To recognize that I lived long enough to see the access of legal cannabis is pretty thrilling.
And it’s not because I’m just so grateful to be stoned all day.
That’s far from our relationship with marijuana. Cannabis products are an essential area of our life but it goes deeper than that. There is something about sativa and indica strains that have healed and supported human beings for like three thoUSnd years. There is an undeniable connection to sativa strains, in particular, for me. Cannabis products enhance, heal, shift and hone so much of our experience. And it doesn’t take much at all. But for most of our adult life, I had to hide that area of our life. Not only did I have to fly under the radar with our recreational marijuana use, it was illegal. Imagine that, a plant that grows so absolutely that it’s called a weed is also called an illegal drug. We should just all settle on calling cannabis products a gift from mother nature as far as I’m worried. Thankfully, our culture has shifted a bit to see the absurdity of selling liquor but criminalizing cannabis products. And of course, money is area of the whole game as well. I’m not naive enough to think that if there wasn’t a tax relocation angle mixed with some corporate greed, those laws would have never changed. But that’s the way it is. I’m just going to be thankful that I can access the sativa and indica products that are pressing to myself and others and the way I live our life.
