UPDATE: You can now purchase cannabis at weed stores in Seattle.
Let’s just say you are a medical marijuana patient living off of Broadway and the Pike/Pine corridor on Capitol Hill, and you just ran out of your supply of cannabis. What do you do now? Easy. Firstly, you would get your medical marijuana card ready. Then, you would, in a very calm and relaxed manner, slip on your shoes and head a couple blocks to one of more than 200 medical marijuana dispensaries in the city similar to this medical marijuana lansing mi. Even though this location is down the street from a park and other places where kids congregate, it’s totally fine for this dispensary to exist, and okay for you to be there. And before you know it, you will be walking back to your cozy abode, with a bag of Washington State’s best.
Once you are back in the comforts of your home, you could make a pot of coffee and sit down on your sofa and enjoy the hemp flower pre-rolls you just purchased. You could call up a friend to join you on the sofa while you make fun of everything on daytime television. Then, after what would seem like an eternity of relaxing fun, but really just a moment; you check your watch and realize that you have plans to meet up with a couple of close friends, who are also medical marijuana patients.
What’s on the agenda tonight? Your plans are to drive North to Lake City and spend the evening at The Amsterdam Exchange. They will have a themed event known as the Cult Classic Movie Night. This particular night, they will be be playing the double feature of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Caddyshack. Yes, you will be comfortably sitting and smoking while watching two of your favorite classics and laughing your ass off. In addition, there will be a full food buffet, plenty of medibles, and strains of your favorite marijuana, such as purple cheese, to go around.
But while you dream about your upcoming evening, you pause to think about one of your less fortunate friends who isn’t a medical marijuana patient and therefore, doesn’t have the access the industry like yourself. What is he/she doing tonight? Your thoughts start to wonder more…
Is my friend at Cannabis City in Seattle, waiting in line with a sleeping bag until the only recreational marijuana shop in Seattle reopens on the 25th of this month? Or is my friend calling up the famous Seattle marijuana delivery service, Winterlife Cooperative, only to be told they no longer sell to anyone with a medical marijuana card? Or maybe your friend is standing on a street corner holding a cardboard sign asking for weed? Or just maybe, they are briefly going back to the black market to score some pot for the evening.
And when your friend does score some weed, then what? They can’t join you at the Amsterdam Exchange and enjoy a night of fun and 80’s cult classics. And it’s against the law for your friend to smoke cannabis at a local bar, park, or anywhere in public. The only choice they really have is to consume the herb at home. And what fun is that when all of your friend’s are hanging out in a ‘lounge atmosphere,’ smoking it up, while watching a couple cult classics from the 80’s?
