When I was 15 my mother found a box of my marijuana stuff.
I had cannabis flower and a bong hidden under my bed.
I remember she ripped me a new one and threw all my stuff away. At that time cannabis was considered the worst drug for kids to get into. She told me how I was going to turn into a drug addict and my life would be a mess. Well fast forward over ten years later and now cannabis is legal in our state. The medical wonders of cannabis have been brought to light. My mother is going through menopause and it is tough on her. The hot flashes and the lack of sleep are killing her. I did some research and found that cannabis actually can help. Cannabis is known to reduce the amount of hot flashes and help a person to relax at night for sleep. I talked to my mother about it and she was more than willing to try. We have come so far. She went from telling me cannabis is the worst thing ever to saying that she would literally smoke anything to make her menopausal symptoms better. Since medical and recreational cannabis is legal, the two of us were able to walk right in the dispensary. The budtender was great at finding what product would work best for my mother. He even got her an oil that she can just put in her tea at night rather than smoke it. It definitely makes my mother feel more comfortable to hide the cannabis.
