I never thought I would say it, but I was happy the day they legalized medical marijuana.
I was always the one who made a fuss about marijuana in any capacity.
I thought it was a gateway drug to end up in the streets. I was sure that anyone who used marijuana would end up addicted to heroin, meth, or some other type of drug that would ultimately destroy their life. When I heard my sister was using marijuana, I all but disowned her. She never told me she was using medical marijuana; but I’m not sure it would have made a difference. She told me she was using medical marijuana for her pain. I knew she was in a lot of pain. She had throat cancer and heart disease. The marijuana would not cure the disease, but it could help her to be more comfortable. When they officially legalized medical marijuana, I was thrilled for my sister. She had already begun using marijuana, but she could now go to a medical marijuana dispensary and get her supplies. They did not tie her to just smoking. She could purchase gummies, drinks, and several types of edibles. She could even get vape pens that would help her to discreetly use her medical marijuana. I really was happy they legalized medical marijuana, but I’m hoping recreational marijuana isn’t legalized. I think that legalized medical marijuana is a good thing. To legalize recreational marijuana would open a whole new can of worms, and I don’t think many people are ready for that..
