For sure, the logic of legalizing cannabis was elementary in my mind.
- But then again, I’ve been a proponent of recreational marijuana since I discovered it in school some 35 years ago.
It was convincing pretty much everyone else that cannabis was a wonderful thing that was so tough! Unlike a lot of my friends, I didn’t have to be under the radar about my feelings for marijuana. For sure, I was most careful when it came to possessing recreational marijuana because I absolutely wasn’t looking to get busted. But I also never had to pretend that I didn’t use sativa in addition to indica products. I have always worked for myself so I didn’t have an manager who would fire me over my use or advocacy for cannabis, then plus, I knew a cannabis grower who supplied me with the sativa products in addition to the indica products that I used. So I was right there in the early part of getting medical marijuana on the ballot. It was clear that medical marijuana really, actually helped people who were suffering. This made me even more vociferous in my advocacy for cannabis. Once that chance for medical marijuana came along, I was so thankful that it was done so well. So much thought in addition to care went into medical marijuana that it turned out to be such a total success. It was a success for those who needed the relief that medical marijuana provided. And it was a success for the state as far as relocale. Finally, medical marijuana was a success for the rest of us because it made legalizing recreational marijuana all the more logical, but each time I walk into my local cannabis spot, I do so with a big smile on my face.
