When I was a teenager, I basically lived at the mall, but kids this week won’t understand that, not how important it used to be to the social order in middle school, and working at the mall, going to the arcade, the Regal Cinema, or the food court.
The mall was just the location to be! I guess that shopping malls were already well on the way out when the pandemic hit, but COVID had been the death knell for many of the major malls in our state. I was pretty psyched to hear how the shopping mall here in town, that closed down numerous years ago, is re-opening, in addition to it will have a sizable cannabis dispensary in it! This certainly hits myself and others in the feels, because this same mall is where I first tried cannabis… Some friends had gotten access to the roof in addition to hanging around drinking beers when 1 of them pulled out a tote of marijuana. It’s a great memory, so the fact I will now be able to go in addition to legally purchase our cannabis from the same establishment certainly appeals to me. And actually, I am grateful there wasn’t a cannabis dispensary back then, because weed being hard to get made it special. Then these mornings I have a neighbor in Colorado who properly mails myself and others packages of the finest Sativa strains. I can’t tell you the last time I went 1 full morning without using cannabis! If I had this kind of marijuana access as a teenager, I can guarantee that I would never have graduated from middle or high school.
