It’s funny how you wait so long something to happen and then it does. But most of the time, at least in my life, when that thing finally does happen, it’s not at all like you thought it would be. However, when they finally legalized recreational marijuana, it was even better than I thought it would be. Once it was clear that medical marijuana was so clearly a success in our state, the recreational marijuana legalization was primed and ready. I got a first hand look at some of the local impact once the cannabis laws were changed. I live not far from a cannabis grower. For decades, this person had been a cannabis grower but very much under the radar. This cannabis grower was into the advancement of cannabis for every reason but money. Actually, I’m not sure the guy ever even charged for his cannabis products. He gave most of it away I think. I was one of the lucky recipients and he made my experience with cancer so much more manageable. This cannabis grower had different indica strains as well as sativa strains he had purposefully grown for cancer patients. It was one of the things that pulled me through and got me to remission. That was years ago and now this cannabis grower has been able to scale up his operation and quit his day job as a chemist. Now, so many more people will be able to benefit from his incredible cannabis products. Sometimes the law does work. I’m just thankful we all finally came to our senses when it comes to marijuana.
