Y’all – I cannot believe Alabama made the historic vote last month and passed medical marijuana legislation. This makes me so incredibly happy as one of the things besides my family & friends I left behind in Florida – was my medical marijuana rights.
That is right, you heard me correctly. The CannaBoss Mom is a legit cannabis mom. Like a THC loving cannabis mom.
She’s just been in the closet the last two years because there are some uneducated, judgmental, special people out there in this world these days. Also, I was afraid how it could impact my career opportunities (being labeled immediately by HR for disclosing my use or having been looked up open social media finding out my blog talks about the devil plant #asif) and my husband’s job, so I put coming out on hold until the timing was right.
Believe it or not, it was hard enough to just bridge the gap with the CBD learning curve two years ago. It just hasn’t been the right time to throw THC in the mix… until now? Look at you Alabama – opening up those doors for people to seek alternative plant medication. I approve and look forward to adding my Alabama Medical Marijauna ID to my collection one day.
In reality, is there even a right time? Is the stigma going to be gone next year? In two years? When it is completely federally legalized? Nope, probably not. IMO, the stigma will always be there because it’s very hard to change anyone’s deep rooted beliefs. Just look at every hot topic out there… homosexuality, abortion and now freaking COVID and vaccines?! You know that old saying, opinions are like an a**hole, everyone has one!
So I guess I am officially out of the closet now that I pushed “publish”on this blog post.
FACT: right before we made the decision to move to Alabama, I was about to take my blog to the next level… all things cannabis, not just CBD.
I wanted to share my journey with other moms looking for ways to manage their physical and mental health outside big pharma.
I wanted to let my social media community know that it is okay to be a “pot smoking mom” and you’ve got a huge tribe out there ready to support you.
I wanted to be a confided resource for moms who are ready to take the next step after CBD and incorporate THC into their personal wellness journey.
I wanted to be a mom who helps to guide you on strain specific relief and methods of consumption.
I wanted to be that mom who shares her story with you on my first dispensary experience and what to expect when you go.
While I patiently wait to become “that mom” in present Alabama life (hurry up legislation), feel free to reach out to me about FL medical marijuana life and any questions you might have. INSPIRE me with some blog ideas on my medicinal experience.
Questions about my FL Medical Marijuana Experience?
In the meantime, I will continue to help spread the gospel about the most misunderstood plant on earth and begin my new adventure with The Women’s Cannabis Chamber of Commerce in Denver, Colorado.
I will finally be utilizing my master’s degree in Nonprofit Management after 11 years!!! WHOOP WHOOP!!
Stay tuned… more to come on this adventure!
