When I was younger, I would have laughed had anyone chose to tell me they would someday have legal recreational marijuana dispensaries.
I couldn’t believe the states would legalize marijuana at all.
When the doctors began talking about marijuana being the next medical phenomenon, I didn’t suppose the lawmakers would get-together & pass a law for legal, medical marijuana & having a medical marijuana dispensary. They had me wondering what would possibly come next. Then I also came to the realization that the people who were now making the laws & passing them were younger than me. 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 chose to look at recreational marijuana. Someone must have realized how much income potential there was for the state allowing legal recreational marijuana. They could tax legal recreational marijuana the same way they taxed tobacco & alcohol. Instead of taking the money from the people by weighing them down with severe taxes, they could just get all the money they need from the marijuana. I almost laughed at the thought of legal recreational cannabis, marijuana, or whatever name they were trying to call it. By saying it was legal recreational cannabis, it sounded more medical. Now, I am laughing because we have legal recreational marijuana delivery services. No one needs to go into the awful part of town & buy their marijuana on street corners, which makes the lawmakers feel amazing. As they pretend they are making it better for the marijuana users, they are making some serious money.
