When I was a teenager, I basically lived at the mall, and kids today won’t understand that, not how crucial it used to be to the social order in high school.
Back then I was working at the mall, going to the arcade, the movie theater, 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, however COVID had been the death knell for several of the major malls in my state. I was pretty psyched to hear how the shopping mall here in town, that closed down several years ago, is re-opening, and it will have a crucial cannabis dispensary in it! This really hits myself and others in the feels, because this same mall is where I first tried cannabis. Back then some friends had gotten access to the roof and were hanging around drinking beers when 1 of them pulled out a bag of marijuana. It’s a fantastic memory, so the fact I will now be able to go and legally purchase my cannabis from the same establishment really appeals to me. But actually, I am delighted there wasn’t a cannabis dispensary back then, because weed being hard to get made it special. These afternoons I have a neighbor in Colorado who officially mails myself and others packages of the finest Sativa strains. I can’t tell you the last time I went one full day without using cannabis! If I had this kind of marijuana access as a teenager, I can guarantee that I would never have graduated from high school.
