Dear Dr. Aaron,
My friends and family keep telling me I am way too old for my preferred activities. I told them I would really like to get high, and my grandkids almost passed out. I’m still not sure why? Skydiving has been on my bucket list since I was a kid. I think maybe they do not expect a grandpa to use current slang. Are there any medical reasons why I shouldn’t “get high?”
Looking forward to your approval,
Getting high in Missouri
Dear Getting high,
Slang is hard to keep up with!! I once saw a quote on a church sign- “A goal without a plan is little more than a wish” Having goals and accomplishing them is a vital part of our life. If you are medically fit and follow good safety protocols I say jump out of that plane- paint the picture- ride that rodeo horse- sail a boat- follow your dreams! Now this business about getting high, with the changes in legislation medicinal herbs are easily acquired, I prefer to treat patients with traditional methods and leave the “getting high prescriptions” to those who know better than me.
Do not forget the parachute!
Always here for you, Dr. Aaron
