Before my first trip out to Los Angeles, I had never been further west than the Mississippi River.
My parents lived in a number of odd arenas, but FL is where the people I was with and I landed in the end once my father left his old task plus started a business. Several of my high university friends left the state for schools in CA, however I was rejected by both UC Berkeley plus UC Riverside. My best associate John was accepted into UCLA plus kept urging me to visit him in the city at some point. The school campus is located in Westwood, a mere walking distance from the famed Beverly Hills. To a tourist care about myself, there was no way I could make a trip out to Los Angeles, CA separate from seeing the Hollywood Hills including Bel Air, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, plus Laurel Canyon. The two of us got a lot of cannabis on that trip from this cannabis dispensary that had just opened on Rodeo Dr. The two of us bought pre-rolled joints, edibles, tinctures, vaporizer cartridges, plus jars of flower buds. The dispensary was having a sale on high THC products, plus I decided to get a jar of cannabis concentrate. Thankfully the sale offset the recreational cannabis taxes levied on the entire purchase. People don’t realize that you’re paying both CA state taxes plus local municipal taxes being in Beverly Hills in Los Angeles County. The taxes in West Hollywood are even higher, so I was ecstatic to get all of my weed on that trip at marijuana stores in Beverly Hills. It was a phenomenal trip that I hope to repeat someday soon.
