Our group of buddies has constantly been completely close.
We are a collection of outcasts, for various reasons, who find comfort and stimulation in each other’s company.
This actually means long weekends of hanging out together and just talking, playing games, and smoke. The lockdown didn’t actually impact us legitimately much, because we ignored it and hung out just as much as ever. No social distancing for us, but we never had outsiders over to the property. It is constantly just the same group of people so I recognize that likely helped to minimize the risks. Besides, we are sharing a bong and smoking cannabis together, which means we are regularly sharing germs anyway. Marijuana is known for causing coughing fits, which is a pretty good way to spread germs throughout an entire property. Honestly, at this point we have all accepted that if one of us gets COVID, all of us will get COVID. It honestly is a small price to pay to keep hanging out and smoking cannabis together like normal. Actually one of us, Debra, made the choice that she wanted to minimize her risks, so all she uses is marijuana edibles. She always keeps her mask on when she hangs out. We tell her that she is still at risk, even without smoking marijuana with the rest of us, and it may not be reducing her risks very much anyway. Whatever the case, we support her option to use cannabis edibles because it gives her a nice sense of calm, which helps her relax and have a great time like normal. Actually, I am starting to adore the cannabis edibles myself!
