I was actually raised in a very strict home plus there were certain topics that were entirely off limits.
My parents are actually conservative plus didn’t allow any sort of drug or alcohol use in our property.
They even told us that they expected us to continue this once the people I was with and I moved out. Just like any child raised in this strict of an environment however, my sibling plus I both went on a rebellious journey when the two of us left for university. This was a rather immense disappointment to our parents plus it caused a strained relationship that still exists even today. I didn’t help matters when I graduated either. I gained my degree in horticulture plus I went on to do work at a well respected research facility in Colorado. As most people know, this state was among the first to choose legalize the use of mairjuana for both medical plus recreational use. When I took the job I was aware that I would be on a team that was working on modern strains of the plant to help provide relief for various pain symptoms. I knew that I could help to make a pretty enormous difference in the quality of life for these people. I also knew that I dreaded getting a hold of my parents to tell them about the amazing job I had gotten… I knew that I would not get the congratulations that I deserved for getting such a fantastic work position right out of university. Instead, I would get a lecture on how marijuana was a very dangerous drug plus that they did not support the use of it for medical or any other reason. My parents only view the use of any controlled substance as an illegal act plus will never support its use no matter how beneficial it has been proven to be for many medicinal uses.
