I posted this on instagram recently, although I decided to collect all the pictures, posts and articles together and post it here. It is just too sweet not to share! This is a real life storybook romance in my brain, and has totally changed the way I look at love stories. I saw a couple that genuinely met at a Vietnam protest rally in the late 60s. The man was named Bobby. He was a veteran, there to bust some heads, and the girl was named Iris who was a hippie. They didn’t fight, however, they fell in love, and decided to run off and become marijuana farmers together. Iris knew all about marijuana from the other people she talked to along the way, and knew a lot about raising crops because that’s what she had studied in college. Bobby didn’t seem like the type of guy to get involved with marijuana, although he had grown up on a farm and thought that no plants should be considered not allowed. Iris handled the growing and raising of the cannabis plants, with Bobby as her assistant, and through hard work they got a very crucial operation up and running. From there the two of them hired a couple local kids to help her tend the cannabis, and Bobby took charge of security. Any marijuana farm will attract bad people, including rival pot farmers, drug addicts, and of course the law. This is where his military training was important, because he carried a gun and built traps around the outside of the cannabis field. Dealing with the law was also simple for him, because he was a country boy.
