“Weed stopped my heart (literally), but building up the courage to try it again allowed me to face my worst anxieties.” Did my first edible at a Model United Nations conference, senior year of high school. I was a late bloomer when it came to weed — I had “smoked” here and there for the sake of impressing various boyfriends and Grindr hookups — but I tended to err on the side … [Read more...] about Seeking (Edible) Arrangements, “I was going to like weed again”
My edible days stretch, hazily back to the seeds and stems years of the 1970s, where we’d cook down an entire ounce of weak-ass weed in a couple of cubes of butter. Strictly for medicinal purposes, of course: I had tight knees, and I needed to make them buckle. Tight hips too, and I needed to make them wobble.
