When I moved into the huge city, there was a particular amount of culture shock that came with it.
I actually was born and raised on a farm, so far out in the sticks that it took almost a whole hour just to get to the nearest Walmart! Where I live currently I have many Walmarts all within walking distance… As you might imagine, weed was not straight-forward to come by in the country.
Anyone that had the desire to have a steady supply of cannabis needed to grow it themselves. I tried my hand at growing marijuana plants more than once, although I never had any real success. In the city there are an abundance of cannabis dispensaries, so acquiring weed is more simple than it ever has been for me. At the same time, the cost is often prohibitive, and simply paying rent in the city is financially crippling, so I don’t have a ton of currency left over to spend at the cannabis dispensary. The one downside of residing here is that out in the country I could grow as many cannabis plants as I preferred and no one would ever notice… My household doesn’t have much space, which makes growing marijuana much more difficult. Also there is the complication with the power consumption, because growing cannabis inside a household causes a spike in utility usage. For some reason it is legal to buy cannabis at the dispensary, yet still illegal to grow it yourself. It is a bizarre feeling, to have straight-forward access to all the cannabis I could ever want, although I just can’t afford to even purchase it!
