Who says an old dog can learn new tricks.
Well, this old dog is certainly learning some great new things about life.
And things that I thought I would never engage in. However, when I retired and moved to a state where they have marijuana business, I wanted to learn more about cannabis. Actually, I always have wanted to try recreational marijuana. But for one reason after another, I just didn’t. When I was young and in college, recreational marijuana was fairly prevalent among my peers. However, I was raised a pretty straight arrow and had bought into all the myths and fears regarding cannabis. Then, I fell in love with a woman who was completely against anything like recreational marijuana. In fact, in the 30 plus years I was married to her, I don’t think she even had a drink. This perspective is what informed pretty much the rest of my adult life. And it’s not that I’m complaining. I had a wonderful family life and we raised some great kids. Once my wife passed away at a relatively young age, I truly, truly missed her. However, I got on with my life and part of that was moving to a new state for retirement. Lo and behold, where I live there is recreational marijuana for sale. A friend of mine and I decided to take a trip down to the cannabis dispensary to find out what it was all about. The folks there couldn’t have been more kind or accommodating. They gave me all sorts of information and asked me a lot of questions. Finally, they suggested a hybrid strain and I bought a sample. The nice thing is that I don’t have to smoke it. Instead, I was able to enjoy my first cannabis experience with an edible.
