When I finished college and I was looking for jobs, I never expected to end up in Denver, Colorado. I grew up in Florida and I went to college in Pennsylvania. A business firm in Denver offered me a job and it was the best offer I received out of 10 different places. The job offer came with a company car at entry level. I was a whiz at software and computers and this job was everything I wanted. My girlfriend didn’t want to move to Denver, so I had to convince her that it was the best decision for both of us. I wasn’t going anywhere without her next to me. I made a list of all the cool places in Denver that we could visit together. I also added the ski resorts to the list, because my girlfriend and I both enjoyed going skiing when we went to college in Pennsylvania. My girlfriend still wasn’t convinced that Denver, CO was the place for us to move. When she found out that cannabis was legal recreationally and medically, she changed her mind quickly. After we moved to Denver, my girlfriend started using cannabis recreationally. She uses cannabis everyday now, and she calls it her medical routine. At first I thought it was silly to use recreational cannabis all of the time, but it actually makes my girlfriend feel much more calm and at ease. When I smoke marijuana every once in a while, I don’t feel calm or relaxed. I feel bursts of energy and an uncontrollable urge to break out in song and dance.
