I’m going back into the Voices of August vault each week to fetch some favorite posts.
This one is from 2014, written by John Knapp, who lives across the river in Vancouver, Washington.
What he wrote about Washington state’s nascent recreational marijuana industry made me laugh out loud, both then and now.
Two summers ago, the state had just opened the door to retail sales. “It’s legal, it’s for sale,” John observed. “And it’s unavailable.”
You have to know John and his understated personality to fully appreciate the wry humor in this piece.
