It’s official. I am Californicated. I swore it would never happen to me, but it has.

Think you’re above it? Think again.

This week I traveled on vacation to Florida. The first thing I noticed while in search of the perfect Cuban (sandwich) was that even at 6 a.m., local workers on the streets of Miami rushing to work on their bikes and motorcycles, helmet-less, had one hand on their handlebars, and the other on a big, fat Cuban cigar! Smoking while driving, and without a helmet would probably get you hard time in California!

Our first month living in California, my daughter was stopped by police twice in a week’s time on her yellow beach bike because, as the officers said, she “looked suspicious.” She has not been back on a bike since. She was truly traumatized.

But that is just the beginning.

Our second night in Miami, my husband and I went dancing. We walked out of an establishment with our mojitos in hand. Now to those of you outside of California still living in America, that might not sound crazy. But you are not Californicated. In California, you cannot have alcohol on the streets, or on the beach. You cannot smoke cigarettes or cigars most anywhere, either. You can, however, smoke pot almost anywhere…




  1. I’m the owner of JustCBD label (justcbdstore.com) and am trying to grow my wholesale side of business. I really hope that anybody at targetdomain give me some advice . I thought that the most suitable way to do this would be to connect to vape shops and cbd stores. I was hoping if anybody at all could suggest a trustworthy website where I can get CBD Shops B2B Data List I am currently taking a look at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the most suitable selection and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?

  4. Superb blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any suggestions? Thanks! adreamoftrains web hosting

  5. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same
    comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

  6. Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask! y2yxvvfw cheap flights

    Did you develop this site yourself? Please reply back as I’m wanting to create my own personal
    blog and would love to learn where you got
    this from or just what the theme is named. Thanks!
