The moment we walked through the double security door, that unmistakable smell enveloped me like a warm embrace from an old friend. Through a nondescript entrance near the historic city center, and past a smiling, thick-necked bouncer with dreads spilling down his back, techno music mingled with a dozen different tongues and ages and visages, and colorful art was spot lit on brick walls. Just beyond a bar stocked with good beer, tea, and an industrial coffee machine were shelves displaying jars filled with various strains of ganja, several of which are grown specifically for this private club. Tagging along with a member the only way to gain entrance, I hitched my green dream wagon to a friend of the proprietor, who regaled with stories of starting a new business in a nascent EU industry while rolling fat splifs of the most delicious, locally grown sativas. Grinders, papers, lighters and and ashtrays were set onto each of the coffee tables situated in candle-lit nooks, the overstuffed couches and mid-century chairs creating a relaxed, living room vibe (think less dispensary, more hip hotel lobby). While the progressiveness of California and a few other US states provide easy access to well-grown greenbud, the scene in Europe is less-visibly tolerant, but Americans sure didn’t write the book on smoking fine dope. Scratching the surface of any town to find the good food, art, wine, smoke, music, architecture takes time, conversations, and burning up the internet. Gratefully, the days of nervously, furtively scoring dime bags of shite herb from dodgy dealers in Washington Square Park has passed. But, man, oh man, don’t bogart that dube...

Sicilian grandmother-at-a-funeral wailing at an indifferent winter sky, our furry tribe now all departed, each long life passing too quickly for this heart to ever heal. Sweet old TinTin the only man to have literally drooled over me willful and crazy and devoted made it home with sandpaper kisses of gratitude and love before leaving us to hunt new forests.
