I walked into grandma’s house last week to see how she and grandpa were doing.
It had been a couple of weeks since I checked in on them.
I was hoping grandma had made some cookies, because hers were the best. When I walked in, I heard her and grandpa laughing. I called out to them, but they didn’t hear me. I walked into the kitchen and yelled again. Grandma came out from the living room and asked how long I had been in the house. I told her I got there about five minutes ago, but I didn’t tell her it was long enough to look at her calendar. Circled on the calendar was the date for the marijuana dispensary grand opening. She looked at me and then at the calendar and told me to ask. I wanted to know if she was really interested in going to the marijuana dispensary grand opening. She told me she and grandpa had been talking about it for days now. Back in the day, they used to use marijuana all the time. They quit when they decided to start a family. Now they were in their sixties, and even their grandchildren were getting older. They didn’t think anyone would say anything if they started using marijuana again. The marijuana would be good for their arthritis, and maybe they would want to smoke just for fun. The marijuana dispensary was going to have both medical and recreational marijuana now it was legal in our state. I smiled and all I could think was, good for them.
