I was always a straight arrow kid, all the way through the end of high school.
- It wasn’t that I never had a chance to “break bad” so to speak, I just chose not to.
I knew that college was in my future, and college was the place to experiment with new things. What was the rush, was my thinking, so I never even drank a beer until the night of my graduation. I am really glad I waited, because high school was enough of a minefield to navigate, even with a clear head. Once I left home and went away to school I tried cannabis for the first time, and to say it changed my life is an understatement. Did you know that marijuana has a muting effect on your dreams? I’m not saying you don’t dream after you smoke marijuana, because we all dream, it is one of the natural (if unexplained) functions of the brain. But when you regularly smoke cannabis it quiets your dreams, and makes them a lot harder to remember the next day. All my life I suffered from night terrors, sleep walking, and the like, so this side effect of smoking marijuana was such a blessing for me. I do not smoke marijuana all day every day, of course, because I have a full course load plus a part time job. But every night when it’s time to relax, when my studies are done, I fire up some Indica strains, or maybe I will choose some Sativa strains, and I will smoke myself into a blissful sleep.
