We like the sativas
I have been friends with my next door neighbor for quite some time now. Ever since I moved into the neighborhood, she and I have been talking and I would have coffee with her. Over the last couple of months, I have been shying away from her, and actually trying to avoid being around her. I’ve noticed that she has taken up smoking marijuana, and it isn’t just the fact that I hate the smell, but I am a teacher. I can’t afford to have the odor of marijuana on my clothing or in my hair. She also has a couple of kids, which really worries me. I’ve considered calling the police, because marijuana is illegal in our state, but I hate to think what would happen to her children if she is arrested. I want to talk to her, but I really don’t know what to say to her about the marijuana. I’ve found that it is easier to just ignore her when she calls or comes over, and not to talk to her. Last week, I was talking about her, with a mutual friend of ours. She told me that my friend was having some pretty rough medical problems. I hadn’t known about this, but then our friendship was pretty superficial. She said that the doctor had prescribed medical marijuana to help ease some of her pain that goes with the condition. I felt so bad, because I had assumed the worst about her. I have considered grabbing a pizza and just showing up at her door. Maybe I’ll be able to talk to her about what I was feeling, or maybe we can just start over again, and become real friends.
