I have seen a bunch of crazy things over the last couple of years, however I never expected our state to actually legalize marijuana.
The bunch of us have a truly conservative state that still believes that dancing is the Devil’s work. My Grandma has a completely different view. She says she was dancing when her own mother thought it should be illegal. My parents got into a debate at her household a couple months ago. They were talking with my uncle and aunt about the legalization of marijuana. My Grandma sat in the living room and rolled her eyes completely. She told myself and others they were a bunch of outdated hens. I laughed with her and she shushed me. She admitted that she had smoked pot in her younger days, and it wasn’t nearly as bad as their messing around with their vodka and tonic. Until that afternoon, I looked at Grandma like another outdated lady who just babbled about things. I found out she was actually cool. She told myself and others she wasn’t saying it was okay to smoke pot. Now, they would throw the kids in jail. In her time, they took them back home to their parents. I had to agree because I had seen several of my friends thrown in jail just for smoking pot. When I found out they had legalized the use of marijuana, I went right over to tell her. She told me to get her sweater and take her to town. She knew someone who sold marijuana, and she wanted to know what it was like to use it legally. She said it made her joints feel way better, although she still didn’t really enjoy the smell of marijuana.
