s not because I have a problem with legal marijuana.
