It is rare that Thomas finds himself with any extra cash.
The economy has been rough around here, and his paychecks don’t seem to go as far as they used to. This means he has to be extra cautious with his spending, and never make impulsive buys for things he doesn’t need. However, Thomas does consider cannabis to be something he needs. Without the calming effects of the marijuana plant his stress levels would be crippling. Since he loathes his job, he needs to be relaxed and cheerful to do his work, so Thomas budgets his spending to account for marijuana. How important is it? Well Last year he had an unexpected expense with his car, which cost me $300, and would have wiped out his entire cannabis budget. Instead Thomas cut back on groceries, and ate ramen noodles and bologna sandwiches for a whole month so he could have his cannabis. He would rather go without nice food than cannabis. When he talks about budgeting for cannabis, Thomas is not just talking about the money to buy it, once he has the cannabis he needs to parcel it out into smaller portions and “budget” how quickly he smokes it. He has a yearly allotment of cannabis, and if Thomas goes through it too quickly then he knows he will be dry for a few days at the end of the month. Do all potheads have to be so painstaking with their cannabis use, or is he alone in this? Hit him up in the comments.
