AUBURN, Maine — There was nothing unusual about the check-in process at Maine Greenyards. There were, however, a few tell-tale signs that this was not like any other bed and breakfast I’d previously visited.
The first thing I noticed was the smell in the air, and it was decidedly not lavender potpourri. The heavy, fragrant aroma reminded me of the time my aunt joined a commune in Western Massachusetts and my family dropped by for a visit. I was 4 years old at the time, and I think I got high off the second hand purple haze.
That smell informed me that Mary Jane was a permanent guest at Maine Greenyards (slogan: The way leaf should be). If you’re not good with innuendo, I’m trying to tell you that this bed and breakfast is actually a bud and breakfast. It’s cannabis-themed lodging. I’m talking about pot, marijuana, Satan’s salad, sticky icky, or treefers. Whatever the kids are calling it these days.
