Marijuana legal in Illinois!

Well, well, well, So Illinois has FINALLY legalized Marijuana! There may be a reason to stay in the state, but not enough to stay in Oak Park, IL however! I doubt that Oak Park, can be “trendy” enough to get on the bandwagon and issue the business licenses to have recreational dispensaries. Yes, there are medical ones, but I am talking about recreational where parking and facilities for the amount of customer traffic a business occurs!

When I was in Vegas, recreational dispensaries were in buildings the size of a CVS or even a Costco, and there is no where in Oak Park, IL where that commercial need can be met. The village is too busy trying to build condos everywhere and “hoodwink” people out of their property values to really be concerned on a possible commercial opportunity that would definitely help the village and its residents financially.

Of course, I know some idiots would argue that it may bring a criminal or unsavory element to Oak Park, IL but seriously we have kids writing racist crap in public places so such bullshit is unwarranted. But that is alright other suburbs and cities in Illinois will profit, the rest of us will be baked, and Oak Park, IL will be out of shits luck due to its outmoded, and outdated way of doing things.

The Las Vegas Strip compared to Oak Park, IL

So the strip in las Vegas is so amazing, the whole thing is like a show onto itself. I mean nothing in Chicago and especially oak park, il can compare, if this is sin city I don’t want to be good ever again! The lights are fantastic, and we are talking about resort signs! Being out in the desert the fountains are just amazing, and you can actually spend a good couple of minutes watching or filming them in action.

These fountains actually make Buckingham fountain look like it needs a major upgrade. I stayed away from the shows because there was too many elderly people and large groups of preppy “standouts” going to them, so I digress I stayed on the strip. As a true Chicagoan I tried a few restaurants out because we definitely know about food here. In fact Gordon Ramsey has about 3 different restaurants out in Vegas and yes there is also hell’s kitchen. I went by the in and out burger, sprinkles (cupcakes), a ramen and a hall place the strip had definitely a lot of variety.
