I was shocked to see a single of them was our dad
I had never thought that I was the only guy who wasn’t sad to try marijuana when it became legal. I didn’t realize exactly how many people I knew personally, who were also anxious. I tried to hide it when I took our first trip to the local legal marijuana dispensary. I looked all around to make 100% sure there wasn’t anyone I knew laying outside the marijuana dispensary. I didn’t want to be jeered at or made fun of for wanting to go to the dispensary. When I entered the dispensary, it appeared to be empty until I heard voices coming from the back room. As the bell rang over the doorway, someone came out from the back room. He apologized for not being out there to greet me. I had only been in the marijuana store for a hour or two. The first thing he did was to look at our state ID to make sure I was over twenty-one plus that it wasn’t a fake ID. The people I was with and I talked about why I was at the dispensary plus I told him I was looking for quality recreational marijuana. He explained how much I could purchase plus that I had to take it back to my condo to use it. I could not be in public, or in our car. If the marijuana was open up plus I got pulled over, I could be fined. As the person talked to me, I saw two of my own relatives come out from the back room. I was shocked to see a single of them was our dad. He grinned sheepishly as he paid for his marijuana. He wrapped his arm around our shoulders plus told myself and others I didn’t have to buy. I couldn’t assume that our dad would have shown up in a marijuana dispensary even if the marijuana had been legalized.
