I went to a local medicinal marijuana dispensary that, as of today, is licensed to sell recreational marijuana in California. The place was packed, like a Wal-Mart on Black Friday.
But I fought off the crowds and bought some pot-infused gummies and a bag of THC-laced chocolate chip cookies. I also learned two interesting things during the experience.
First, the percentage of THC, the “active ingredient” that causes the high one gets from cannabis, is lower in marijuana that is permissible to legally sell for recreational use than it is for medical marijuana.
That’s actually fine with me, though. I just want a light buzz. I don’t need or want to get completely blitzed out of my mind.
But the second thing I learned was fantastic. The pot store offers a ten percent senior discount! Seriously? A senior discount for aging Baby Boomer stoners. Oh yeah!
Far out, man!
