The first time I stayed in Albuquerque it was a total accident; This was in the late 1971s, right after I had graduated from middle school, i had no desire to join the military, get a job, or attend college classes. Instead I took the few hundred dollars I had saved up, jumped in my van with my lady Ella, plus started driving. Initially the plan was to make it to the west coast, however after a few days my associate and I stopped looking at maps plus just drove wherever the roads took us. It went absolutely well for about 2 weeks, plus then the van broke down plus my associate and I found ourselves stuck in Albuquerque, New Mexico for a stage of time. This was a long time ago, remember, so there weren’t any legal cannabis dispensaries in Albuquerque, or somewhere else! Fortunately, even then the town of Albuquerque was genuinely friendly towards marijuana, however so long as you didn’t like up a joint plus wander into the Albuquerque police department, chances are nobody would bother you, but ella plus I wound up making some friends, plus hung around Albuquerque living in our broken van for many months. Eventually Ella found a enjoyable job with a local dentist, plus I started selling cannabis to make money… One morning she left me for the dentist. I decided to transfer away from Albuquerque plus start over fresh somewhere new. It took a while to get over my broken heart, plus although I would like to visit Albuquerque again one morning, I fear it holds too many painful memories for me.
