I was raised in a “cannabis positive” household as a child. I dabbled as a teenager and in my 20’s. However, as an asthmatic I distanced myself from regular use to preserve my lungs. I had a deep respect for the plant and was aware of how it could take you to amazingly creative spaces or the polar opposite.
