CHICAGO — Local man Rob Klose insisted to anyone who would listen today that the Higher Plane dispensary in Logan Square was closed, despite neon-lit signs indicating otherwise and eyewitness reports that Klose had actually just pulled on the dispensary’s push door. “Yep, it’s totally closed today,” said Klose, blushing and refusing to make eye contact. “100% closed. I’d never seen anything so closed in my life. I told my friends there was no need to try opening the door again, because the place was 100% closed and that would be redundant. The place was closed, OK? It’s probably a bank holiday or something like that. I know some places close for Flag Day; it’s gotta be Flag Day in the owner’s home country. Or Christmas. Late Christmas. It’s probably a thing. Excuse me, I’m very busy.” While Klose’s friends went inside the well-lit and clearly open dispensary moments later, Klose himself tried to calm his anxiety at a nearby Applebee’s, only to make the same mistake all over again.

Speaking of absurdity, did you know there are still over 40,000 people locked up on nonviolent cannabis-related charges around the US? It’s time to let them out.
