“Yeah, I would even say we struck a nerve so to speak. We wrote about what a lot of (local) people are already thinking,” Brewbaker said.

They managed to persuade me to go to Kenya last year, but we canceled our trip to Turkey because things were getting blown up at the airport.

If you’re visiting Oregon to enjoy the region’s natural wonders or cultural trappings and want to enhance your stay with a little cannabis, an infused treat is an excellent choice. Oregon’s adult-use edibles are affordable, frequently low-dose, and offer the special-occasion highs that great travel stories are made of.
We compiled this list of Oregon’s most travel-friendly edibles to pair with your stop-through. Be sure to start small, keep what you buy in-state, and take a Lyft if you’ve imbibed.
Friendly advice: If you’re new to edibles, we recommend a 1:1 CBD-THC ratio. The cannabinoid CBD has been observed to ameliorate anxiety-related side effects of THC. With an equal dosage of CBD and THC, a calming, manageable experience is a more likely outcome…..Click Here To Keep Reading

Places of Interest in San Francisco
The Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge is the most photographed attraction of San Fransisco. It has a scenic setup and attracts a ton of visitors every year, especially during evenings when its orange-colored structure is peaking through blue waters of San Fransisco Bay into the red horizon. This two mile long bridge connects San Francisco to other northern American cities. It had taken four years to complete it and the hard work took the form of the longest suspension bridge in the world then.
This is the first place to explore if you have only a couple of days to spend in San Fransisco. This place features foodcourt and supermarket of the city and offers an unforgettable experience of touring the area on a cruise. Of particular interest is the San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park. It has a WW II submarine (USS Pampanito), which is considered an inseparable part of maritime history and a symbol of American victory against Germany.
Cable Cars were introduced in 1873 AD as the eyes, ears and nose of San Fransisco due to their reach to all the four corners of the city, including the hills. The cable cars are the most perfect way to get to the best that the city has on offer – Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf,and Nob Hill to name a few.
