Lawrence, Kansas

The place is very chill and down to earth. As much as marijuana seems to be a symbol of hippydom, i would have to say that Lawrence grows some of the finer buds in the states, of course next to Oregon and Boulder.

I came to Lawrence from a different part of the state because it is sort of an oasis--so to speak--in the middle of one of the reddest states there is, and I must say that it pretty much is that way. However, during the past five years that I have lived here, I have seen the place becoming less of a hippie haven and more of a hipster haven. You know, the kids who wear various shades of black with farmer hats that say John Deere and whatnot. Most of them are nice people, but they're incredibly clique-ish. Yeah, the town was once an overt hippie haven, but those people all grew up and either moved away or started various businesses or were elected to the city government. Hey, at least we can claim our own strain of pot--Trinity. All I have to say if you're coming to Lawrence looking for the hippie scene is that you're going to have to look pretty hard for it. It's there, but it takes some searching. And if you plan to stay for a while, then I definitely urge you to go explore Kansas a little. Take your enjoyment-enhancing gear and go for a drive through the Flint Hills or a little further west to the Smoky Hills. Most of you driving through on I-70 with a lackluster opinion of the state are really missing out. Actually, that highway is unfortunately one of the most boring roads in the state. Hey, and in 2000, the DEA busted one of the country's largest LSD labs that was operating out of an abandoned intercontinental ballistic missile silo in the Flint Hills. That was followed by what was probably the most drastic cultural shift that I've yet witnessed in Lawrence. Anyway, check out the Wakarusa Festival in June.

I am a local Lawrencian, born and raised. If you want to find good buds (I mean that in two ways), then you need to talk to people. Now that you can't smoke anywhere everyone stays at home...so they can smoke. People are pretty nice here, if you ask, you'll find what you're looking for.

Lawrence is a great place to hang out...local hippies can be found at the Bottleneck, Rudys Pizza, the Gaslight Tavern, third planet, creation station, or love garden...where theres a hippie, theres kb. But Lawrence is a great place to live, not just because of the marijuana...and if you do live in Lawrence and have some, contact me...IM IN NEED.
