Jon and Bobby went on a quest over the weekend. That quest was to have the most fun at the NECanna Convention in the history of the convention. They started their journey outside in front of the Hynes Convention Center. As they looked around the street (while enjoying a Fronto Leaf filled with Super Pineapple Haze) they saw all of the people gearing up to head in and see what the Cannabis community had to offer. It was at that moment they came to a strong realization. They needed to get some food. Armed with a newly enlivened hunger for chicken fingers they embarked back across the street to the bar. The munchies were strong. They ate as much as possible and went back out side to enjoy another Fronto. So far, so fun
Upon entering they could see this year was much different than the conventions of years past. There was a station to enter your name address and other information that would be printed on a badge to wear in the convention. They promptly lied (google is watching) and had fake info on their chest. The tables were bigger and fuller this year. They stretched further also. Where there was once a small area exclusively for cannabis education, there was now a second area for vendors and booths. The space was completely used for the first time in recent memory. The mood was also different. Everyone there seemed to know the same thing. Cannabis is going fully recreational in July and there is much to be done. After meeting up with some old friends (at the New England Grassroots booth) , also meeting some with new friends (at the Green Nurses booth), the guys got to work. Rubbing elbows and creating friction with all of the cannabis industries’ best and brightest minds. The fun was great. The experience was great. The people were also great. The future of Cannabis in Massachusetts is even greater.
After the convention the munchies snuck up on the guys once more. But that wasn’t the only hunger. The hunger to turn business into pleasure was overwhelming. The guys hit up a local bar and decided to meet up with some locals and talk a little seaweed. After giving away the legal limit of cannabis to everyone that would talk to them the guys turned their attention to the real goal of the day. The after party. The real fun.
Jon and Bobby headed to a secret location on Newbury St. where they were met by a large bouncer checking IDs. This is the first time in the history of TalkingSeaweed.com they had their IDs checked to get stoned. They passed the bouncers age test and handed him some edibles on the way in. Then they took a secret elevator to heaven. As they walked in Jon and Bobby were met by another bouncer. The official bouncer of heaven. He also wanted to make sure the two weren’t assholes. Armed with a pocket full of weed and a belly full of whiskey the guys started their next mission. To find a charger for Jon’s phone. After 10 minutes of asking around for a charger that would fit the phone, the weed in their pockets was basically screaming to come out. In the front of the venue there were vendors, a sitting area, and a dance floor. But just like a mullet the real party was in the back. A door led to the back area. In the back there were 2 smoke machines. They were called Bobby and Jon. They rolled up another 5 frontos and took the metaphoric elevator to heaven this time.
After a couple more beers and a couple more blunts, Jon and Bobby decided to leave. But the fun had just begun. The next few hours were spent finishing all the blunts and recording a podcast. Clips coming soon!!
