Although my son sort of agreed with him, he still didn’t appreciate his son talking to me that way
The first time I went to Las Vegas, NV, I was surprised to see all the signs on the sidewalk that said no smoking on the streets. Apparently many people didn’t think smoking included smoke marijuana. Every place you looked, there were people walking around with marijuana cigarettes in their hands. There were people walking around with vape pens and many of them that were openly using any kind of marijuana possible. When I looked at the sign that said it was illegal to use marijuana in public, I had to laugh. There was a group of close to ten people who were standing right under the street sign and they were all smoking and visibly high. My son thought it was a kind of funny, but I worried about this generation of people and how easy it was to ignore the law. I knew I should keep my mouth shut, but when my grandson joined them in using marijuana on the street, I yelled at him. I told him to look at the signs and know they were the law in Las Vegas, NV. He told me I was old-fashioned, and he was going to smoke pot in public if he wanted to. Although my son sort of agreed with him, he still didn’t appreciate his son talking to me that way. Maybe I am old-fashioned, but the law is the law, whether it is for jay walking or smoking marijuana in public. They taught me to follow the law, and not abuse it, but I’m from a different generation.
