WA Homegrow?

Washington doesn’t allow homegrown marijuana. I’ve been watching the bills for a few years trying to change this law, and just a few moments ago the bill to legalize was passed out of committee. A huge advancement.

People have been home growing in Washington for over 50 years and will continue to do so […]

Deming

Here I am again. I have some work to be done on my RV at Jimmy’s, which I’ll write about later. Meantime I’m avoiding Quartzsite right now because I don’t like being there while the tent show is going on. I’ll get to Q when the crowds go away.

It will be cold here, […]

New Mexico Marijuana

I’ll be watching the project to pass a legalized cannabis law in New Mexico, the 12th state to do so, the second by legislative action and not by citizen initiative. The proposed bill was filed yesterday in advance of the session which opens Monday.

A good article can be read here. I skimmed the […]

Marathon, TX

I’ve been driving for three days in a fog bank. West Texas is bad enough, but to not see anything but the road is miserable. But, tonight a rain storm comes in. To avoid it I’m resting for two nights in Marathon.

I like parking at Marathon Motel and RV because of it’s location, […]

Laredo; back on the road

I’m glad I’m back to moving again, and happy to be headed for Deming.

The RGV has become a pain in the butt with traffic and people. It used to be you could avoid all that, but the population boom means more cars on their (in)famous expressway system. And harder on the frontage roads. […]

Texas pot

Texas has some of the most strict and draconian anti-marijuana laws in the country, down there with Idaho and Mississippi. So it was a surprise when it came to light that arrests for cannabis are down about 50%. Since hemp was legalized.

The storyline here is that prosecutors claim that they can’t prove someone […]

Illinois is a bit different

I’m impressed with how Illinois rolled out it’s pot legalization program. There are far more people standing in lines around the state than I’ve seen before, far more than possibly could be served by any store. The day was marked by politicians showing up (governor’s office, legislators, mayors, aldermen) and participating. The sheer number […]

Illinois Pot is legal

Sales began this morning at 0600 in Illinois, the 11th state to legalize and the first state to do so by legislative action, not by citizen petition. There are about 30 stores open today state-wide, around half in the Chicago area.

The lines are very long, by far the longest I’ve seen on other […]

Linn, Texas

Linn is a named spot in the RGV north of Edinburg, out in the country about 20 miles. It doesn’t have expressways, arterials, and masses of people and cars, yet I’m close to stores and the birding places.

The place I had in Los Fresnos was one of the worst RV “resorts” I’ve had. […]

Los Fresnos

Los Fresnos is at the south end of the Rio Grande Valley, on TX100 on the way to Port Isabel. It’s hot, humid, mosquitoes are everywhere, as are fire ants. Typical RGV, but a “cold” front is coming through tonight which should help.
