The Pacific Northwest was a truly amazing place to grow up.
Although I was right on the coast — so close I could see the ocean from my bedroom window — there was a very small-town feel to it.
We were a tight knit group of neighbors, a few miles away from the closest town of any real size. I am glad I got to spend my childhood in such a peaceful place, but after I graduated high school, I knew I needed to head to the big city and start a new life in Seattle, Washington. It may not be New York or LA, but to me Seattle was where I had always dreamed of going to live. They call it the Emerald City, and I assume that is because of the amazing strains of “green” ior cannabis that are cultivated here. It was previously known as Queen City and Jet City, so I think we can all agree Seattle may have a bit of an identity crisis on its hands! For me Seattle is the perfect mid-point between the culture and convenience of a major metropolitan area and the small-town feel of community. Even though I live in one of the largest most important cities on the west coast, I often forget that Seattle isn’t just another sleepy small town. I have never had any problem with crime since moving here, which is perhaps due to the progressive culture we have here in Seattle. We embrace all walks of life, all peoples, all colors, all languages, all sexualities, and we also have the best cannabis you can find in the country!
