Family Album: Denver, CO. Circa 1970

High Test Weed

“It all started many years ago on the classic, yet stereotypical drive to college, first semester of freshman year. Car packed, driving down a 2-lane highway in Northern California, my dad started that oh-so-typical awkward conversation about partying and to be careful out on my own.  But the conversation quickly turned to him recounting stories of back when he used to smoke a little dope from time to time. Eventually it came out that he just couldn’t smoke today’s “high-test” weed anymore, it was just too potent.”
