My friends and I went to the coast for a week during spring break.
While we were there, Ben decided to buy some cannabis supplies from a recreational dispensary.
Ben was the only one in the group that is old enough to buy legal recreational marijuana, but the rest of us were close. Ben went to the shop alone, because everyone in the store had to show valid ID before entering the building. I thought it was a terrible idea to get weed while we were on vacation, and I was worried that my friend would get into trouble if we got caught. My friends gave Ben a list of items and cash and he left for the shop. He took a cab to the pot shop and spent $200 on marijuana supplies like vape pens, pre rolled marijuana cigarettes and edible treats. Ben and the guys started out with some edible gummy tablets. They didn’t feel much after ten or fifteen minutes, so they took another dose. Then they started smoking the pre-roll. I’m so glad that I didn’t smoke any cannabis or take any edibles, because everyone was high. They were being loud and obnoxious. Twice I had to quiet them down when the hotel manager came knocking on the door. I didn’t want to get kicked out of the hotel. We would have been forced to sleep on the street. It wasn’t a fun experience for me that night and I was glad they were more controlled the rest of the week. They really underestimated the power of the edibles.
