I would like to convince my wife to try cannabis just once. She’s a light social smoker and drinker, but has never done any other kind of psychoactive drug. Moreover, she is from a country with a very strict anti-drug culture, so she’s not familiar with the way Americans are typically dismissive about weed smoking. I, on the other hand, was a steady smoker for about 5 years. I am on an extended break at the moment, but am itching to start again. My wife knows that I used to be a toker, and doesn’t have a problem with it. However, she is against me starting again. This is something I want to share with her. I feel like it would bring us closer and also be a lot of fun. I brought a tiny amount home, less than a nickel’s worth. But she freaked out when I showed it to her, and made me flush it. Anything I said to try to convince her was said to be ‘pressure.’ I don’t want to pressure her, but I also really want her to just try it. The thing is I hate lying to her, so I’m certainly not going to smoke behind her back. Have any of you managed to change someone’s mind?
