Denver in autumn is magical. The air in the Mile High city has a bite to it and there is a palpable vibe that there is a change in the season.
After parking our RV in a spectacular park a few miles outside of the the city, we made our way into town for some Mexican food. After devouring our meal (Tiffany had a tasty chimichanga and I opted for the authentic tacos carnitas), we found ourselves in a fun conversation with Arthur, an affable gent sitting at the table next to us.
Arthur told us he was on his dinner break from his budtending gig at Green Man Cannabis, a marijuana retail store within walking distance to the taqueria. Well, we just couldn’t resist.
As we walked to the GMC, Arthur told us how marijuana has helped him improve his quality of life — “I traded in my bottle of whiskey for a bottle of weed and poured myself into my new job,” he said with a smile.
Arthur recommended an amazing chocolate and burnt caramel truffle, a perfect dessert after our Mexican meal! We also purchased a cartridge for Tiffany’s vape pen for later in the evening.
Arthur’s kind smile and vast knowledge of cannabis helped us achieve that world-famous Rocky Mountain high!
