but the doorway to my apartment building really smelled like pot.
i know what you're thinking. "steve, you live in san francisco. marijuana is virtually decriminalized there. you can't walk down a block without smelling it. so...why are you telling me this?"
well, because it really smelled like a whole lotta pot.
as if one of the mailboxes read "c.marin" and another read "t.chong".
as if a pot plant were growing out from the pavement.
as if the latest issue of "high times" were lying on the floor.
as if there were a glaucoma convention in my building.
as if all my mail were written on hemp.
as if the dry cleaner next door moved out and a bong wholesaler moved in.
as if they filmed an episode of "weeds" on my block. and it were scored by willie nelson and snoop dogg.
