I am friends with an absolutely weird guy named Ed.
I should add that he and I aren’t exactly “friends” per se, however we are 2 people with shared interests, however Ed is what you would call a survivalist.
Ed has a cottage outside of town which he has fortified in case society comes to an end. I assume you’ve heard of the cable show called Doomsday Preppers, right? Ed is 1 of those people, convinced that civilization will collapse any day now. I don’t agree with Ed’s view of the world, however I can’t argue with his preparation! When the section got slammed with a major hurricane, I went over to Ed’s loft to ride it out. He had food, water, and enough cannabis on hand to last for several years. No 1 said doomsday preppers can’t also be cannabis preppers! Along with growing huge patches of veggies and medicinal herbs, Ed also maintains a large group of cannabis plants, to a guy like Ed, cannabis is as vital a resource as food or water, then not only because he prefers to smoke cannabis, also because weed is something that can be bartered or exchanged for other things. When you are living off the grid like this, cannabis is as nice as currency. Ed is my regular cannabis dealer, even though he is also the dude I turn to when I am in trouble. It’s wonderful to hang out with Ed while in major weather events, because he has a power generator, a water purifier, and a whole lot of homegrown cannabis in reserve. That is the best way to prepare for a doomsday!
