I remember coming to the Los Angeles area in the mid 1970s. It was my first time here, and the only thing I remember clearly is the beach. At the time I was a surfer, and my pal Ed and I had been traveling down the coastline, trying to ride as many hot waves as we could find. By staying in Los Angeles we had easy access to a dozen different great beaches. For six weeks we rented a room in a hostel and spent every waking out on the sand, riding the surf! Back then there were no legal cannabis dispensaries in Los Angeles, but cannabis was still very easy to find! There was one beach bum who had a cooler filled with cannabis products with him every day, so he was like a mobile cannabis dispensary. Several decades have passed, and recently my old friend Ed died. In his will he wanted his ashes to be spread on the beaches of Las Angeles, because of our great memories there. When I took his ashes out to Los Angeles, I thought it was only fitting that I stop by a cannabis dispensary on the way to the beach. Unlike the old days, cannabis is legally available in Los Angeles now, and you can buy it almost anywhere. I rolled a big juicy joint with Purple Haze, which had been Ed’s favorite strain of cannabis, and drove him to the beaches of Los Angeles. I just sat on the sand, smoking cannabis, and reliving the great times I had with Ed.
