If I moved out of the state, my mom would have to go to a nursing home or a medical facility.
Marijuana is a very popular recreational drug that has been legalized in many countries around the world. A handful of states in this country allow recreational marijuana use. It’s hard to live in a state that does not allow recreational marijuana, especially when I am surrounded by several states that do. I can cross the border in 20 minutes and find a legal recreational marijuana shop, but it is illegal to bring the medicine across state lines. I’ve done this a couple of times and I am nervous every time I make the drive. Unfortunately, recreational marijuana is not legal here yet and the price for medical marijuana is twice as much. I got a medical marijuana card about 6 months ago. I can legally access cannabis, but I have to spend a fortune. I have thought about moving to another state permanently, but my mom requires full-time care. I am the only person that can take care of my mom. If I moved out of the state, my mom would have to go to a nursing home or a medical facility. I’m not ready to put my mom in a home just so I can move to a legal state. I tried to talk my mom into moving with me, but she has lived here most of her life and she feels like this is home. She wants to die in a familiar place surrounded by all of her friends. I can’t blame her for the way that she feels and I want her to be happy.
