During my first few years of cannabis use, I would lust after the thought of living in a state with access to legal marijuana.
At the time, there had yet to be a single state in the country to pass a law legalizing recreational marijuana, and all legal states merely had medical marijuana legislation.
However, this all changed in just a handful of years when the first state in this nation finally legalized recreational marijuana use for adults 21 and up. My friends and I at the time were all making several plans to transfer out to this state once both of us had the funds and ability to do so. In reality, only 1 of my friends absolutely made it out there, and he left after graduating from law school. In the years since, over half of the country has passed both medical and recreational cannabis laws. It’s easier to find a state with some form of legal cannabis than to find 1 without. While my state is still far from legalizing recreational marijuana, both of us have had legal medical cannabis since the start of 2017. I got a card later that year and I have had 1 since. I started using CBD products particularally after my medical marijuana nurse commanded I try the cannabinoid to help with my several anxiety problems. To my joy, it worked wonders and I kept buying it. While CBD is sold in venues as diverse as grocery stores and gas stations, I’d much rather purchase my CBD and hemp products from my local medical cannabis dispensary. That way I recognize where the CBD is being sourced from and can be sure that it’s a potent product that won’t leave myself and others disappointed and feeling ripped off.
