One of my best friends from high school moved during our sophomore year.
His parents decided to move the family to a suburb in Illinois. My friend and I did not talk again until we were at the same College. We spent four years at the University of Illinois. My friend went back to living in Orland Park, a suburb outside of Chicago. After University was over, I went back to Utah. My friend and I lost touch, but he contacted me a couple of years ago. He was excited to find my profile on Facebook. We started talking about life and our jobs and he mentioned the fact that marijuana is legal in Illinois. He suggested that I move to Orland Park and live in an apartment with him. He knew a place that was hiring and guaranteed he could find a job for me. I did not consider the idea at first, because I thought it was a silly idea. Once I started thinking about the perks of living in a legal marijuana state, I decided to move. My friend and I have an apartment and the place is very large and spacious. I have a job working right in Orland Park, but I could commute to Chicago if necessary. It’s nice having legal marijuana, but that doesn’t change the cold. For the first time in a while, I often wake up shivering. I even had to buy a space heater for my bedroom. Even with the france running, the room still feels cold because of the three ceiling to floor windows.
