Weed Dating is The New Speed Dating
In Idaho, Vermont, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio and Wisconsin singles in search of love are ditching the bar for the farm. "Weed Dating" events have (pun fully intended) cropped up across the country as a new way for singles to (pun fully intended) plant the seeds of interest that will eventually (just assume all of the puns from hereon out are intended) blossom into love.
The Associated Press reports that the Earthly Delights Farm in Idaho recently held a weed dating event where singles met while working together in the fields. More than 40 men and women showed up for this year's weed dating in June. Each of the women was assigned to a specific row. The women were taught how to identify a weed versus a valued crop (hey, it is kind of like being in a bar) and they taught the men how to weed. Each woman was given a new man to harvest ever three minutes.
"What I find is if you go to bars, you don't really know what people's interests are," said one male weed dater. "You can't really walk into a bar and complain about climate change or peak oil without having people look at you weird. That would probably scare off a lot of people."
Yeah, complaining about peak oil is really more of a second date topic, pal.
But who knows? A few years from now Weed Dating could produce a few children of the corn.
