I lived in rural ID before I decided to start college in WA. I was accepted to a college straight in the middle of Seattle. I was totally happy to leave for college and go to the giant city, however my parents were upset. They supported my decision to attend college in another state. I did not understand the public transportation system when I initially started college. I was from a small town with corn, potatoes, and no taxis. The only bus I was familiar with was a school bus. I tried to take the bus one morning for a job interview and I ended up in Tacoma. That was honestly the last time I used the public transportation system. I decided to take a cab or I rode my bike if I needed to go a long way. All of that changed when cannabis was eventually legalized in Seattle. It happened approximately 2 years after I started college. Everyone was happy about the legalization of cannabis and that included me. Happily, only a couple of cannabis dispensaries were legalized to sell recreational supplies. None of them were close to the place where my buddies and I went to college, so we had to take a drive each time we wanted recreational cannabis supplies. None of us had a car and an Uber cost roughly $46 the first time. After that, I rapidly was able to learn how to use the public transportation system in Seattle. Now I actually feel like a pro after only 5 years in town.. I could give anyone directions to any place in town actually using the bus or the metro station.
