Back in college it was self-explanatory to fall into a habit of smoking marijuana the minute I got out of bed.
I had a dorm to myself & no roommates or parents to dissuade myself and others from taking a huge bong rip before heading to our first class of the afternoon.
The only problem with this mindset is that I followed it into the afternoon hours as well, making myself and others high for most of the afternoon in our late teens & early 20s. If you’re as awkward around men as I am from the jump, making myself nervously high much of the time didn’t help whatsoever. The only thing that stopped myself and others from abusing cannabis more than I had already was the cost. Living in Ontario meant that both of us had a lot of blackmarket marijuana shipped across the provinces from Vancouver & other cities in British Columbia. Some of this weed was the best I’ve ever had, however I don’t miss taking the risk. Every one of us were consistently distraught about police as the RCMP patrols the King’s Highway plan respectfully. Nowadays getting cannabis in our house town 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 & Quebec, local governments opted to lower the minimum age for buying recreational cannabis to 18. I live near the University of Ottawa in a city that is just walking distance from Strathcona Park. Somedays I take our cannabis vaporizer to the Rideau River, however this month I did our “wake & bake” routine in the afternoon before going to see the Canada Aviation & Space Museum further north of our village.
