I find it to be especially remarkable how varying perspectives that are introduced to you as a kid go on to absolutely frame the way you look at life.
I used to laugh at those stereotypical lines of the shrink telling the lady on the couch to tell them all about their childhood.
That seemed like nothing but bunk to me. However, the older I have become, I easily see how it works now. I suppose that I have views in my adult life that were planted there from when I was a youngster. Take recreational marijuana use for instance. My parents made a point of just scaring the hell out of me about marijuana products. And there was nothing rational in their statements in the slightest. Plus, they had no idea in the least what they were talking about given they had never even tried cannabis or cannabis products. What was even more hypocritical was the fact they were easily heavy drinkers. But, all that fear based marijuana product bashing certainly had the desired effect. I steered clear of it even during college when everybody was using recreational marijuana at that point. But then, I took a massive leap in addition to went shopping at a local cannabis spot near where I live. I simply wanted to know for myself what this was all about. The staff helped me select a lower THC amount of cannabis edible. I took it back to my place, sat in the backyard in addition to had one of the better afternoons of my life. So, it goes to show you that everything the bunch of us are taught as children just isn’t necessarily the case. And that absolutely has been the case for me when it comes to recreational marijuana.
