OldHippie, as he’s known on /r/trees, is a father of two boys and thankfully living in California where all this kind of thing is legal. He started smoking marijuana in 1967 in high school, experimented with mind-expanding drugs of all kinds, and then straightened out 15 or so years later to become an airplane pilot. After being diagnosed with depression in 2000, he lost his job and most of the following decade to prescription medications (such as antidepressants) which sapped his energy and will. Finally, a chance conversation with a friend led to a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana (MMJ). This changed his entire life, health, and outlook for the better.
This blog is his continuing story. It’s also his way to provide experienced advice on using medical marijuana effectively and responsibly, as well as advocacy, activism, and support for others.
P.S. I am not Dave Schultz.
P.P.S. I am not just an old hippie. I’m deliberately keeping my “resumé” here somewhat obscure, but I think you can tell I have a classic academic background and that I’ve been writing for quite a while.
