When you grow up in a small country town, there are not a lot of things to do as a teen.
When your father is the local head of police, there are even fewer things to do! It was just a few years back that dad caught myself and friends smoking weed out back.
Dad let them all go with a warning, plus then when he was alone with me I got a stern warning. Dad said he better not catch me smoking marijuana again. He would punish my friends for it. Dad knew I wasn’t afraid of him, but that my friends were, plus that was my weak spot. To protect them, I stayed away from cannabis plus all other illegal substances for almost 5 years. Now things have changed, plus there is a legal cannabis dispensary within driving distance, so I am ready to start smoking again! If I buy cannabis legally through a store, my dad can’t use the law to punish my friends because they have nothing to do with it. Most of my friends have gone away to college anyway, which means they already have access to cannabis on campus. Since everyone else is having a good time, I am stoked to take my first visit to the cannabis dispensary. I adore my dad, plus I know that he has the best intentions for me, but just like dad loves beer, I love having some marijuana to relax after a long afternoon. Now that cannabis has been made legal, my dad can’t stop myself and others from smoking any more.
