A wild patch of marijuana on my land

Lack of weed makes people do crazy things.

I know that it isn’t addictive like nicotine, hard drugs, or booze, but there is still a mental adjustment to be made when you go from smoking every day to going without.

I think the last couple of years of COVID and intermittent lockdowns have disrupted a lot of supply chains across the country. Many people had to go without for a while, thankfully I was not one of them. I was planning ahead for a calamity, so I have a small stash of cannabis plants deep in my property. For the same reason I keep a supply of bottled water and canned food, I always have some wild cannabis plants, for the day the dispensary closes down. Marijuana is called weed for a reason, because it will thrive under harsh conditions if given a chance. Bear in mind, this is not Blue Dream or Purple Haze I am talking about here, it is what is commonly known as “ditch weed” “crab grass” or “regs” around here. This kind of marijuana is not much more potent than smoking a cigar, but it tastes a lot better than a cigar! When I have my druthers then I get my stuff from the cannabis dispensary, but I always make sure my wild patch is going strong. It’s the cannabis I am saving for a rainy day, so to speak, although by :”rainy day” in this case I mean pandemic or collapse of civilization. If society falls, then getting high will be more important than ever.
