It feels progressive to be talking about traveling and Cannabis, when only a few years ago the concept was entirely a pipe dream. I remember hiding small amounts of weed or vapor pens and having panic attacks trying to 11 get through airport security, or hiding the dab rig as a car headed into California at the fruit check station. My, how things have changed. Today I have clients who have rented private CANNABIS AND jets simply to transport their Cannabis, and the TRAVEL GO TSA official policy on all drugs seems to be “if you HAND IN HAND aren’t a dealer we won’t bother you.” Now that AS JOINTS our favorite drug of choice is spreading around ARE PASSED the country and world, we Cannabis lovers get to AROUND THE choose our vacations around the plant-- and they WORLD, AND don’t include a jail cell. THIS MONTH’S Cannabis and travel go hand in hand as joints ISSUE DIVES are passed around the world, and this month’s INTO SOME issue dives into some great local and national opportunities to experience Cannabis. Whether it’s GREAT LOCAL AND NATIONAL eating high, hiking while medicated, or melting OPPORTUNITIES into a music festival, there’s a lot of opportunity to enjoy your medicine while having fun this summer. TO EXPERIENCE CANNABIS. A known side effect of Cannabis is feeling good, so get out and enjoy it! With Cannabis Bed & Breakfast retreats opening all over the country, consumption lounges popping up in California, Nevada and Alaska, and major events like Cannabis Cups happening in the US and elsewhere, now is the time to be a Cannabis pioneer. While we always recommend traveling safely and cautiously, the only thing I am scared of is missing a good time. I hope you enjoy this amazing issue of Maryland Leaf, and remember to take it with you to guide your adventures this summer. Thanks for reading and sharing the Leaf!
