The New Weed

One weekend when we had a burn pile going, Larry tossed in some of the large marijuana weeds from nearby. When our son, Perry, who was helping us that weekend, realized what he had been inhaling, he started getting upset about it. I couldn’t figure out what the big deal was about smelling a little marijuana, but he explained he was concerned about his job. He teaches high school reading at Boys Town in Omaha and is subject to random drug testing. He worried he might fail!
For us, marijuana is just an invasive weed that we have to keep mowing off and whacking out of the fence rows. It reminds me of a quote by Robert M. Pyle. “But make no mistake: the weeds will win; nature bats last.”
