I asked our sibling how old I needed to be to purchase marijuana here in Denver? I ended up with the longest lecture of our life; My sibling explained that the legal drinking age had always been twenty-one, ever since he could remember, but he thought it may have been eighteen for a short time, but that was in the seventies, when he said he couldn’t understand why I could not get it through our thick head, I opened our mouth, i knew it wasn’t a good thing to do, although I was young and dumb.
Not only wasn’t I thinking that our sibling was our legal guardian and had to show me right from wrong, although I remembered him using marijuana when he was our age; The words were out of our mouth before I realized I was talking.
I told him I remembered him smoking marijuana when I was a lot younger. I thought the laws were peculiar for marijuana than they were for drinking alcohol. My sibling backed off and told me that Denver, CO, keeps the legal age for drinking, smoking marijuana and anything else that could be harmful, at twenty-one. He didn’t live someplace else to guess if they do it differently. I apologized for being so snarky, but periodically our sibling really gets to me. I guess mom and dad left him as our legal guardian, although he has no right to lecture me. Mom and dad still do that enough whenever they call to check up on us both, and he knows how much he enjoys that.
