The Boomer Weed Fiasco

Our kids live in Seattle and we grew up in the age of Aquarius. Add that together and you get two 60-year-olds and their son on a trip to Uncle Ike’s, whose toll-free number is 1–800-GET WEED.

We enjoyed smoking pot “back in the day” but abstained (and denied) until our kids were grown. If you think the fun of children ends when they’re no longer little, try receiving some stash and a tiny pipe from your son as a 55th…




Playback Memoirs is where you publish stories that make you say, “Did that really happen?” We love hearing all the painfully true stories that you would probably rather keep to yourself!
