To say that I have led a conventional life would be putting it mildly.
I have been a rule follower my entire life.
Having grown up in a strict religious household, I think I was terrified of ever thinking for myself. So it was a no brainer that I’d do the right thing, get an education, get a good job and settle down. That’s exactly what happened. Shoot, even in college, I was afraid of even smoking marijuana. The myths and misinformation I had been pounded with about cannabis over a lifetime were entrenched. I would literally walk out of a place if there were even pot brownies on the premises. Well all that straight living led me to hate my life and want to find out who I was. This led to a lot of self discovery. And thanks to the local cannabis spot, I’m continuing that work. This sort of thing may seem completely surreal to most. But for people like me, cannabis products have helped me get real about who I am and what I want. Some of the revelations have been tough. I’ve changed jobs and my wife and I have split. But my kids and I are closer now than we ever have because I am authentic and they get that. My eldest son, who is nearly 30, is dealing with similar feelings. He has found that certain indica strains for sale at the cannabis dispensary are really helping him determine what direction he wants to go. I’m thankful for the help I have received at the cannabis dispensary. And I’m no longer afraid to think for myself and live my own life.
