Vapes fit right into my pocket, are especially discreet and are available in a rewarding array of flavors and potency
My home state of Michigan finally legalized recreational marijuana in 2018. Finally, adults over 21 years of age are allowed to grow, consume and possess cannabis. The first recreational dispensaries opened in December 2019 in Ann Arbor and Morenci. I live in Whitehall, and it takes me two and a half hours to drive to Ann Arbor. It’s more than a three hour drive to get to Morenci. I actually made these trips a couple of times. Since the law only allows possessions of up to 2.5 ounces of flower or 15 grams of concentrate, it was a huge commute for a very small amount of produce. I was extremely delighted when several dispensaries opened for business in Whitehall. It’s not quick and convenient for me to visit, browse and shop. I’ve had the opportunity to explore all sorts of consumption methods, brands and strains. While I am most familiar with smoking traditional flower, I always enjoy the simplicity and affordability of pre-rolls. I can buy a single joint and find out if I like a particular strain. I can buy packs of favorites. However, I’ve discovered that vapes are a wonderful and modern alternative to old-school flower. The vape pens require nothing more than pushing a button and inhaling. Because the cannabis oil is heated to the point of vapor, there are no carcinogens, making vapes easier on the lungs. There’s also no ash, smoke or odors. Vapes fit right into my pocket, are especially discreet and are available in a rewarding array of flavors and potency. I am thrilled that I can shop for vapes at my local dispensary.
