My mom came to visit me for the first time last month.
I have been living in California for the past six years, but my mom never wanted to get on a plane and come to my location.
When the pandemic occurred, a lot of things changed. My mom decided to get it on an airplane to come visit me. She flew into the airport at San Francisco, but I live about an hour north in Petaluma. My mom was really excited to see San Francisco, so we spent a couple of days visiting the tourist attractions like the wharf, Alcatraz Island, and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. While my mom and I were at the wharf, we tried some of the clam chowder. We were sitting near the edge of the and my mom started to smell marijuana. She was complaining that someone was smoking weed. I tried to explain to my mom that marijuana is legal in this city and state, but it was difficult to make my mom understand since she is from a very small town in the middle of the bible belt. Since my mom was upset by the smell of marijuana, I thought it was best for us to leave the wharf and go home for the day. I decided not to share with my mom the fact that I have been using recreational marijuana as well. After seeing her reaction to the smell of marijuana on our trip to San Francisco, it seems like that is something I will keep secret for a few more years.
