My mother walked into the house Last weekand asked me how aged she needed to be to purchase marijuana, and i told her a person needed to be 21, but she didn’t need to worry, however mom was forty-five years old, & I was tempted to tell her she may be too aged to purchase marijuana, but she would not have been pleased.
I asked why she wanted to know about marijuana, then she told me she heard that marijuana was legal in Chicago, & she wanted to buy some, then now, I was laughing. I could never see mom using marijuana in any form, but she was talking about smoking. She said she would never go outside with marijuana because some of her church friends may see her. I explained that was a good thing, because it was illegal to be in public while using marijuana. Mom asked me to go to the marijuana dispensary with her & purchase some marijuana for her. I didn’t think this was a good idea, & I tried to put her off until dad came home. I kept hoping my partner would call because there was an emergency with our adolescents. I wanted to do anything but sit her & have the marijuana discussion with my mom. I was ready to pretend my partner was calling me when dad arrived. I told mom dad could take her to the marijuana dispensary that was more than one blocks away, in Chicago, IL where I lived, & headed out the door. I could see the confusion on dad’s face & told him mom would explain everything after I left. I could hear her saying something about her going with me to the marijuana dispensary.
