My coworkers and I went to Chicago, Illinois for a couple of days.
We were there on business, but we played a couple of rounds of golf and we went sightseeing.
We were only there for the extra days to make sure that things went smoothly, but our business was really handled on the morning of the second day. After all of the paperwork was signed, my coworkers and I decided to go to the bar in the hotel to get drunk. It was only 11:00 a.m., but we deserved a round of drinks after closing that deal. The investors had cold feet for 6 months and they kept going back and forth. Now that we finally had to check in our hands, I was ready to celebrate. My friends and I went to the bar and we also visited a recreational marijuana shop. Recreational marijuana is legal in the state of illinois. Adults over the age of 21 can buy and possess recreational marijuana products up to 30 grams of flower and 5 grams of concentrate. We weren’t very far from the marijuana shop and delivery service, so we walked there after our dinner. Inside of the place were a variety of different people including older folks, younger people, and disabled people. The vibe was super chill and relaxing. Everybody was smoking cannabis and nobody was worried about getting caught by the police. I never saw anything like that before in my life. It was unusual and interesting to see Illinois residents enjoying the right to buy marijuana legally.
