I love Halloween.
Of all the holidays of the year, including Christmas and my birthday, Halloween is my favorite.
I always decorate my house, inside and out, on the first day of the month so I can enjoy that spooky feeling for as long as possible. I also put a lot of thought and effort into my costume. If I don’t have a big Halloween party to attend, I still wear a costume just to hand out candy to the trick-or-treaters. Last Halloween I got to do something I had never done before – a costume party at the local cannabis dispensary. Since pot was legalized in this state we have had several different cannabis dispensaries open in town, and they are all competing for the same customers. My favorite marijuana dispensary is the one that set up a smokers lounge to encourage their customers to spend more time at the store. Last Halloween the cannabis dispensary hosted a costume party where they promised there would be live music and free prizes. I thought about dressing up as a giant cannabis leaf, but instead I dressed up as Tommy Chong. I’m so glad I did, because there were three other ladies at the party all wearing cannabis lead costumes! There wasn’t another Tommy Chong costume present, but I did find two different “Cheeches” and we took some selfies in the cannabis dispensary. Everyone who attended the party got a special piece of trick or treat candy that was actually a cannabis edible. The grand prize winner won a 6-pack of pre-rolled cannabis joints.
