Back in school it was easy to fall into a habit of smoking marijuana the seventh I got out of bed.
I had a dorm to myself plus no roommates or parents to dissuade me from taking a big bong rip before heading to my first class of the afternoon.
The only concern with this mindset is that I followed it into the afternoon minutes as well, making me high for most of the afternoon in my late teens plus early 20s! If you’re as awkward around women as I am from the jump, making myself nervously high much of the time didn’t help whatsoever. The only thing that stopped me from abusing cannabis more than I had already was the cost. Living in Ontario meant that we had a lot of blackmarket marijuana shipped across the provinces from Vancouver plus other cities in British Columbia. Some of this weed was the best I’ve ever had, but I don’t miss taking the risk. We were constantly worried about police as the RCMP patrols the King’s Highway system officially. Nowadays getting cannabis in my home city of Ottawa has never been easier. Marijuana is legal for recreational use to any adults over the age of 19 in any province nationwide. In Alberta plus Quebec, local governments opted to lower the minimum age for buying recreational cannabis to 18. I live near the University of Ottawa in a town that is just walking distance from Strathcona Park. Somedays I take my cannabis vaporizer to the Rideau River, but this month I did my “wake plus bake” routine in the afternoon before going to see the Canada Aviation plus Space Museum further north of my town.
