Whenever we choose to have family reunions I typically look for Uncle Mike.
He is the life of any get-together he attends.
Otherwise, the reunions are truly boring. All of us have a great deal of medical professionals and bankers in the family, and all that stuff bores me significantly! Uncle Mike actually is the black sheep of the family, and the only one of my extended family who I enjoy being around. Two years ago I spoke to him at a reunion, and he asked if I was 18 just yet. I had just turned 18, and so he decided to hand me a joint of quality cannabis, and said “happy birthday.” It turns out that Uncle Mike was a black sheep because he was a regular cannabis farmer. My family has typically been completely straight-laced, so it’s actually shocking that they acted basically like growing marijuana was a horrible sin. After that, Uncle Mike and I got along relatively well, but I never purchased any cannabis from him because I didn’t want to get him in trouble with the family. I have been wondering how the new legalization of medical marijuana will impact the way the family thinks of him. After all, growing cannabis is no longer illegal, so does that mean the family won’t decide to shun him anymore? I actually believe they are all hypocrites, slamming beers and shots while condemning the use of cannabis plants. It’s superb to avoid using marijuana if you don’t love it, but to hold it against a member of your own family seems ridiculous to me.
