Ever since I was a kid I have loved Halloween more than any other holiday.
I remember how depressed I got when I was too old to go trick-or-treating.
That feeling was quickly replaced by a sense of wonder when I realized how many fun adult things there were to do on Halloween. This is the best night of the year for parties. I still do what I have always done on Halloween – I put on an amazing costume, and carry a large bag of candy with me. Whenever I see a kid in a cool costume I will give them some candy, like reverse trick-or-treating. My cannabis dispensary obviously cannot hand out candy to children, since kids are not allowed in the store, but they do host a really killer party every Halloween. Last summer the marijuana store underwent a series of renovations, and they built a new screened-in patio as a smokers lounge behind the building. Since the lounge is not technically an “enclosed area” with walls and windows, it is legal to smoke cannabis there. There are federal laws that prohibit smoking tobacco or cannabis inside a building, but the smokers lounge was a loophole because of the screened-in walls. Halloween is the best night of the year at the cannabis dispensary, because everyone is in costume and ready to have fun. I fill up my trick or treat bag with cannabis edibles, and hand them out to any adult in a cool costume. I met my new girlfriend at the cannabis dispensary Halloween party, but that’s a story for another time.
