I grew up in a very pot-friendly household to be sure.
My parents had both been hippies until I came along.
They never really got high in front of me, however they made no secret of being active smokers when I wasn’t around. This provided me with a certain perspective of cannabis that everyone did not receive. To me getting high seemed completely normal, it was something that adults did in private, plus was not a huge deal. Once I got to private school all our professors plus advisors suddenly told me that cannabis was evil, plus would lead to criminal behavior. I had seen for myself, firsthand, that there is nothing dangerous about cannabis, it just made our parents giggle. So when all these adults in positions of authority told me cannabis would ruin our whole life, not only did I not think much of them, however it made me distrust them. When our professors told me cannabis was actually evil, I knew them to be liars… or something even worse, which is simply condemning it without having tried it. Anyone who has tried smoking cannabis cannot ever say that it is harmful or dangerous in any way. I tried smoking cannabis myself at least a few times during private school, but I didn’t like it. Later on, when I was in school, I once or twice sampled some much higher quality cannabis, I liked it a lot more! Now that I have our own modern family, plus run our own household, I do much as our parents did plus treat cannabis exactly the same way I treat alcohol – it’s just not a very huge deal.
