I finally got to visit a cannabis dispensary not so long ago, which may not sound like a big deal to you however to myself and others it was everything to me! You see, our dad is a cop, & not only that… but the sheriff for our small town.
When I was 16 the guy caught myself and others smoking weed in the backyard, & came down on myself and others like a ton of bricks.
My dad took our weed, destroyed it, & demanded I tell him where I got it. Obviously I am no snitch, which was actually respected, so he just made myself and others a deal. Dad would let the matter go, however if I was ever caught with cannabis again he would start arresting our friends to punish me. I had no choice however to quickly walk away from marijuana for a few years… until recently, and now that there is a brand new legal cannabis dispensary in the next town, I can start going there to receive our favorite products. I am finally free to smoke cannabis as much as I want, because it came from a completely legal supplier & our dad can’t punish them like he could have punished our young, drug dealing friends. Dad can still kick myself and others out of the house, however I don’t recognize the family will. In the year 2022 what sort of parent would kick out their kid for obtaining legal cannabis? Maybe in the 1950s that kind of thing made sense, however smoking cannabis has been normalized so much it doesn’t seem worse than smoking tobacco… Dad tried to protect everyone from cannabis, however all that did was make myself and others much more curious about doing it.
