My first stop was to a friend who wanted to make brownies for a party being held to celebrate the day, but she had nothing to lace the brownies with. I dropped off butter and a good supply of bud mud left over from making tincture. Her neighbor got some balm and a bottle of infused honey.
I traveled over to deliver bud to a friend to take up to a patient in Gold Beach that was out of medicine. I did that one for a donation. I also supplied bud to another patient who donated to cover the cost. She gave me an extra 20.00 to cover what I often give to someone ill. I still had about an ounce of bud in my box left to give away.
I went to swim the laps I have decided my old body needs. I mentioned my intentions of celebrating by giving away items. After I got myself dressed, there were several fellow swimmers waiting at my car. They got balm, tincture and chocolates. My next stop was for lunch with a friend. A nice man eagerly accepted some bud. I loved being able to ask some stranger if they wanted some marijuana. It felt free and liberating. I felt normal! I did feel pretty awesome giving away my product, but realized that I would not be doing this very often or maybe not again. A group of guys traveling on their motorcycles got the rest of my bud so I went home with an empty box. I hope those who got my treasures appreciated them and maybe even learned something about what marijuana medicine is all about. I am after all a curandera and not a drug dealer tempting new suckers to get hooked to buy from me after realizing the goodness of the products they were lucky enough to be given. My aim is to educate and to heal.
If you are interested in the laws according to Oregon click on the link. On Oct 1, 2015, our medical marijuana dispensaries will be able to sell marijuana to recreational users, but in the meantime; the black market will be raking in the money paying no taxes. That is 3 months of summer time fun without Oregon benefiting any revenue from the new legalization. What were they thinking? I wonder if there is actually a reasonable reason for their indecision not to decide some basic elements for the legalization procedure? I haven't really read anything but that they were not ready to decide. Why not for Pete's sake? Using pot to be legal in Oregon — but not selling it
Meanwhile, here in Oregon; we are free to indulge without ending up in jail or even getting a fine, if we use good sense and not do it in public. Good things are happening. I am finally able to feel quite normal instead of being classified as "an old hippie" or "deluded woman" who has no idea of the evils of reefer madness. I can talk about marijuana in any group at any time without someone hushing me for fear that my comments may be questionable in the eyes of the law.
