I consider myself a generally congenial person. I certainly try not to start fights with people, always look to end them if they do happen, & generally live by the belief that to each their own… That is why my new roommate Sarah is so frustrating. She is always doing things that I can’t just look the other way on! We moved in together several months ago, & it has been pretty much one nightmare after the next. Nothing is ever cleaned, picked up, or even piled in the corner. Every room in the household is a total mess of her clothes & personal items. No matter what I say to her, she doesn’t do anything about it. The latest concern is due to her medical marijuana smoking. She has a prescription card & uses medical marijuana perfectly legally, however she enjoys to smoke in the household with no air flow… Windows are closed, fans are turned off, & vents are closed, all so she can smoke up the whole household. I have yelled until I am totally blue in the face with no effect, & then she has the nerve to tell me to just chill. She even told me that I should consider getting a prescription for medical cannabis to help me relax my nerves. What I feel that I could use is a restraining order that keeps her away from me for the rest of my entire life. I only have a couple of months to go on the lease, & hopefully, I will not suffocate from a lack of oxygen due to her medical cannabis smoke all over the household.
I’ve been around the family farm for the course of my whole life, plus I’m beyond happy to say that we’re finally doing something to make a great deal of money for a change. Ever since I was a young girl our farm has barely made any profit, plus usually did a lot worse than that. The farm has been in the family for well over 100 years, but since corporate farms started coming in plus buying up everything with government grants, there hasn’t been much room for small farms like ours! However, our luck is finally changing for the better with the legalization of recreational plus medical marijuana in our state. Now we are totally free to grow a sizable money maker crop plus finally make the farm financially sound. It’s not only for monetary reasons that I am thrilled about medical marijuana being legalized, as there are all kinds of positive benefits from this plant for humans plus other mammals as well. There is a substance known as CBD found in marijuana plus the oil extract of that has miraculous pain relieving properties separate from the addictive properties of other painkillers such as opiates. Medical cannabis is also excellent for giving people receiving chemo an appetite to eat. Those drug cocktails may work for getting rid of cancer, but they also wreck havoc on everything else in their path plus usually make patients incredibly nauseous all of the time. From an ethical point of view, I can’t see one reason not to have medical marijuana legal all over the world. It seriously seems rather deranged that it has been illegal for as long as it has. I’m ecstatic to be taking an active career in introducing this plant to our community in a legal way.
I was raised out in the middle of nowhere on an ancient farm that barely turned a profit. There was constantly something broken down, whether it was a plow, tractor, or my exhausting father! Dad liked to drink all of the time, or maybe he hated it however it was necessary I guess. It’s truly difficult to keep these things straight occasionally, although I know for sure that we were constantly broke plus our parents were seriously stressed out. I had to find a way out of that chaos, so I joined the military at 17 with my parent’s permission. I know they were as pleased to see me get out as I was, and ultimately I got out of the military plus ended up in a nice suburban household with a beautiful family. I was even able to provide some money to my parents to help them out in their last years! My mother passed on about six months ago plus I inherited the deed to that old farm with no idea of what to do with it. That was until I was approached by some promising young entrepreneur with substantial plans. She was going into the medical marijuana farming business plus wished to take on my parent’s ancient farm. She offered me way more than what it was worth so I happily took the deal. From what I have discovered, this lady was a single one of a select few to receive a permit to grow medical cannabis in the state. Medical cannabis was legalized roughly a year ago, plus this was the state’s way of trying to control its explosive growth. Good luck to this brilliant young lady plus her venture in the medical marijuana industry.
It’s seriously weird just how much things change throughout our lives. I’m an old lady now, however I can recall in my youth it was legitimately very different than today. I was merely a teenager while in the Civil Rights movement, so I can easily recall what it was like beforehand. I grew up in the South and saw things in my childhood that are totally unthinkable now. The wheels of society seem to press onward at a slow rate for a long time, and then jump to lightspeed for a small, brief, however vital moment. On a much smaller scale in terms of overall importance, I think we are seeing one of those moments right now. Medical marijuana has speedily picked up pace as far as legality goes, and it’s a trend that will continue until it’s legal all over the place. The reasons behind making cannabis illegal in the first place are legitimately dubious. It mostly has to do with William Randolph Hearst using false journalism to attack marijuana because he basically stood to lose a fortune because of it. That is a great deal in the past though, and brighter minds can easily see the uses medical cannabis has for those who are suffering in this world. Now we just need to get some solid agreements between the states that have legalized medical marijuana, and the federal government. This strikes directly at the heart of the law passed so long ago due to Hearst’s total lies and the time to repeal it is long overdue. Not only is there no medical social reason to keep medical marijuana illegal, however it basically laughs in the face of American freedoms.
The other day I faced a rather amusing situation. It actually happened between myself and one of our local law enforcement… I was on my way back to my lake household from my place of work and was admittedly going about 15 MPH over the legal limit. I was zoned out listening to music and didn’t even notice when I went zooming by the speed trap in the median and was taken by surprise when I seen the flashing lights directly behind me. I pulled over and she came up with the “do you know how fast you were going” spiel when she suddenly started sniffing like crazy. She leaned her head in the car. I knew right away what she was up to, so I decided to play along with the situation. I asked if there was a problem and she said my vehicle had a strong smell of marijuana. I agreed with her and just waited. Taken aback she asked if there was marijuana in the vehicle to which I responded that there was. Immediately she wanted me to step out of the vehicle and started radioing for some backup. That’s when I ruined her expected bust simply by letting her know I have a medical marijuana prescription… I have a medical cannabis prescription for some severe health problems, however since the law passed in my state not too long ago, people tend to not recall that medical marijuana is perfectly legal. I showed the cop my prescription card and she simply just scowled. I truly didn’t get out of the speeding ticket, however it was worth it for that little bit of fun.
