Back in college I had a lot more time to spend with my friends hanging out leisurely.
Instead of always going out to bars and various locations downtown on the weekends, we would simply all show up at my friend Chris’s apartment to relax and smoke weed. At the time we were all young and wondering where we would end up in life. I swore that I would move out west to the opposite side of the country, which didn’t pan out. My other friends were unsure, but most of them have made it out of this state while I remain. It was also more exciting to get high at that age because it was still incredibly new to most of us. While a few of my friends had been smoking since middle school, I had just started along with other friends of mine. By the time I moved into a shared house during my last two years of undergraduate school, we used to turn the lights down in the living room on the weekends, turn on the lava lamps, and blast spacey music out of the stereo while smoking potent cannabis. These are some of my fondest memories from college when I look back on it all. While cannabis was a fixture in much of my college memories, it was moments like the ones shared in our living room those two years that stand out above the rest. I heard some of my favorite music of all for the very first time in that living room. It’s also when I first tried White Widow, OG Kush, and Blue Dream before I was able to shop strains at medical cannabis dispensaries about 10 years later.
