Wicked Lettuce Smoke Shop in downtown Madison Maine will hold a Chili and Dessert cookoff this weekend.

The times they are a changing.

4 20 is coming up next week, and you don’t have to be Willie Nelson to know that the day is growing in popularity around the country. And although I’m not a weed guy, I will never forget the conversation I had with my late father a few years before he passed away. He was singing the praises to me about Medical Marijuana and how it helped him sleep through the night and ease the pain of his arthritic body.  Smiling at him, I suggested that it’s mostly the kid telling the father about marijuana not the reverse. If it helps anyone medically, I’m all for it.

Wicked Lettuce Smoke Shop located in downtown Madison, Maine is a smoke shop, medical marijuana dispensary and a gift shop. This Saturday the 17th, they will host their 3rd 4 20 celebration. And this year for the first time will be hosting a Dynamite and Dessert Cookoff. If you make a great bowl of chili or bake the best pie, cookies or cakes they would like you enter the cookoff. First, this is non infused chili and desserts. The judging of entries will take place between 1 and 3pm at the Wicked Lettuce store in downtown Madison

You do need to reach out to the store to let them know you’ll be entering the non infused chili part or the non infused dessert part of their contest.

Best to all with the baking. And with getting baked.
