When I entered retirement, I did more than just leave the supplier I spent my adult life helping to create.
Once that long chapter of my life was over, I decided to just entirely reinvent my whole life. But I must say I was surprised at how much I enjoyed cannabis and cannabis products. Prior to my retirement, I’d been single for more than a decade. My ex-wife and I sort of understood that it was over once the kids were going off to college. Thankfully, we’d always been very good to each other and great partners so the end, while sad, was amicable. I’m thankful she has found happiness. For me, it was all work. Even in college, when my friends were hanging out smoking recreational marijuana, I was in the library. I knew that I wanted to be my own boss or at least an investor in a supplier so I entirely applied myself during school. And that supplier was rather successful. So when I sold my end and moved on, I entirely moved on. The town where I live now is a region where both recreational marijuana and medicinal cannabis are legal. I knew nobody but a few old supplier contacts that I played basketball and hockey with. That motivated me to try new things. One of those things was a trip to the local cannabis dispensary. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. And I found out! The staff at the cannabis dispensary treated me to a sampling of some cannabis products and I met a nice lady at yoga who showed me the ropes. I have to admit, I sure wish that recreational marijuana had been legal much sooner because I totally feel the benefits of cannabis.
