I went to college some 20 years ago, and looking back at it, the world seemed like a very different place back then.
I’m glad I got all my schooling out of the way before the advent of social media, because I found it hard enough to concentrate as it was.
I actually didn’t even end of graduating, at the time, because I had to pick up a full time job to pay the bills. Some years later I finished my degree online, but that’s really getting away from the point. While I was in college my best friend was a marijuana dealer named Ben. He wasn’t just a seller of cannabis, however, he was also a full time student, and he was actually paying his way through school with marijuana sales. He was an ace student, and actually had more time to focus on his studies because he could set his own hours with the marijuana business. Ben was incredibly knowledgeable about all the different strains of cannabis he sold. He could give a history lesson on when and where a particular strain came from, what it’s THC content was, and what kind of high it gave you. He was also only the guy I’ve ever bought marijuana from who took checks! Like I said, that was a different time, these days I can just walk up the block to the nearest cannabis dispensary and speak with any number of budtenders. Ben was a budtender who ran a private cannabis dispensary long before it was legal, those were the days.
