Despite going to a fairly left leaning liberal arts college, I had never tried marijuana until recently.
You’d think that maybe I just prefer alcohol, but the truth is that I’ve never been much of a fan of substances, especially ones that are notoriously intoxicating. I couldn’t even imagine taking something like LSD or mescaline, let alone smoking some of the strong marijuana that is available today. My friends tell me that researchers are constantly breeding strains with higher quantities of THC compared to the cannabis readily available 10 to 20 years ago. Even the cannabis from that time period was significantly stronger than what my parents were used to back in the 1960s and 1970s. I don’t know what made me decide I wanted to try marijuana for the first time after reaching 30 years old. I was at one of my friends’ houses and he told me that he was getting ready to make an order through the legal weed store. I thought he’d have to leave to go pick up the order, but he explained how they have a delivery service now for purchasing cannabis products. After he made the order online, the delivery driver was at his door within two hours with all of the products my friend had ordered. I decided I’d try cannabis at last after having every person around me vouch for it the past three decades. I’m happy that I did, because I have never felt so much mental relief in my entire life. I feel stupid now for shying away from this amazing substance. And I owe it all to that one cannabis delivery service that my friend uses.
