As a kid I grew up on the Oregon coast, but I always spent my summer vacations in Illinois.
- My parents had grown up in rural Illinois, and we still had a lot of family back there, so that’s where I was shipped off to when school was out of session.
My folks worked a lot, and didn’t want me spending the whole summer by myself around the house, so they put me on a bus to spend time with my family on the farm in Illinois. .Until I was a teenager I thought Illinois consisted entirely of farms, and had no idea there were any major cities. Where I was staying in Illinois was so remote we had to drive thirty minutes to find a gas station, and an hour to get to a movie theater. As an adult, I get to see the other side of Illinois, and I have to say I like it a lot more. Illinois is a state of vivid contrasts, and the metropolitan areas are as different from the countryside as night and day. Any population center in Illinois will have many forms of culture, cuisine, and of course cannabis. Call it the 3 C’s of Illinois! Is it any surprise Illinois is adept at growing amazing cannabis crops, given how long they have been farming this land? I have smoked a lot of weed in a lot of places, and would say that Illinois cannabis is as good as any exotic strain from around the world. I’m so glad I got off the farm and explored Illinois.
