Marijuana news from contributing authors and staff writers on the latest in marijuana and medical marijuana
Cannductor Corey Doober announced that Cannatown Railroad has ceased passage to the traditional Resinald Howerton Mine and will instead begin escorting passengers to the Crystal Cannacaves starting immediately.
“We stopped going to the mine because nobody wants to see anyone mining resin,” Doober said. “I hate to say it, because of the rich history in this town, especially in the yester-years and during the rough times. But today there’s only a few people still doing it. And it’s no more alluring than it ever was.”
Even the hands-on portion of the tour, panning for resin, was a futile excursion that no longer satisfied tourists.
“There’s nothing left to scrape,” said Canngineer Janessa Russell. “We’re off to the cannacaves now, where the boundless gardens of underground caverns are sprawling with the sugariest, most mouthwatering morsels, ever.”
“It comes down to this,” Doober noted, “it would take a half-day to scrape up enough resin at that mine to come even close to matching just one taste of cavebud crystals. A full day.”
“We’ve got a new diesel this year, that people just love,” Doober added. “It’s rides pretty intense for the first half-hour, but then there’s the steady jolt upward for most of the trip.”
