When I was a kid in college, recreational marijuana was almost a staple of the average college kid’s life.
I just didn’t happen to be the typical college kid in the late 60’s and early 70’s.
No, I was a scholarship kid who had worked so hard to get to college on a basically free ride. That was the only way college was going to happen for me. My parents didn’t have any money and weren’t even big believers in higher education. With my scholarships on the line, I felt it best to steer clear of the recreational marijuana that was everywhere. Knowing what I know now, all these years later, I can understand my perspective but I might do it differently were I to have the chance. But that doesn’t happen in reality as time appears to be linear. So now that I’m almost 70, I’m learning all about cannabis and how lovely sativa and indica products can be. When I retired, my wife and I moved to a state where both medical marijuana and recreational marijuana are both legal. I was curious to try recreational marijuana and my wife was eager to use it again. She had enjoyed cannabis products in college and after we got married. But once the kids came, she sort of hung it up. So we both decided to take a trip to the local cannabis spot. And boy, are we ever glad we did. I can’t believe how much I am enjoying the mellow feeling I get with the cannabis edibles I’m now getting at the cannabis dispensary.
