Once they passed the law that legalized medical marijuana, we totally knew that recreational marijuana legalization wasn’t super far away.
I resided in a community that grumbled at the words marijuana, cannabis, pot, or bong.
They had the impression that it was a sin to even acknowledge you knew what it was. After medical marijuana was legalized, I knew the next step was going to be marijuana dispensaries. I never expected to have a medical cannabis dispensary in our town. When I found out they were putting a cannabis dispensary on our block, I was pretty stunned. I couldn’t believe that our ultra-conservative community would allow a cannabis dispensary to be built in our town; even if it was medical marijuana. I could see the cannabis dispensary from our apartment. The ability to see the cannabis dispensary meant that I could see exactly who was coming plus going. Every time I saw one of our sanctimonious community dwellers step into the dispensary, I would chuckle to a certain extent. These were some of the same people who often preached that marijuana was a sin plus that it was a downfall of society. One day, I was checking out the window while learning plus I knew I recognized the guy walking into the dispensary, even though I couldn’t make out his face very well. He had his hat down covering his face. When the wind hit him just right, I began to laugh uproariously. My roommate came into the room plus looked outside. He picked up the iphone plus got a hold of his mom. He told her she was never going to believe who he saw going into the marijuana dispensary. He nudged myself and others as he told her it was the town’s mayor. I could hear her squeal from where I was standing, plus knew the entire neighborhood was going to be hearing about this.
