A month later she gave me a special Christmas present, a book called A Home Grower’s Guide to Cannabis Plants
Every year my Aunt Jenny got a book for the holidays. She was an absolutely sweet woman, and firmly believed that books were the best gift for everyone. Perhaps that had something to do with her being a librarian. One Thanksgiving when I was a teenager Aunt Jenny caught me smoking a joint on the back porch late at night. She didn’t say a word to me, or to my parents, and I thought she forgot about it. A month later she gave me a special Christmas present, a book called A Home Grower’s Guide to Cannabis Plants. Aunt Jenny was a big command of education, and in her estimation me reading about botany was a nice reason to start growing cannabis, I never saw her smoke cannabis herself, however she absolutely thought that it should be legalized, and by giving me the information to grow my own marijuana plants she was helping me out in a few different ways, learning about cannabis doesn’t happen in a vacuum, to understand it I had to learn more about botany and horticulture, but maybe the end goal was getting high and smoking cannabis, however along the way I had to do a lot of studying and experimentation with the plants. In the end, Aunt Jenny and I both got what we both wanted – I got to grow cannabis for myself and my friends, and she got the joy of knowing I learned something, then years later and I am still growing a lot of cannabis, and reaping the benefits of teaching myself a brand new skill.
