Bristol is best city because you can smoke weed in the street
BRISTOL is the UK’s best city to live in because cannabis is unofficially legal there, it has been claimed.
The south west’s leading stoner enclave topped The Times’s UK city survey for having an Amsterdam-like tolerance to pot that is weirdly never mentioned in the mainstream media.
32-year-old Stephen Malley, who recently moved to Bristol, said: “I first came here to visit my cousin, and the first thing I noticed was a couple sharing a skunk bifter outside Broadmead shopping centre.
“There were police around and everything, but they didn’t give a toss.
“Since moving down I’ve discovered that every other person in the city has a grow room, even middle-aged women with mum hair. It’s great.
“I’m not getting too much done though. Well I’ve got this idea for a really good dubstep track but not the means or motivation to realise it.
“Also I’ve gotten into circus skills and the sort of politics that you learn from graffiti.”
The Times also praised Bristol for having all its rich people live together on a big hill, in a weird kind of segregation that gives it “an interesting science fiction feel”.
