The DMV (DC, Maryland and Virginia) is excited for the Memorial Day weekend this year. Cookouts, fun vibes with friends and family, and Monday off for most government and corporate workers. This is a perfect weekend to also enjoy the outdoors with your favorite strains of weed.

5.) National Memorial Day Parade Monday, May 30, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Constitution Avenue from 7th Street NW to 17th Street NW, Washington, D.C.
The nation’s largest Memorial Day parade is back in full force after two years, and the public is invited to pay tribute to military members who made the ultimate sacrifice.

It’s free and open to the public. Organizers suggest attendees should arrive early and consider bringing a lawn chair. The closest Metro station is National Archives/Penn Quarter/Navy Memorial, organizers say.
These are just a few of the many things that will be going on throughout the weekend. We recommend sativa strains White Buffalo and Tropicana Cherry. Both strains have a flavorful taste and great aroma. They also will keep you energetic and social so that you wont feel weighed you down. Make sure to try these strains while they are hot so you can give us all the tea on Tuesday.
