With this new position I have been given the opportunity to work in one of the area’s where I can capitalize on is that of Marijuana. It’s funny, but I always associated the word Marijuana with something illegal, but now with the legalization of this drug here in Oregon it opens up many opportunities. With this new industry of grower, wholesalers and distributors there are regulations set in place by the State of Oregon along with the City’s and towns here. Learning these regulations and having the opportunity to work directly with them will certainly open up many opportunities to work in this field.
I am praying that this limited term position that I am currently working in turns into a full time permanent position, but if for any chance that it doesn’t I have to be prepared to move on. I am standing at a cross road to the land of opportunity and must apply myself to both self education and also whatever formal education that may be available in this area.
Many people already have asked me what my personal belief is on the subject of the legalization of Marijuana and to give an honest answer, “I just don’t know”. All I know is that the people of Oregon voted in favor of legalization while on a national level it is still illegal. I personally don’t like to feel out of control which simply means that if I am in a situation of some type of emergency I want to be able to handle the situation. This applies to alcohol also as I have been known to enjoy a few beers but know when enough is enough. I really don’t like trying to carry on a conversation with someone who is drunk and would probably not be able to relate to someone who is high on Marijuana.
The bottom line is that it is legal and regulation is incredibly important. Homeowners across the State are allowed to grow 3 plants in there own back yards. I know for a fact since gardening here that during our growing season, plants can grow to incredible sizes while producing the most delicious vegetables because we are a rain forest here.
I may be a little bit selfish in thinking the way I do, but I figure that there will be many others who are thinking the same way I do. There have to be rules and regulations enforced and why shouldn’t it be me to join this force.
It seems rather insane that my blood sugars are staying so balanced while not working out. I am eating carbs during the day but not snacking and just staying busy all day. My body weight is heavier than it’s been in a long time. All I can say is that right now I am just going with it. I am not eating unhealthy at all, just a little more carbohydrates than I normally do. Maybe there is a fine line somewhere that I don’t need to cross. I suppose if there is I will know it when I see my sugar levels rising.
