Here in Arizona we have passed a recreational usage cannabis bill. My day job is now as a budtender and I am awaiting paperwork for my facility agent card to process with the State. I have been working with cannabis as a medicine since 2004. I would not say I used it in a sacred manner until I started expressing gratitude to Ma Gu the Hemp Maiden. I feel we can all easily thank her after each toke for making it feel, for a moment, as if we received a birthday gift.
