My cousin Luke and I have been as thick as thieves since we were kids.
I used to go stay on his ranch every summer back then.
As teenagers we stayed close, but grew apart as you would expect. Now that we are in our mid-20s we want to reconnect, so Luke decided to drive out to stay with me for a few days and see the city. This was a real “city mouse and country mouse” situation, but we both had some surprises for the other one. For him, I took him to a cannabis dispensary, something he had heard about but never seen in person before. I tell you, Luke was like a kid in a candy store, and spent most of his travel budget on cannabis and edibles right away! It turns out that Luke also had a surprise for me, a selection of buds from his own personal patch of cannabis plants. He had been working these same cannabis strains for a couple of years now, and they were sticky, purple, and hairy. I would go so far as to say it was the potent marijuana I have ever smoked, and way tastier than anything we got at the dispensary. Luke was used to the stuff though, it was his personal cannabis so that was all he smoked and had developed a tolerance. He liked getting a wider variety of cannabis, and I was deeply in love with the stuff he grew. We quickly worked out details for a future cannabis exchange program to send weed between us.
