Flash Fiction #219

High

IT’S HIGH TIME

So, Canada had legalized marijuana, and he had wound up getting a job with one of the legal grow-ops after graduating from Agricultural College. Given the ‘entertainment’ habits of some of his dorm-mates, it was a surprise that it was him, rather than one of the 4:20 cadre.

He was pleased with the safety equipment his employer provided – gloves, coveralls, respirator masks. His hometown had once been the center of a tobacco-growing area. Each year there had been at least one case of death from nicotine poisoning. Here, about the worst thing that happened, was a nice contact high buzz.

It’s a good thing that I went back to proof-read one more time. Spell-Check didn’t catch that I had titled this Flesh” Fiction. That’s a whole different genre!   😳 🙄

    Yes, flesh fiction would have required an entirely different direction!

    I always wonder about these large scale productions – do they make rope from the hemp stalks after the strip the flowers and leaves?

    I’d rather see new industry around the rec/med-weed industry than building new weapons of war anyday.

  6. A weed farm is certainly a step in the right direction away from tobacco

    Speaking of “high time”, the wife and I are in the midst of re-watching Breaking Bad, the methamphetamine-based series. It’s been years since we originally saw it and we are noticing a lot that we missed the first time. Remarkable that the narrative can simultaneously make us cheer for the wayward but desperate Walter White while vividly showing the horrors of addiction.

    The jury’s still out on marijuana – some say over-use causes paranoia.

      Perhaps we could start up another group. Rochelle is already busy being housemother to this one. Would you be available to be Dominatrix to a bunch, handing out weekly prompts like ‘Alternate Uses For A Leash’ or ‘Doing It Doggy Style’??! 😉 😆
