I have been contemplating a lot recently about what it would be like to be in an environment where tolerance of marijuana is broadly accepted and being able to enjoy a certain quality of life without being treated like a second class citizen.
Knowing that in order to accomplish this I would have to go somewhere else other than where I currently reside, such as another state or country.
For years living in the United States and wanting to be able to enjoy smoking marijuana has been rocky if not problematic at times. Admittedly in my own personal desire to be able to smoke marijuana I have lost jobs, relationships and even my freedom. Stubbornly I have resisted the moral majority and the laws of the land in my own pursuit of happiness.
I started wondering if other people felt this oppressiveness around them and wished they could just get away from it all, even if it was just temporarily.
If I was a drinking man, if I wanted to be able to be around like minded people who enjoyed a drink in a social environment all I would have to do is visit my local bar, but I am not, so inevitably finding an socially acceptable equivalent is non existent.in my present environment.
I can only imagine how nice it would be to be able to go to a local coffeehouse and smoke some marijuana. To be able to have conversations about the ways of the world and not be harassed in the process.
It truly seems so out of balance in this country right now, because some people are already able to have this kind of freedom I yearn for. While others are being incarcerated. It almost seems like 2 different countries now.
Fortunately, I have managed to come across some like minded people who are doing something to make a difference! They have legally figured out ways to provide a safe environment for people who need a break from the oppression cast down upon us by our closed minded government.
I managed to find a niche of folks who provide a service to the marijuana community by providing a temporary place to go, to get away, and freely enjoy marijuana.
Before I tell you where you can go for a marijuana friendly vacation I want to step back a second and tell you how I found this site, or how it found me.
I recently created a site called 420friendlygetaways.com, and I explained on it how I was looking for travel agents who cater to the marijuana community to advertise on my site. I guess it was about a week later I actually got contacted by a company that actually does such a thing.
We talked back and forth via email and telephone for a bit and I decided I would let them create an ad and put it up on my new website. I am not charging them to advertise there, I explained that I was just wanting to do something to help out the marijuana community by letting them know that such a unique service was available to them. Well I also put it out there that if I helped give them some business that maybe they could toss ole Bud a bone and hook him up on a nice 420 friendly vacation one day.
Okay if you read this far and might be interested in a 420 friendly getaway, check out RastaVacations.com "Marijuana Friendly Vacations for Patients and Supporters"
This travel agency has been providing marijuana friendly vacations to California, Netherlands, and Jamaica for over 4 years now. They have personally visited each establishment to ensure that the clients have a clean, safe place to go to relax, have a good time, and enjoy marijuana.
I am also doing some research on Portugal vacations where marijuana has been decriminalized, as well as Argentina, where last year the supreme court had ruled that it is unconstitutional to punish people for using marijuana for personal consumption.
I am glad the supreme court in Argentina recognized the oppressiveness of marijuana prohibition on it's people and had the good sense to do the right thing. The United States needs to do some serious catching up in that regard.
Well I hope this helped some folks come up with some interesting ideas for that next vacation they're planning.
If you go to the website and decide to use their services please tell them Killer Bud referred ya!
