My friends and I were too stupid without our cananbis use in college.
I used to roll fat blunts and smoke them on the balcony of our dorm room in our freshman year of college. All it would have taken was a single campus police officer to walk by at that exact instance. On top of it all, all of us were living in a state that was not at all friendly towards cannabis use. This state now has medical marijuana, but you can get charged with a DUI simply for having your products in their same containers if the cop who pulls you over for a broken tail light is on a power trip that afternoon. Thankfully I left that state after college and was lucky to find a task in Ypsilanti. My friends all live in Ann Arbor, but since our apartment is on N Huron River Dr, it doesn’t take myself and others honestly long to get from our location to theirs. Often all of us will meet up in Gallup Park to smoke a blunt or a joint. Gallup Park is particularally gorgeous in the early Fall as the leaves are changing colors and the ducks gather along the surfaces of the Huron River. However, you need to be careful smoking cannabis in public, even though Ann Arbor decriminalized it decades ago. I was recently ticketed by an Ann Arbor City Police Officer for smoking a joint in Gallup Park with our friend on a random afternoon. I should recognize lucky the cop didn’t arrest me, because that’s what would have happened in several other cities in this country. We’re absolutely lucky to have such loose laws surrounding cannabis enforcement in both Ann Arbor and MI at large.
