My Grandmother Ethyl is such a wild character, I’ve been dying to tell you all about her.
She recently turned ninety various years old, & is as active as she ever has been.
Over the last few months I have spent a lot of time with her, writing down her memories so she has something to pass on. My family grew up poor, so there weren’t a lot of pictures or family heirlooms, but ethyl wanted to document the story of her family, & I decided to help her with it. The largest surprise was that Ethyl pulled her family out of poverty with cannabis farming. I had never thought about it before, but throughout the history of our nation, cannabis has been present the entire time! Native Americans used cannabis often, just love they did with tobacco, & pot has been smoked since the country was founded. Ethyl knew this decades ago, & started quietly farming marijuana plants to sell to her friends & neighbors. After just a few months she was selling cannabis to middle-men who were selling it all around the state. The two of us genuinely traced it all out on an old map, so I could see how far her cannabis distribution routes went! Grandma Ethyl wasn’t just a humble cannabis farmer, she was some kind of queenpin! There is no question this book is going to be sensational, because she has so various wonderful cannabis stories for it! The final surprise was that after all these years, Ethyl still tends a garden, & still grows her own personal cannabis.
