It’s nice that the laws changed, but ultimately it didn’t matter to me.
I have been smoking weed for over twenty years, and I never expected it to be legal.
I just didn’t care. I liked getting high, and the laws against it never deterred me, not even when I was a sophomore in high school! I get stoned every single day, usually multiple times a day, and it doesn’t matter to me what the laws are. The best part about legalization is that I have more options than I did before. Not only do we have a cannabis dispensary in town, but we have three of them! It’s called “being spoiled for choice” because I can bargain-hunt and look for exotic new cannabis products at any of these shops. This is an amazing way to live, because in the past I never had any real options when it came to buying marijuana. My pot dealer only ever had one strain at a time, so I could take it or leave it. Not only do I have a lot more to choose from, but all of these cannabis products are of a much superior quality than what I used to buy. Looking back I was mostly smoking ditch weed, but I didn’t have enough experience with quality cannabis to know the difference. As much as I want to complain about the prices at the cannabis dispensary, there is no questioning that it is the best possible weed. I’d rather pay more money for better marijuana than keep on smoking the cheap stuff.
