Before I drive out to the farm for a family reunion, I always make a pit stop at a cannabis dispensary to load up on supplies for the weekend
I have a very big family. My mother was raised on a farm. As was the custom of the time in the 30s and 40s, farmers tended to have big families with lots of kids. This provided an ample source of labor for the farm. My mother was one of seven children, but during her teenage years a family tragedy caused them to take in four more cousins to live with them. That was 11 kids under one roof, and over the years most of them remained very close. When the family holds a reunion once a year, on the old farmland in rural Illinois, it’s always a huge event. All of those 11 kids ended up with families of their own, and most of those families live right here in Illinois. I moved to Chicago some years ago, which really feels like it’s on a different planet from the rest of Illinois. Although medical cannabis is legal throughout all of Illinois, it always seems hard to find a good dispensary outside of Chicago. In the city I have access to a half a dozen great cannabis dispensaries within a few blocks of my apartment. Before I drive out to the farm for a family reunion, I always make a pit stop at a cannabis dispensary to load up on supplies for the weekend. My favorite part about going to the family reunions is the long drive to the most remote parts of Illinois. With the endless fields of corn and soybeans, and the beautiful sunsets, Illinois is really pretty once you get outside of the city.
