I was 43 years old when I first tried recreational marijunana.
That’s a long time to wait before finding out what all the fuss was about. When I was in my twenties, just about everyone I knew or hung out with used cannabis to some degree. But when I was in college, I was so determined to get good grades in order to keep my scholarships that I chose to refrain from partying. I might have had like a dozen drinks the whole time I was at university. So using marijuana was pretty much out of the question. That was also due to be raised with all kinds of false and misleading information about cannabis and cannabis products. That sort of stuff really does seep into a subconscious. Once I had a career and we started a family, I was just to deep into all of that to even consider using sativa or indica or any sort of cannabis product. However, that all changed recently when I visited an old college friend. She lives in a region where the laws are such that both medical marijuana and recreational marijuana are legal. She’s been using THC for almost 25 years. When she wanted to pop down to the local cannabis spot, I tagged along. The local cannabis spot was incredible. It was like walking into a fine foods store except there was marijuana for sale. She bought me a yummy pot brownie. The next day, we went to a beautiful spot for an all afternoon picnic. And wow, that was amazing. I sampled the pot brownie and now I’m fully understanding what all the buzz is about when it comes to marijuana.
