Pouf, pouf, polls: a play-by-play stoner for election day
We have a general idea of how election days are going, even if we don’t see the results on the same day. The lines, the cover, the stickers.
For weed lovers like me, Election Day is also a reason to blow big smoke and stay elevated – just in case something goes wrong. Join me on my election day 2020.
8 a.m .: personal vote
This year I vote in person on Election Day and a bowl of Blue Dream is the perfect way to start my day. It calms me down but still keeps me clear. I’ve already checked my registration twice and checked my voting slip three times. Now it’s time to smoke the results I want to see!
Like every other day, I will also be taking 10 mg of full spectrum CBD to keep myself on an even keel.

11am: back from the polls
While I would normally keep my PAX era with me for medication on the go, playing them on the post-book polls is a must. Unfortunately, I don’t know how long it will take, but that’s why I made sure to wake up and bake.
When I get home, I’ll be ready to step on my flo and celebrate my participation in this historic race with one of my favorite sativas. Time to log in for work!

It could be hours or even days to get all of the results this year, which means I’ll need something in the long run. To me, that means it’s time to roll up a backwoods.
With a forest full of sundae drivers, I can set the stump on fire and give my body some of the relaxing effects I need to get through a long night of updates and breaking news.
5 p.m .: make dinner
Election day is always perfect for home cooking or a big family meal that takes the whole house away from the chaos. This year we’re leaning heavily on Taco Tuesday.
To keep my worries at bay, I’m going to be working on a mango salsa recipe for my tacos while enjoying a little Mango Kush while I prepare dinner. I think of steak, fish and carnitas. Yum.
Who knows how long into the night I’ll be tracking results this year. What I do know is that I want to sleep soundly when it’s all over. That’s why I’ll bring groceries into play as soon as I close my computer and stop watching the news.
Depending on how the day goes, I might want to keep talking on 10 mg or crawl under my covers with 20 mg in my system. Only time can tell. But when it comes to sleep, rubbers never disappoint.
Make sure to vote and stay lifted today my friends!
