S/O This 96-Year-Old WWII Vet For Making The First Legal Recreational Cannabis Transaction in (Providence) Rhode Island
I blogged about this story earlier this year before and after it passed, but as of today, recreational cannabis is fully legal for purchase in Rhode Island. Even if you don't smoke tree or get down with some Eddie Vedders, there's no denying this is a great day for Rhody. This legislation helps create jobs and gives citizens something they've wanted for a long time; the legal right to take the edge off the brutality of existence in a capitalist society! Based on the caption, I'm not 100% sure if this is technically the first recreational legal transaction in the state, but it definitely is the first at this dispensary in the creative capital.
This purchase is a statement about cannabis and the wide array of people who use it to feel better in various ways. We've got a 96-year-old, O.G. Antifa, greatest generation bro getting down on the sweet cheeba. I wish we knew what he got. What's your method of choice, sir? My money's on an Eddie.
There's plenty of bad news around the world to bum you out. Our Senate just decided railroad workers don't deserve paid vacation. Kanye WeSSt is full on Nazi or at the very least a Nazi sympathizer. The loser government killed someone in Iran for simply beeping his horn in excitement after the U.S. beat that hateful nation (I stand with the citizens fighting for basic freedom). R.I.P. Mehran Samak.
But at least you can legally buy, smoke, vape, eat, or rub reefer products in Rhode Island. Just in time for Thursday Night Football; Go Pats! They might not win, but they're gonna look great tonight in jersey as red as this vet's eyes after he gets baked out of his gourd.
