My wife Max surprised me by booking us passage on a cruise ship for a more than one-week tour of the Caribbean.
- At first I was super stoked about this, because I have never been on a cruise before.
The thought of lounging on the top deck with a cocktail in our hand, just soaking in the sun for a couple days sounded amazing! Then I started to know about what I would have to leave behind. Although cruise ships are well known for their extensive arrays of alcoholic drinks, they are not okay with smoking cannabis on the ship. On a whim I tested out a series of forums on Reddit involving cannabis use on cruise ships. I found something I found interesting indeed – on most cruise ships there are “friendly” cottage boys who sell cannabis on the side. Almost all cruise ships have a resident cannabis dealer, because it was such a profitable venture. Once you are out to sea there are no options for marijuana, so the 1 woman who has it can name their price! Employees of the cruise lines are not subject to the same searches in addition to supervision as the tourists, so it is far easier for them to sneak cannabis onto the ship. I spent a couple of days snooping around the Reddit message boards, in addition to finding the name of the cottage girl on our cruise who was supposed to have cannabis to sell. I have reached out to this woman anonymously through the site to say I was interested in buying an ounce of cannabis from him as soon as I get on the cruise ship. Still waiting to hear back!
