I do understand why the marijuana cow is sacred. Ever since high school, some of my friends have been casual drug users, including a few very close friends. I used to have a "live and let live" attitude about those consenting, informed adults, and then I had a child.
Parenthood really does change one's perspective.
Somewhere along the way, I realized that illegal drugs were readily available to MY SON and his friends, because "consenting adults" kept the local dealers in business. And those dealers are always happy to accommodate new customers. Then the charming and delightful Mrs. Dr. Jekyll transformed onto a raving, frothing, rabid PISSED OFF MOTHER BEAR of a Mrs. Hyde.
So believe me, I get it.
