After multiple days of failing to figure out my next Cannapages musing, I decided to ask my Twitter Family for suggestions. I got a lot of wonderful ideas but the one that really hit me came from @OpossumFather.
He suggested I write about the best strain for dealing with all the crap 2020 has thrown at us.
I personally think for we would need a tool box full of a few different strains depending on what we need at the moment. I mean seriously, the world has a serious case of schizophrenia going on and it would be unfair to ask one strain to help you through all this caca.
My favorite author is Sir Terry Pratchett and we could all learn so much about societal issues by exploring his Discworld. Studying the government of Ankh-Morpork could be very beneficial and offer some creative solutions in these troubling times.
A city where there is a guild for everything. Yes, everything is a profession ruled by guilds that have principles, ethics and regulations. Not adhering to them came with consequences.
Like the “Thieves Guild,” where it is frowned upon to steal from the poor. Why? Well duh, that’s just rude. After all wealthy people can afford to replace what the thieves steal, they have insurance. Stealing from the poor--who don’t have insurance or the ability to replace it--just makes you an ass, and is not tolerated at the guild.
The “Beggars Guild” works with beggars and businesses to keep beggars out of sight and disgust of their patrons. Imagine businesses keeping the homeless beggars out of sight and mind for the more affluent population. That way people don’t know there is a homeless problem.
There is no murder in Ankh-Morpork that isn’t sanctioned by the “Assassins Guild” and no murder is done for free or without appropriate cause. It’s all on the up and up, completely legal.
Is there still crime in Ankh-Morpork? Well of course, no system is perfect but what little crime is committed, the wonderful City Watch will take care, if the guild leaders don’t get to the perpetrators first.
Now how the heck did I get started on Terry Pratchett when I was trying to answer a question about best strain for the craziness we call life right now? Because as I look around the world today, well mainly the USA, I feel like I am in the middle of a Discworld story gone completely sideways. Please oh please, let our "Death" ride a horse name Binky and have such a wonderful sense of tact and humor.
At this moment there is one strain I would highly suggest in my 2020 Potemic Toolkit: Banana Mints. Little is on the web about this strain. One site claims it’s Indica. My dispensary called it a hybrid and it hits like a hybrid. I think probably 60/40 Indica dominant if not 50/50. This strain gave me the ability to deal with Thing 2’s political debates with calm and clear, well-thought-out counter arguments. Seriously I mopped the floor with his sassy, thinks he knows everything teenage butt.
All I can say is times like these I am so damn glad I am a friggin squirrel. You humans got issues!
