THE MOVE: Plan Accordingly - February 2022
Hey, y’all! What’s the move?
What’s hot in the A this winter? Vaccines, boosters and flu shots are all the rage. They pair great with public gatherings, family get togethers, the workplace and all public spaces ITP. Unless you find yourself in the wild north west of “Buckhead City,” where they live by their own set of rules. To be safe, check COVID deets on websites before attending anything below, as we know shit is constantly “subject to change” these days.
Wanna be a good person today? Do you have five minutes or less to go to cannabisincommon.org? Simply put in your zip and the site will call down the list of your Congresspersons. Leave voice messages, bc we know they never answer, politely reminding them that Americans have one thing overwhelming in common, ending cannabis prohibition. No doubt these politicians are spending the majority of their time worrying about reelection, so remind them who they work. At the time this column was published, Nikema Williams, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff had yet to respond to inquiries re: marijuana reform. Get on them, y’all! Bc we got bigger problems than weed these days!
Cute pandemic trends to keep: sanitizer everywhere, six-foot minimum personal space, masks, everything cashless and delivered and WFH! Can’t do needles? Keep that mask on, honeypot. For those who are ready to step out, read on for The Move.
