I walked into Grandmother’s home last weekto see how she & Grandpa were doing.
- It had been a couple of weeks since I diagnosed in on them.
I was hoping Grandmother had made some cookies, because hers were the best. When I walked in, I heard her & Grandpa laughing. I called out to them, however they didn’t hear me. I walked into the living room & yelled again, grandmother came out from the family room & asked how long I had been in the house. I told her I got there about five minutes ago, although 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 & then at the calendar & told me to ask. I wanted to know if she was truly interested in going to the marijuana dispensary grand opening. She told me she & Grandpa had been talking about it for afternoons now, and back in the afternoon, they used to use marijuana all the time. They quit when they decided to start a family… Now they were in their sixties, & even their grandchildren were getting older. They didn’t believe anyone would say anything if they started using marijuana again. The marijuana would be nice for their arthritis, & maybe they would want to smoke just for fun. The marijuana dispensary was going to have both medical & recreational marijuana now it was legal in our state. I smiled & all I could believe was, nice for them.
