This time I was truly innocent. I hadn't done a thing before to that effect. I definitely wasn't planning on what was going to happen next. I was twelve years of age at this point in time. I had heard about drugs through the D.A.R.E. program at schools and whispered rumors about people smoking roaches and things from my siblings and classmates and friends. I really wasn't expecting to run into them first hand.
Smoking marijuana is legal for both recreational and medical purposes in California, and that's been the case for a while. Though it is a legal marijuana state, it's important to realize that there are still a bunch of laws that govern marijuana use in California.
