The other night I had one of the more interesting times in the boring housing track where I live. It all started that day at work. It was a hell of a day and the only thing I could think about was clocking out. I work in production and sometimes we get hit with a heavy order at the worst time. It was already a couple hours until quitting time when an express order came in that would take around six hours. We were offered overtime and told it needed to get done that day. The job got finished and I got some extra pay, but it really took its toll on me. By the time I got home, I felt like a train wreck. I poured a drink and went out back to sit in the yard and relax. That’s when I started smelling marijuana smoke. My neighbor Bob was in his backyard getting baked. Bob has a medical cannabis prescription and puffs regularly out back. His wife doesn’t want the smoke in the house. I struck up a conversation with Bob that didn’t end until almost midnight. There were many drinks and cannabis smoke between the two of us, and we discussed all sorts of things. Apparently, Bob has been suffering from really bad anxiety and the medical marijuana helps him greatly. I was surprised that weed could help with anxiety. Marijuana always gave me anxiety. Anyway, it was the perfect way to relax after a long day at work, and I am grateful I have an awesome neighbor.
