There is a reason ‘that is a good’ one if you ask me. Your neighbors know you best.
I love my neighbors. They are all human to me, I see them daily, see they all have to shovel the drive way, know we all pay our taxes, deal with domestic bliss and try to keep our kids safe. Wave, smile, a friendly hello... off we go.
My neighbors have my back and I theirs. I once saw a car go through my neighbors fence! The person tried to leave and I told them forget it! It was allot of damage. I saw a teen jump a fence into a neighbors yard and take something, I phoned him, he confronted the teen in the act. Just being a teen. I’ve returned lost pets and kids! I have also had the pleasure of teaching many kids over the years and don’t get me started on Halloween! LOL Over the years I have gone to my neighbors for sugar, batteries, propane propane, eggs, lawnmower, a vacc, many reasons over the years, locked out of my house, to give extra tomatoes, sell Halloween kitties door to door..
(I have returned the favors with art over the years.)
I especially like to keep an eye on the elders. ;-) I have stopped a bit of school ‘walk home bullying’ over the years ;-( so sad. One little guy I had to drive home he was so afraid. I live between 2 elementary schools. I have had people say I should mind my business. PLEASE my neighbors and kids are my business! I do mind my business, I have never called the cops on a neighbor. We all have our parties, we all get loud from time to time, we all aggravate each other, so what. That is life, but living side by side like any good relationship we have to; not sweat the small stuff.
LOL one of my neighbors has been learning electric guitar (say no more..) BUT we heard him this spring and we all commented - Hey! He’s getting better, and all laughed. Thank God. I’m even looking forward to the electric guitar this summer ;)
So.. say you smell Cannabis from next door. SO WHAT? Do you know your neighbor? Do you know what they are dealing with? Will you call the cops or will you not? I figure as long as no one is being hurt, it is not my business. An easy decision when you learn about the facts between alcohol and cannabis.
Do not judge a book by its cover or the person by the pain medication they choose!
I KNOW I have friends in HIGH places and trust me you would never think they sit back at night to enjoy a little reefer - medical or not.
I cannot make excuses for stoners or drunks. We all have that neighbor, perhaps I was one of them over the years- I had a few wild parties.. ;-) WE ALL DO!
Love thy neighbor have their back! Don’t judge them over a smell.
Kinda like judging someone over curry, coffee or CIGARS! < YUK.
Are we not being judged enough by the world as it is?
Are we not entitled to enjoy our homes, and NOT have to stress about what
eases our pain?
Many people who smoke cannabis medically and recreationally are far from STONERS or bad people. You never know what goes on behind closed doors.
Smelling Cannabis should be the least of some peoples worries.
