When my daughter applied to college, we all thought she was headed to the University of California Los Angeles, or UCLA.
She applied to UC Riverside as well, but we were all surprised when she expressed interest in going to California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks.
It’s an exceptional private liberal arts college that has been the alma mater of hundreds of professional sports coaches. Not only that but the Hollywood film industry has shot countless films in the Thousand Oaks area, especially on the California Lutheran University campus. Two of the most famous films shot here include Spartacus and Lassie. Considering the beauty of the Conejo Valley, I am more than happy to visit my daughter in her dorm at California Lutheran University. Usually I’ll stop at one of the many cannabis dispensaries in Thousand Oaks before I arrive at the school. One of my favorite cannabis dispensaries of all time is right next to Conejo Creek North Park on E Janss Rd. There’s another cannabis store by the Conejo Ridge Open Space on the south end of the city. Lynn Ranch is another great neighborhood for cannabis stores, particularly if you like to eat at a great restaurant before going to the dispensary. While my wife and I have no plans on moving out of Riverside anytime soon, I can see myself retiring to a community like Thousand Oaks if we stay in California for the rest of our lives. At least there is such good access to cannabis in southern California even though there are a lot of taxes to pay for all recreational weed sales.
