Right after I graduated from high school I set out on the most epic road trip of my life.
I had emptied my bank account, and my old bedroom from my parents house. Everything I owned in the world was in my little van, which I intended to drive across the country to start a new life on the west coast. It was a bold dream, with a lot of risk, but I was young and felt invincible. Alas, my van was not quite so invincible, and it broke down about five miles outside of Denver, Colorado. I lived in that van for a while, until the city of Denver took me in and made me feel at home. That was twelve years ago, and I never got the van fixed, nor did I ever leave Denver. What started off as an accident ended up changing my whole life for the better, because I literally can’t imagine living anywhere but Denver. The economy in Denver is tremendous, and these days it’s better than ever thanks to the thriving cannabis industry. Colorado was on the forefront of cannabis legalization, and the result has been increasing tourism to Denver. There are a thousand reasons to visit the city of Denver, but cannabis is the biggest for some people. There are dispensary tours and cannabis junkets that fly in parties of people to Denver from all over the world. I work for a local cannabis company that caters to these tourists, and helps them safely get around Denver and have the best time of their lives.
