Even though Albuquerque is famous for its cannabis, that doesn’t mean people can smoke inside my yoga studio.
I know I was taking a big risk, but opening a yoga studio in Albuquerque wound up being the best decision I ever made! This was about ten years ago, right at the beginning of the population boom. For such a quiet, dignified town, Albuquerque has certainly become a hotspot. Legal weed is one reason for that, and so is the surge in popularity we got from the TV show Breaking Bad. The status of the city has been slowly rising for years now, and my yoga studio has reaped the benefits! I am currently one of the biggest yoga studios in all of Albuquerque, and part of the reason for that is because I share a storefront with a cannabis dispensary. The connection between yoga and cannabis is well documented, and the people of Albuquerque have responded in force. I’m sure you already know that Albuquerque is considered one of the hot-spots for medical cannabis throughout the southwest. Combining the powers of yoga and weed in one business was a brilliant idea, and it has been paying off bigtime. Even though Albuquerque is famous for its cannabis, that doesn’t mean people can smoke inside my yoga studio. Legal status of cannabis aside, the federal anti-smoking laws are still enforced, even in Albuquerque. Yoga is a way to focus your spirit and unlock your mind, and I will admit that cannabis really helps with the process. But if my clients had to work out while coughing from a room full of cannabis smoke, I doubt I would be the hottest studio in Albuquerque.
