It was the original smoke spot. One of the earliest places of congregation on Shawmut Peninsula (Boston Proper) Shipments were finally coming in. Seeds and buds from India, and hemp plants for rope and textiles from Russia, once they kicked the crown out of Dorchester with those cannons Boss Knox had pulled through the night, East from New York, and of course with mighty hemp ropes.

The Boston Common is now somewhat unrecognizable though, from how it would have looked at one of those dank colonial era blunt sessions. The colonists were avid tobacco smokers so obviously they invented blunts.

The Common has been home to MassCann's annual Freedom Rally in September.BFR2018-Flyer.png

If you go early on any given morning outside of the tundra season, you can learn Tai Chi from one the many local and geriatric practitioners. In modern times, the common has been a popular destination for time-honored activities such as ice skating, rabid squirrel safaris, finding discount area college t-shirts from one the many pop up vendors that also sell exceedingly Terpy lemonade in the summer, and of course, whatever it is the drunks do all day.

Over the years, and as a sort of rite of passage, many of the area teens have often congregated here to smoke weed and to this day smells fragrant AF. weedman.png

Obviously it’s a very historical place to do a very historical thing.

......as it turns out, the Boston Massacre started from a beef between colonists and soldiers at a nearby Rope Walk (cordage factory), where many of both groups were known to have often worked.
