I used to live in a recreational weed state.
I never really thought much of it.
I just got the cannabis I wanted, when I wanted. I typically choose an edible if I want some relief. I would dabble with other methods of consumption though. A topical for chronic pain, a tincture to sleep, some flowers in order to treat my anxiety. It was really nice to get in and out when I wanted to. Well I had to move for a job promotion. I considered so many things before the move. I thought about the weather of my new state, the restaurants, cost of housing, schools, nearby airports, etc. I didnt’ think about the fact that I moved from a recreational cannabis state to a medical weed only state. It is so different here. I can’t just get what I want anymore. I have done the process of getting my medical weed card. It was worth doing for sure. However, I now have strict limitations. I am not perceiving as much cannabis as I would like. I also am only allowed flower form of cannabis. I miss edibles and topicals. I miss being able to grab what I want. I am going to stay in this state for years. I hope that they eventually get to be a recreational cannabis state. If not, I won’t be staying in the area forever. Cannabis is too important to me. I can bear only one type of weed for now, but forever isn’t going to be happening in my case.
