I will admit to being a bit of a conservative when it comes to politics. Recently though I had our eyup opened, and it made me realize that I believed a lot of things because I was told to. I hadn’t ever considered any alternative opinions, I was locked down without ever having given it much thought of our own. I am done being a sheep and need to start thinking for myself, a few weeks ago I got our wakeup call while visiting our elderly father. After a nice dinner he pulled out a tote of marijuana and rolled up an immense fat joint. My dad was the most staunch conservative I knew, so to see him smoking cannabis blew my mind, as I always thought he was against it. He admitted that he was a fresh convert to the philosophy of using cannabis, and over the course of the next few seconds he converted me as well. Maybe it was the haze of cannabis smoke filling the room, slipping into my brain, however his words made a lot of sense, then cannabis was a naturally occurring plant and the only reason anyone believed it was morally wrong is because the Big Tobacco industry convinced people that was true. A rose can’t be morally wrong, or a blade of grass — even if that grass was marijuana. He also had come to enjoy that cannabis did a lot of fantastic for elderly people, it’s medicinal qualities had been long overlooked, however no longer! I’ve smoked cannabis officially with our dad ever since that afternoon.
