This is my first post on Cannabis Destiny! My name is Miss Botwin. I’m a canabis enthusiast from the east coast. The only thing that I enjoy more than smoking pot is writing about it. I’ve been writing about marijuana for about a year now. I advocate for it in any way possible, as I believe it is the sole thing that brings all different kinds of people together. As my first post, I figured I would do sort of an intro to my history with miss Mary Jane. When I was in high school, I hated the stuff. I didn’t like people who smoked it or anything that had to do with marijuana.

My parents were involved with the law so I blindly followed their “marijuana is bad because it’s bad” which seems to be the most common excuse as to the illegality of the plant. I never thought that four years out of high school, I would be a published marijuana advocate. So all throughout high school, I hated on pot. Then, in my senior year, I started dating a young man who was all about the green stuff. He wore lots of hemp necklaces, listened to the Grateful Dead, and would leave school in the midde of the day to drive down a road we called Buffalo Run to smoke blunts.

Once we started dating, it was all downhill from there. The first time I smoked… Well… Not really the clearest memory. But I will tell you that from that moment on, I was in love with Mary Jane. It wasn’t until after college that I really got in to the marijuana scene. Bad encounters with alcohol led to me believe that marijuana was the safer route. My 21st birthday was the last time that I actually drank alcohol. I began to study the plant rather than just smoke it. I’ve read the Cannabis Grow Bible at least six times at this point. Whether it was a book or on the Internet, all I wanted to do was read about marijuana. I started to network with other people who were like minded about pot and that’s when I started to write.

Since 2012 I’ve been writing constantly about marijuana and everything that goes with it. Social events, strains, user submissions, and contests. Writing about weed is my absolute passion and I want to thank Cannabis Destiny for giving me the opportunity to work with them. I look forward to writing for them and to interacting with all of you readers. As always, I am open to new ideas and topics that you want to read about because as a reader, I want you to be interested in what I have to say. I’m extremely happy to now be a part of Cannabis Destiny! Look forward to my next piece, which will be coming out soon!
