The first time I went to Vegas was for a labor thing – a convention and product expo to promote the newest wave of technology in the industry, i was eager to volunteer for the trip, and was surprised no one was interested, and the other men in the office were all a bit older, and had no interest in traveling.
I was stoked about it, because I got to fly across the country, stay in a nice hotel, and experience legal gambling, and the office was going to pay for it all, but well, they weren’t paying for the gambling, but they covered everything else.
I didn’t gamble as much as I thought I would, because Las Vegas has so much other amazing stuff to offer, besides, I lost multiple hundred bucks on blackjack our first night, so I l acquired the severe lesson that in Las Vegas the home always wins! From the casino I walked around the block to find one of the multiple excellent cannabis dispensaries Las Vegas has to offer, and a couple grams of top-tier marijuana made me forget all about our bad luck in the casino. The rest of our first night in Vegas was spent simply walking around, taking it all in. There is a garish majesty to the neighborhood of Las Vegas, and I have to say that the buzz I had from cannabis made the neon look so much brighter. I did manage to attend most of the labor functions I needed to, but most of the weekend was spent prowling Las Vegas and having a grand time.
