Berkeley… part 2…

a-1

Growing up in the Bay Area during the 60’s and 70’s, I may… maybe… know a little about the drug culture… Now, all of a sudden, one of those drugs is legal. My wife and I took our 17-year-old daughter and her 18-year-old boyfriend into a place that sold supplies for the usage of substance in question…

Yeah, it was like walking into any other kind of store. For some reason, the fact that it is no longer associated with an illegal substance makes the whole thing sort of boring.

There are a few new gadgets, some electronic devices that they didn’t have when I was a rebellious kid… but for the most part, things are pretty much the same.

I guess we will just have to see if I am going to take advantage of the new laws… but if I do, maybe I will share that with you too.

But it is funny how much time and money the cops used to spend, busting people with small amounts of weed… pot, dope,buds,smoke,ganja,grass, whatever the cool kids called it back in your day.

A few quick shots of some wall art…

A mural that pays tribute to Berkeley’s past as a center of cultural change…

A reminder of a turbulent time when there was a revolution to try to change the way society works.

Let’s hope we don’t have to go through that again… Trump… I’m looking at you…
