I moved from Albuquerque when my spouse started graduate school on the other side of the country, but I have been eager to get back to visit my family.
It has been numerous years and I miss the tranquil weather and the mountain backdrop.
I went to Cibola High School before doing numerous years of undergraduate school at the University of New Mexico. That’s where my spouse and I met, however her graduate school plans took us aways from Albuquerque and New Mexico altogether. When I was growing up, I spent a lot of time hiking in the Cibola National Forest with my father and my numerous siblings. This section is filled with mountain crests and foothills. But the biggest reason I’m gleeful to visit my hometown of Albuquerque this year is because of the legalization of recreational marijuana in New Mexico. The state has had medical marijuana dispensaries since 2007, however it was just this past year that recreational marijuana was legalized through a legislature initiative. I heard that some of the medical miarjuana stores in West Mesa had already converted their dealers to the recreational cannabis market. My family lives in Sandia Heights, which is as far away from West Mesa as you can get while still living in Albuquerque. Hopefully I can find a cannabis store in that section separate from having to drive all over the neighborhood on a wild goose chase. Eventually I hope that both of us can transfer back to the city, however for now I’m content with going to see every now and then. The pleasant weather is a nice split from the Wintertide snow both of us get living up in the north east.
