I never smoke in the house, and I always make sure to change my t-shirt before going home so I don’t reek of marijuana smoke, so they don’t know how much I do it.
My parents always told me to stand up for what I believe in. They were not happy when they learned how much I believed in the legalization of medical marijuana. Mom and Dad were both steadfastly against it, mostly due to their antiquated mindsets. They argued with me, but I feel that deep down they were proud of my passion. After all, I learned to fight for my beliefs because of them! I started working for a local political activism group to spread the word about the referendum on making medical marijuana legal throughout the state. I led them to believe that I was very interested in getting high, but didn’t want to do so until cannabis had been legalized. That’s what I told them, but the truth was I smoked cannabis every single day, and had been doing so for a long time. I never smoke in the house, and I always make sure to change my t-shirt before going home so I don’t reek of marijuana smoke, so they don’t know how much I do it. My life would be a lot easier if I didn’t have to sneak around, because I don’t want to give up cannabis, but I also can’t afford to move out of their house just yet. If cannabis is made legal then all of my problems are solved, at least for the time being. For now I will keep sneaking my cannabis, and keep working as hard as I can to change the minds of the community so they will vote for legalization.
