High Times

I received a mailer today from a company called Amuse – Cannabis delivered to your door. Hey kids look, drug delivery!

In college I argued for the legalization of marijuana. My reasoning was that the only reason it is illegal is because the pharmaceutical companies do not want the competition. I still feel this way but now that it is legal, and having this mailer in front of me it feels a bit surreal. It is also a a little sad because our society seems to be in a very fast decline where over half of the population is on some sort of medication.

Whether you’re into vape pens, edibles, flower, pre-rolls, concentrates, tinctures, topicals, pills, beverages, or are just looking for some accessories, we’ve got hundreds of products from your favorite brands. All for less. All delivered safely and conveniently to your doorstep.

I don’t even know what three of the products mentioned are. But again, reading this list I cannot help but feel sad that so many people need this type of thing to feel better. It is a very scary statistic that almost 70% of Americans take prescription medication and the fact that companies like ‘amuse’ are thriving is a testament to this dependency. Yet on social media their lives are all nothing short of perfect.

Society in decline indeed. But I guess that has been said since the dawn of time. I can imagine what my Grandparents would have said about the ’60s and all those hippies. It is ironic that most of those hippies turned out to be hyper-materialistic.

Well I don’t want to write a long post. Society is always changing but it just feels like things have been getting steadily worse over the past decade and the pace of decline is rapidly increasing.

As for the weed, wine is still my drug of choice. If the decline continues maybe I’ll have to try a flower or a tincture, whatever the hell those are.
