I keep getting invited to join #Cannabis or #Marijuana -related Facebook Groups or to Like their Facebook page.
I hate that so many people assume that, because I live in Colorado its because of legalized marijuana.
Yes, I was born and raised here, but I don't partake in smoking or eating anything related to marijuana/cannabis.
I went to a party a few years ago and someone had made some sweets. I ate some. It cost me going to the E.R. I had an anaphylactic reaction to what was in the sweets. That means my throat began to swell shut. Thank God I carry an Epi-Pen and could inject myself with it immediately.
I later found out that someone had put marijuana in them.
I have over 250 food/medication/environmental allergies, many of which could be deadly, literally, for me.
I am proud to say that Colorado is known for other things and not just marijuana...beautiful weather, sun is out over 300 days of the year, beautiful scenery, culture, demographics and according to several studies, Coloradans have the lowest rates of obesity of any state in the US.
So, please don't “assume” that I live in Colorado for the marijuana....remember that “assume,” means ass-of-you-and-me.
