Anxiety and Gummy Bears, or I'd Rather Have a Hangover

I ate one half of a pineapple-flavored marijuana gummy bear last night and then walked to the year-round costume shop in my neighborhood to try on capes. I had thought cannabis might be a healthy alternative to the alcohol that I've been consuming to tolerate flying, but instead of calming my anxiety the gummy bear just made me smiley and distracted. In fact, I did not even buy a cape.
