As a friend put it a few years ago, this smallish community of smaller former towns had many divisions not only by town but also by religion due to strong Irish and English influences. Then weed became the big “thing” in the 60's, many of the “gangs” started chilling out with weed and giving up on the weekend fights. So, maybe if weed was federally legal in the US the divisions may largely go up in smoke.
Yes! My theory might work then, ha! Maybe If Americans smoked as much as they drank the world would look very different right now.
I didn't realize weed has been legal in Canada for so long, I wish America would follow suit. I'm sure it'll be an on going process to get figured out, but we have to start somewhere.
Thank you for sharing!