It’s a little bit amusing how people who are charged with protecting the law are the same people who unknowingly break it by not knowing how to enforce it correctly! Let me attempt to explain. The other afternoon I was with a couple of friends on our way to the park to hang out for the afternoon. There is a beach and water to swim in, trails to walk on, and a host of other things to do in that place. It’s a wonderful time and we were super thrilled to be going on the adventure. Then we all noticed the flashing lights behind us; the police! My pal pulled over and the cop came up and went through the normal routine. Evidently, my pal forgot to use a turn signal. Then the cop stuck her head into the automobile and started sniffing really hard. “I can smell marijuana,” she said with a furrowed brow. My other friend in the back seat spoke up and informed the cop that it was her and it was perfectly legal because she had a prescription for medical marijuana. The cop was looking like my friend just spoke to him in Chinese. The next thing you know, we’re all outside of the automobile while it’s searched by the police K9s. My neighbor showed him the prescription and a card she carried that indicated she was perfectly legal to have medical marijuana, but the cop just didn’t seem to get it! Finally, her sergeant happened to be driving by and pulled up to see what was going on. After explaining the situation to him, she ordered the drug K9 away and let us go free. I sincerely hope she made the other cop learn the law a bit more closely.
I have been residing on the outskirts of the city since I moved here about a decade ago & it’s finally time for a change. I just landed a new task on the camera crew for a new series being shot for HBO & it comes with quite a bit of money. I made the decision to treat myself a little & got a nice place in one of the high rises downtown. It’s a bit on the pricey side & I could save a lot more money by not living there, however you only live once & I’ve always desired a place with a great view. I’ve been in the building for just a couple weeks & it is so bizarre living downtown than on the outskirts. The nightlife is totally wild, & then there are the shops & diners to check out as well. Overall, I think I made the right decision by coming down here, & hopefully will be able to parley this camera gig into an even better one further down the road. One incredibly interesting thing about the building I live in is the overwhelming smell. The whole building smells strongly of medical marijuana! There are some people smoking who use the cannabis for medical purposes, but I bet most folks are just sparking for the recreational side of it. It’s all good with me though. I honestly prefer the smell of marijuana & have no concern with someone who smokes it medically or recreationally. This is LA after all, & there are easily far worse things here than someone who enjoys hitting the medicinal ganja here & there.
Not too long ago I received a call from a good old buddy I hadn’t talked to in a few years. At first, I was legitimately thrilled. We hadn’t talked for such a long while, as well we had been close since school. However, my pleasure faded quickly when she told me the reason for her call. She was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. The medical professionals weren’t sure about her chances of survival as well as she was beginning chemo as well as radiation treatments that week… I heard all I had to as well as quickly went online to buy a plane ticket. I arrived in her area many weeks later as well as I could tell she was feeling a tad bit off. She looked seriously pale as well as didn’t have the normal drive she once had. Also, her whole place smelled strongly of marijuana. Both recreational as well as medical marijuana are legal in CA, so it wasn’t all that shocking. Of course, coming from the Midwest where not even medical cannabis is legal, it was an experience to grow used to. The medical sativa my dear friend was smoking was helping with her appetite, which in turn helped a lot to keep up her strength. That is crucially important when getting radiation as well as chemo. That stuff will wipe out everything good as well as terrible inside your body. That was quite a few weeks back as well as I’m still here with her to help her get through this. I toil remotely so it seriously is nothing for me to be in another state for a phase of time. I am going to stay with her for as long as she needs me. I might even smoke a little medical marijuana myself along the way.
I lived in the city for a majority of my life until just recently. My aunt, who would visit whenever she could, passed away and left me the deed to her farm. It’s way out in the midst of nowhere and at first, I was not sure what I was going to do with it. The farm has been in the family for a couple of generations, so I felt as though just selling it outright would be entirely wrong. Nobody in the family wished to have anything to do with it, so I was basically stuck with it. Then I went out there for a week and everything changed for me. Being in that old farm home overlooking all those acres of land actually impressed me. It had a profound effect on my entire being and I found myself not wanting to leave that place. I work remotely and brought my PC with me, so I made the decision to stay an extra week and explore… Walking through the countryside this one day I came across a section that reeked strongly of marijuana. I walked back into the woods a little ways and came across a massive cannabis farm. It was licensed to grow medical marijuana so there certainly wasn’t anything illegal going on (at least that’s what the sign on the building stated) so I had a look around and even talked to the farmer a little bit. Medical marijuana is a major business now and this girl decided to strike while the iron was hot… Good for her, as medical marijuana is making a positive difference in the lives of many people.
I was raised in the rural farmlands of the Midwest & by the time I graduated High School, I couldn’t get out of there quick enough. No matter what it would be the same boring routine of getting up, working on the farm, going to school, coming back to our household to labor more on the farm, homework, & then off to bed. It never seemed to change and it was surely a driving force in the height of my distaste for the farm lifestyle & country life. When I was finished with high school, I got myself accepted to a community university near a sizable town just so I could get away from my past life. I was majoring in finance but seriously wanted nothing to do with running numbers for a living, the goal was to start a new life. I ended up getting a condo downtown & was in awe of the yearly routines. One thing that struck me as bizarre at first was the marijuana stink that seemed to spread throughout our entire building. I found out later that the culprit was my old buddy John who had a prescription for medical marijuana! We had smoked cannabis back in high school every now and then, but it was regularly illegal & both of us had to hide our activities. Nowadays people like John can spark up whenever & wherever they wish with no fear of retribution. However, the reason John uses medical cannabis is due to having MS, so the tradeoff isn’t honestly worth it, but at least he is able to get some relief & make our building have a pleasant aroma in the process.
