When I was a child in university, recreational marijuana was almost a staple of the average university kid’s life.
I just didn’t happen to be the proper university child in the late 60’s and early 70’s.
No, I was a scholarship child who had worked so difficult to get to university on a basically free ride. That was the only way university was going to happen for me. My parents didn’t have any money and weren’t even massive 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 think now, all these years later, I can understand my perspective although 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 appreciated cannabis products in university 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 think how much I am enjoying the mellow feeling I get with the cannabis edibles I’m now getting at the cannabis dispensary.
