I grew up in a super strict residence as well as there were particular topics that were always off limits.
My parents are very conservative as well as didn’t allow any sort of drug or alcohol use in our residence.
They even told us that they expected us to continue this once we moved out from under their roof. Of course, like any child raised in such a strict residence, my brother as well as I both went on a rebellious journey when we left for university. This was a fairly huge disappointment to our parents as well as it caused a strained relationship that still exists to this very day. I didn’t help matters when I graduated from university either. I received my degree in horticulture as well as I went on to work at a research facility in Colorado. Most people know that this state was among the first to legalize the use of mairjuana for both medical as well as recreational use! When I took the work position I knew that I would be on an elite team that was entirely working on modern strains of the plant to help supply relief for various pain symptoms. I knew that I could help tremendously to make a difference in the quality of life for these people. I also knew that I dreaded reaching out to my parents to tell them about the amazing work I had gotten. I knew that I would not get the congratulations that I deserved for getting such a great task position right out of university. Instead, I would get a lecture on how marijuana was an incredibly dangerous substance as well as that they did not condone the use of it for medical or any other reason. My parents only view the use of any controlled substance as an illegal act as well as will never condone its use no matter how beneficial it actually is for numerous people.
