Cannabis Conversations with Parents: What Was Your First High Like?

Whether they smoked pot in high school or recently began using medical marijuana to soothe their pain, many parents have their own experiences with cannabis. The question is — did those first highs begin a lifelong relationship with the plant, or scare them away from it? And would they want a similar experience for their own children? 


After a battery of tests and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease twelve years ago, and thus began a long battle with trial-and-error medical treatments. I changed my diet several times, even though my doctors didn’t seem confident it would change much (it didn’t), went to physical therapy for pain-related issues, and took so many different pharmaceuticals I can’t even begin to recall each and every one. My days were foggy due to side effects from pharmaceuticals, such as steroids, that made me feel worse than I did before I even took them.

Can we see some ID please?
