My dad who was an avid pro marijuana died of stage 4 cancer. One day at the hospice we were sitting in his room shoot in the shit when I said "dad you know, you have known I smoked for a while, I was wondering if you wanted to smoke this here joint with your son". He stopped and smiled and said "under these circumstances I find that appropriate". I wheeled him outside on a big porch overlooking a beautiful lake. This is where we usually came to smoke cigs, but this time it would be our good old friend marry Jane. We had deep conversations about life and what it would be like after death. After about a hour I wheeled him back in,both of us smelling like a pound , and the nurse stopped us and smiled and said"I'll bring you two a few cups of ice cream and some soda". When I went home that night I fell asleep with all of the thought and memories of being with my dad that night. I was awoken at 4:01 am by my mom telling me he died. I love you dad and when I get to wherever you went we will do it all again.

So glad you got that opportunity! I lost my stepmom to cancer, and all I wanted to do was smoke with her because I think it would have really helped her but she was super anti-marijuana..

Replying here to get higher. My Dad died of cancer just 3 weeks ago in a hospice. He was in a pain killer induced coma to make it more comfortable for him. I wish I could have shared a beautiful moment with him like that. 3 days before this, my brother died in his bed. I miss them both. 2 bivhta ago, I dreamed I was smoking with my passed brother for the fictional first time. the next night I dreamed we were all at a barbeque. Just remember, where they're at, drugs are useless. They're on a 24/7 high to their hearts content

I'm on the same page with you guys. My dad died 2 weeks ago of stage 4 lung cancer. Im only 18 but that shit was fucked up, but I did manage to smoke with him about a year ago an we went to a Pink Floyd concert. It's those kind of memories that keep him alive in my heart.

My mom passed away to cancer too. I will never step foot into a hospice again unless another loved one is in there of course. The memories from hospices are always way too bittersweet (if that's a good word for it). She told me one day, "Never forget who you are and who you want to be. The way you behave when you think no one is looking is your true test of character." Remember that.

It later felt like I was lied to. I didn't realize... and this is life changing... it's the same as pulling the plug... :/ I thought possibly they were trying to get him better.. How do I morn two people!?! It hasn't set so great.
EDIT: I also realized why Mom made sure I didn't leave for college.

EDIT:And that it wasn't me that he wanted to wait for. His youngest son... who left a state away because it was too hard to see.. I have to live with that...

This is so awesome to me. I'm sorry for your loss, but this anecdote is just beautiful. My dad is worthless and my step dad isn't much better. I've never really had a positive male role model in my life, so I could never experience what you have. Just the thought that he was holding on, waiting for that one last perfect moment with his son, so he could finally rest and move on, its awesome man. If I weren't at work right now I'd burn one up for that.

I'm thinking that same thing as of right now. Maybe one day my dad might do the same. :)

This is touching , I'm so happy you talked to your dad about life and death before he passed away. To actually have feedback from him about his own death is a privilege not many people experience. Just to remind you, even if people and relationships change, it doesn't mean the memories that were made change at all. It was beautiful to read this story.

They found the cancer when it was 2 late and he was stage 4,and I live in Florida so no MM. Its OK tho I've accepted the fact that he's gone, well not gone, more like on a different plane of existence.
