Man, you don’t know how nice you have it til you don’t.
I’m not complaining as much as I’m just making a general observation.
Yet, I’m surprised at just how abruptly I have started taking legal medical marijuana and legal recreational marijuana for granted. It wasn’t long ago that I was doing everything I could do in a volunteer effort to get people to vote to legalize medical marijuana. The efforts of those states out west that changed everything when it came to marijuana laws were the red print for us in our state. We knew that all of us could appeal to both those who wanted to help manage the suffering of so many with medical marijuana and the money end. The money end was the those in power who wouldn’t be able to pass up such a pressing tax replace windfall from medical marijuana. Our efforts and those of the voters paid off. And just a few years later, after the success of medical marijuana, all of us had recreational marijuana users get access to a cannabis dispensary. I could hardly assume it. Now, I’m living in another state temporarily and can’t make myself and others trips to the local cannabis spot and it just feels so weird. It’s amazing how abruptly I went from incredulous about access to legal cannabis products to it being a routine in our life. And while I miss shopping for marijuana for sale, it’s the kindness and friendships that I miss more at the local cannabis spot. But I’ll be back soon and the cannabis dispensary will be our first stop.
