Selling faucets and bathroom fixtures for a living is not exactly a thrill-ride. It’s a fine job, to be sure. The pay is decent, I have full medical and dental benefits, and the schedule never changes. On the other hand, there has never been one interesting day at work, it’s always exactly the same. To break the boredom, I always jump at the chance to attend the big national fixture industry trade show. This year it was held in Philadelphia, which was exciting for me because it’s a place I have always wanted to see firsthand. Philadelphia is so rich in history, I was eager to attend this trade show… just so I could blow off most of it and tour the city instead. There are few places in America with as rich and important a history as Philadelphia, home to many patriots and birthplace to a revolution! With that in mind, I was stoked to also find out that cannabis is legal in Philadelphia. I even found a historically themed cannabis dispensary that played up the political history of Philly. There was a mural on the outside of the cannabis shop depicting some of the greatest figures in Philadelphia’s history. It was a beat combination of fact and fiction, because some of these Philly icons were shown smoking cannabis. It was cool to see Ben Franklin ripping a giant toke from a cannabis bong, but I’m not sure it’s historically accurate or representative of Philadelphia’s past. I still took a selfie in front of the mural, just because it looked cool.
