Just Asking For A Friend

Let’s say I’m asking this for a friend.

My friend plans a camping trip to Colorado’s High Country when his sister and brother-in-law fly into visit him next week. My friend mentioned that they planned to stay the weekend in Rocky Mountain National Park. They are prepared with the Big Agnes Copper Hotel UL Ultralight Backpacking Tent, Sea To Summit Ember EB II sleeping bags rated for 25-degrees, and even the Adventure Medical Kit Mountain Series Hiker Medical Kit from REI.

And my friend has his 9 Pound Hammer. Recommended by Leafy as one of the 100 strains you must try before you die, the Hammer is an 80% indica strain whose dense buds are coated in resin, offering sweet grape and lime flavors with effects that are heavy and long-lasting.

I’m asking for my friend if it’s okay to bring the Hammer along or not.

Colorado has 64 counties, 271 incorporated municipalities, comprising 196 towns, 73 cities, and two consolidated city and county governments. Before you imbibe, check to confirm that the place you’ve chosen is authorized and legal.

Tell your friend that, okay.
