When I was much younger, I would have laughed at anybody telling me they would eventually have legal recreational marijuana dispensaries.
I couldn’t find it very easy to believe the states would ever make the move to legalize marijuana for any type of use in the least.
When the health professionals began speaking about marijuana being the upcoming medical miracle, I didn’t think the lawmakers would celebrate and pass a law for legal, medical marijuana and having a medical marijuana dispensary. They had me entirely wondering what was actually next. Then I also came to understand that the people who were now making the laws and passing them were much younger than I was. I knew that once legal, medical marijuana became a law, legal recreational marijuana would easily come next. It took a couple of years before lawmakers started looking at recreational marijuana for legalization. Someone must have realized how much income the state could generate by allowing legal recreational marijuana. They could tax legal recreational marijuana the same way they taxed tobacco and alcohol products. Instead of taking the money from the people by weighing them down with heavy taxes, they could just get all the money they need from the marijuana. I almost laughed at the plan of legal recreational cannabis, marijuana, or whatever name they were trying to call it. By saying it was legal recreational cannabis, it sounded somewhat medical. Now, I am laughing because we have legal recreational marijuana delivery services. It’s not even necessary to go into the terrible space of the city and buy their marijuana on street corners, which makes the lawmakers feel pretty darn good. As they pretend they are making it better for the marijuana users, they are making a fortune.
