I was a police officer for over 15 years.
I can’t tell you how many people had marijuana in their car.
Looking back, I truly regret pulling them over. I quit the force a few years ago and I’ve never looked back. I have a little bit of stress from my time as a police officer and I have the aches and pains that come with getting older. But, I was reluctant when a buddy of mine suggested using legal cannabis for my pains. It’s just been so ingrained in me that weed is bad and a gateway drug. It’s difficult to untrain your mind from 10 years of cop work. But then again, that was my problem. That’s why I have the stress to start with. After talking it over with numerous good friends, I finally decided I was going to try legal weed for the first time. I went to a recreational cannabis store and they were entirely great in helping me find some legal marijuana to help me with my stress and my aches and pains. I liked that they had oils and edibles for me to try as well. The thought of smoking a joint or a bong does not appeal to me at all. It just has too many stigmas attached to them. I also don’t think inhaling smoke is good. I can get the THC in my body in other ways. I also only need CBD for most of my issues. I can just use an oil in my coffee in the morning. It is as simple as that.
