Rekindled interest in pot reaches all-time high among middle-aged
Parents, babysitters, friends and wives and wives' friends in their 40-somethings all seek to rediscover their youth as they join the rising trend of ‘passing the koutchie’ openly
Here’s a question I did not expect to be mulling in middle age: should I smoke pot?
I might not even consider it if so many people were not asking me. There were the parents on the front porch after the party while somebody paid the babysitter inside; there was the wife of the friend I had not seen in years, offering me her “pen” as a matter of courtesy soon after pointing out her children (How they’ve grown!); and my wife’s friend from graduate school sitting in our garden after dinner. All of them offering me pot!
