It has been more than nine years since I lived with our parents.
I don’t visit them as often as I should, but 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 crucial to me, & I suppose it’s crucial 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 acquired. In the past, our parents were both hardliners against cannabis use, but a lot has happened in the last few years. I have had discussions with them about the decreasing 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 very potent yet very legal edibles. Being as old as they were, I didn’t guess it was common to get them a sack of cannabis – their lungs were not up to that challenge, then on the other hand, edibles have the same physical high of quality bud, but without all the hacking & coughing. I will write back soon & let you suppose if they ate & enjoyed the edibles, or if I ate them all.
