When I mention using recreational marijuana to people that I have just met, they turn up their nose and act as if I am talking about an illicit drug.
It’s perfectly and totally socially acceptable for people to drink beer or alcohol. Some people start drinking beer or alcohol at 10:00 in the morning and they drink all day. If you are retired, there is no reason not to start drinking as soon as you wake up. Some people will say that it is 5:00 somewhere. There is beer and alcohol available everywhere that people go. In the place where I live, people can buy beer or alcohol in the grocery store, supermarket, and even the gas station. It’s totally easy to get drunk as long as you have an id. It’s absolutely legal to get high in the state as well if you are over the age of 21. Recreational marijuana was legalized 6 years ago. People still look down on others that use recreational marijuana daily. When I mention using recreational marijuana to people that I have just met, they turn up their nose and act as if I am talking about an illicit drug. I don’t think of marijuana as anything more than a cigarette, glass of wine, or beer. I use recreational marijuana in the afternoon to relax just the same as someone does with fear. I don’t think there is any way that we can possibly move forward and legalize marijuana and all 50 states until it is socially acceptable and accepted as a normal way to relax at the end of the day. I’m sure there was probably a time when people didn’t think that cigarettes were acceptable either, but now it is no big deal.
