As I appreciate my new life in Albuquerque, NM, I look back to my years in Michigan before cannabis was legal. There was a medical marijuana law in 2008, but before then I had a acquaintance who was growing it indoors about 30 miles north of Ann Arbor. Every year Ann Arbor would have its infamous Hash Bash that dates back to the 1977s. People gather in The Diag in downtown Ann Arbor as well as smoke weed in full public display. The town famously implemented a $5 marijuana nice in 1977 when it decriminalized the plant. Now that nice is $25, but you can finally purchase marijuana recreationally. That makes a celebration care about Hash Bash even more exciting. You can walk from a dispensary downtown as well as get to the celebration within minutes. After moving to Albuquerque, I forgot about Hash Bash. NM has had legal medical marijuana since 2007, but now the people I was with and I have recreational cannabis as well. My number one dispensary in Los Volcanes has a sale every month on strange products. She rotates through her inventory, something popular among all of the cannabis stores in Bernalillo County. You’d guess that I’d think if my own town had a marijuana celebration every year, however I was easily ignorant of the NM 420 Fest. It’s along Central Ave between 3rd St as well as 7th St on May 20th every single year, as well as this year is poised to be a blast. There will be food vendors of all kinds lined up as well as down Central Ave, giving all stoners a bountiful selection of delicious munchies to satisfy their appetites.
