I wasn’t very happy when my son said that he was going to move to Seattle to be with a girl.
- I immediately thought that she was trying to scam his heart in some way and get all of his money.
It’s not as if my son had a ton of money, but I was worried about him. I didn’t want to see him leave me and the rest of the family and then end up with a broken heart. I said as many prayers as possible and I guess they must have been answered. My son and the girl ended up getting married a couple of years ago and now they have two beautiful children that are my grandchildren. I recently drove to Seattle to see them for a week. I stayed at the house in Seattle where the kids live. One thing that I noticed right away was the smell of marijuana. The entire house smelled like marijuana. It wasn’t just one room or one place. When I asked my son about the smell, he claimed it was basil or oregano from cooking the previous night. I told my son that I wasn’t a fool and I know what the smell of marijuana was like. He came clean to me about using recreational marijuana supplies. He told me that he and his girlfriend had been using recreational marijuana for the past 2 years together. It really helped her get through her postpartum depression after the first kid and the two of them enjoyed the mental health benefits so much that they continue to use marijuana now as well.
