My parents do not approve of my job in any way, and it’s been causing a lot of friction in our relationship! They especially don’t appreciate the fact that I stopped going to community college to toil full time.
School was typically something I did for them, not for myself.
When I was honest with myself, I had to confess that I didn’t care for going to school. I was ready to start working and making money… So just for that reason they were exasperated with me. Then when they learned what job I was training for they basically lost their minds. They were never legitimately keen on any kind of drugs, so me working in a cannabis dispensary was absolutely infuriating to them. Of course I try to tell them that cannabis isn’t a “drug” like they suppose it is. They have heard decades worth of anti-cannabis propaganda so they actually believe that pot is the same as cocaine or heroin. That is absolutely false, just misinformation spread by the government and tobacco lobby, who view marijuana as their biggest rival. Cannabis is a plant, it grows naturally, and finally a lot of people in state and local governments are realizing that. I actually use CBD oil but don’t tend to indulge in cannabis hardly ever. My folks don’t even see the difference between the two! They act like I have become a drug dealer, however I’m just a store director for a cannabis dispensary, who gets excellent pay with full medical and dental benefits, something that legitimately few drug dealers actually have!
