Smoking Weed at Thanksgiving & Other Festive Meals
So after much hesitation, I’ve decided to take a plunge into the world of marijuana legalization.
This isn’t me declaring that marijuana is the next great cultural movement of the 21st century. That’s up to the masses to decide to what degree and in what ways they feel they’ve been screwed by the so-called “establishment.”
Just because I’ve decided it’s time to partake of the “mellow” plant, and also because I’m very much into all things “alternative” (it’s not cool to be a “hippie” these days, for example), I hope I’m not going to get run over by the masses. As for legalization, I’m not the only one who thinks it’s a good idea. I know that a lot of people see the benefits of legalization, and a lot of people oppose it. But I’ve got to say, I’m glad I didn’t wait for this to happen.
Let me say right off the bat that I’m not even remotely interested in being the poster kid for the legalization movement. I’d like to think I would have stayed out of it had it not been for a little bit of encouragement from a friend from high school who is also a doctor. He told me that I’d probably be a hypocrite if I didn’t legalize. He also told me to use marijuana, because it’s very much more mellow than the things you see out there that are illegal.
I’m not going to try and explain the science of marijuana, because there’s a good chance I’d need more medical training than I’m ready to commit to. There are a lot on the web who have much more experience with this topic.
I mean, marijuana doesn’t seem to have a bad side. If anything, it seems to have a positive side. You feel more relaxed, you’re more likely to take on a challenge, you’re less tolerant of pain, and you’re more likely to get angry.
