Cheap Entertainment

We didn't have a plan today and we didn't want to spend much money so we did two interesting things for our entertainment today...

The first was buying a bottle of sarsaparilla, a beverage I'd never tried before.  I saw it at the grocery store and thought it would be interesting to give it a try.  It was just OK.  It it similar to root beer (I had to look up the difference--sarsaparilla is made with sarsaparilla root only and root beer is made with sarsaparilla root and other things).  I like root beer better.

The second was going to a marijuana dispensary.  Both hubby and I haven't seen marijuana since the 1970s and we happened to be shopping in the same complex as a marijuana dispensary (marijuana is legal in Nevada) so we went in to take a look.  Hubby was weirded out that something that had been illegal his entire life was now on display in sales racks.  Some of his (elderly) friends recommended CBD oil (it's derived from marijuana but doesn't make you high) for his back pain.  We took a look around, everything seemed very expensive, and we ended up not buying anything.  It was an interesting experience though.


  1. Is the oil a rub, or an inhalant?

    1. They had all kinds--oil, pain patch, vape cartridges, edibles, as well as roll your own stuff. Capitalism is alive and well in the marijuana industry here!
