Cannabis Convention in Boston this April 2017


#202

Sometimes I was at 2 Morrisey by the Bayside Expo. But yeah. I was in for 7AM and out at 3:30PM
If I left any time after 5:30 I could plan on being at least 30 minutes late. If I left after 3:30 the 1h30m commute could easily become 2-3 hours on a Friday afternoon or 4+hours in snow. The last couple of years was in an 1987 Rabbit convertible with no heat since my ex got both vehicles in our divorce. I commuted from East Greenwich, RI for the first couple of years which was just as bad if not worse. I lasted through 2 mergers but the final one with BofA sealed the deal. When they made me pay for my previously free checking account, I walked into my local branch and closed it out of spite.

Banks, ugh. Sorry you had to go through all that BS but the end of your story about BofA is pretty funny.

I loved my Volkswagen Rabbit! The 1997 April Fool’s Day blizzard that rabbit went through that snow well, like a rabbit. It just went like a bat out of hell. Rip my little red rabbit.


#204

Yeah so I just made a little screen shot showing how where I grew up it was a shorter trip from Rocky Point in Warwick to Colt State Park in Bristol by boat than by car. The other alternate was to go 41 miles through Newport.



That Rabbit owed me nothing. I paid $850 for it and put 50k miles on it in about 3 years. Then sold it for $850.Ok I lie a little. Besides a few hundred in routine maintenance I did put $350 into it to paint it black because it was red. ha ha ha. I don't mind red cars anymore. I used to think they were speeding ticket magnets :beetle: Turns out I was the speeding ticket magnet

That’s amazing that by boat it’s so much shorter than by car. I have a story about having to ride my motorcycle across the Golden Gate Bridge during a storm. They were going to close the bridge down because of high winds and I had to get to work but anyway that story is for another time when we talk about close encounters with death.

Those little rabbits were fantastic and I’m extremely tall and there was still a lot of headroom in that little gangster.

Time to make dinner and then prepare myself for bed. See you on Sunday!


#206

#211

The weather is looking decent for the weekend in Boston. A morning shower possible on Saturday but will give way to some sunshine and very comfortable temperatures.


#212

This here is dedicated to those ( @garrigan62 , @latewood and everyone else) who are coming to the convention and will be using the subway trains.


#213

Here is a screen shot from an email from the Convention folks. For those of you who want the event app on your phone you can get it at your play store Apple Store.

This is the actual app you need:

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m getting pretty psyched about this! Trading seeds and “road-showing” some goods. Hopeful to make some personal connections and help kick up the interest in some of the cannabis based business concepts and ancillary opportunities I have been developing since Question 1 passed in Maine.


#215

Me too @willd!


#216

I am very excited…I’ll have that “kid in a candy store” look, amazed at the exhibition hall filled with tokers!

Hey Will, I have a story to tell you that should ease your mind about any trouble happening at the convention.

Today I was talking to a Boston police officer down by the Boston Commons park. I joked with him and said, “you will remember me this weekend at the cannabis convention and leave me alone, won’t you?”

He chuckled, waved his hand, and made a PSSH sound. He told me that yesterday there were hundreds of people gathered in the Boston Common all sparking up joints in celebration of 420. They were told to just leave everybody alone. Then the station started getting calls from a couple of people saying people were smoking marijuana in the park! Oh my God! He told me that dispatch had an order for them to write no tickets, confront no one, and to just walk through once just so their presence will be felt and then they left. It is illegal to smoke anything, even e-cigarettes in the Commons and that’s what he was referring to about writing tickets. You can get a ticket I think it’s $100 for smoking a cigarette or an e-cigarette in the park. Ridiculous but true.

Boston police couldn’t give a rat’s behind if people are smoking weed. I went to the Grateful Dead concert at Fenway Park this past summer and Ive never seen so much smoke at a show. At first I honestly thought they had a smoke machine and after a few minutes I finally got the whole picture. There were Boston police throughout the whole stadium and they just stood there talking to people and paying no attention to it.

@garrigan62 here is all you need to know to stay out of trouble in Boston

“Stop for all pedestrians in crosswalks”

Yup, that’s it. If you do that, you’ll fly under the radar all weekend :stuck_out_tongue:


#219

Even if they cross against the light… cause they do in Boston.


#220

Guilty as charged! :stuck_out_tongue:

@Sl1

No, no NO!!! I’ve gotten really good at just clipping their heels. Took me years but I finally got it down. Even more fun on the motorcycle :slight_smile:
