The other day I got out of work just like any other day and headed to the bus stop to wait for my ride home. I like to take the bus to work instead of drive because it saves on gas, miles, and wear, as well as I don’t really want to pay attention on my rides to and from work. I’m either anxious or exhausted and it’s much better for me psychologically to just turn off and stare blankly out the window. Well, the other day while I was waiting for the bus I caught a whiff of something. At first, I couldn’t place it, but it didn’t take long for me to realize that it was marijuana. I looked around and saw a guy about twenty feet away who appeared to be smoking a joint. Curiously I approached him to see if I was correct in my assumption. I have no problem with someone smoking cannabis, but I was intrigued about why he would smoke it out in the open with other people around. He told me it was medical marijuana prescribed to him by a doctor. He said he wasn’t sure about the legality of smoking in public, but it wasn’t illegal for him to have it so why not just smoke the medical marijuana and see what happens. I definitely appreciated his honesty and candid nature. He told me that he gets horrible anxiety from riding buses and the medical cannabis helps him. I am also quite anxious these days. Maybe I’ll see if medical marijuana is right for me too.
