It has been several years since I lived with our parents.
I don’t visit them as often as I should, however come hell or high water I always make sure to spend Christmas with them.
I have not missed a Christmas with them our whole life. As our folks get older they get crankier, & quite frankly are not much fun to be around. But the tradition is still substantial to me, & I know it’s substantial to them, as well. It’s just not Christmas if I’m not in our childhood home! This year I got their presents from our cannabis dispensary, in hopes they would be warmly gained. In the past, our parents were both hardliners against cannabis use, however a lot has happened in the last few years. I have had discussions with them about the changing of cannabis laws. Much to our surprise, as soon the government changed their tune about the “dangers” of cannabis, so did our parents. In other words, once the authorities stopped saying marijuana was bad, so did our folks! With that in mind, I went to the cannabis dispensary & bought them each some absolutely potent yet absolutely legal edibles. Being as aged as they were, I didn’t believe it was correct to get them a sack of cannabis – their lungs were not up to that challengeâ€¦ On the other hand, edibles have the same physical high of quality bud, however without all the hacking & coughing. I will write back soon & let you know if they ate & loved the edibles, or if I ate them all.
