What’s the deal with pot shops? Have you ever walked into a recreational cannabis dispensary only to feel like you’ve entered into an episode of Star Trek? I mean, come on, it’s like stepping into a medical facility on a space cruiser. White coats, scientific terminology, and enough flowers to stock a botanist’s dream.
I recently paid a visit to Pecos Valley Production, and I gotta tell you, I was half-expecting to see Captain Kirk arguing with Spock about the different strains of weed. “It’s medicine, Jim, but not as we know it!”
Picture this: a weed dispensary in the heart of Roswell, NM. Sounds like an extraterrestrial party, right? You walk in there, and you’re greeted by some genomes of green ganja that seem like they could have been cultivated on Mars. But no, it’s not science fiction, it’s science FACTion – I mean faction!
Clovis, NM is another interesting spot on the cannabis tour. Clovis could be mistaken for a small country town stuck in the wild west yet there’s a pot shop right in the center of all this rustic regress. Quite a giggle when you think about it, isn’t it? One minute you’re out horse riding, the next you’re sampling Sativa.
Oh, and let’s not forget Alamogordo, NM. I can’t help but chuckle when I think about stumbling upon a medical marijuana dispensary amidst the White Sands National Park and the New Mexico Museum of Space History. After all, isn’t getting high the ultimate space travel?
But you don’t see George Jetson lighting up, do you? Just imagine him flying around in his spaceship, zero gravity making the smoke float around in little balls. I suppose he’d probably pass on puffing when he’s already so far up!
And then you come to Hobbs, NM. Now, Hobbs does a great job of putting the ‘casual’ back into ‘casual’ cannabis. They pride themselves on their relaxed atmosphere… basically, the exact opposite of everything we’ve been talking about!
Then you have your Albuquerque, and Las Cruces. Now these places, they’ve got the recreational cannabis dispensary thing down to a T. Albuquerque isn’t just known for its International Balloon Fiesta anymore. Sure, people still come for the balloons, but they also stay for the bud. And Las Cruces, nestled between the Organ Mountains and the Rio Grande, seems like as good a place as any to plant a pot shop.
So, next time you take a tour of New Mexico, don’t forget to visit the humorous and diverse world of recreational cannabis dispensaries. Make a pit stop in Pecos Valley Production, where the highs are not just hilarious, they’re also absolutely legitimate. Now that’s a Seinfeld episode I’d love to watch.
