Ohio is in the process of putting the legalization of pot on the ballot in November. I am so against this for obvious reasons but wondered how others feel. I have heard the arguments for legalization and I've tried to make myself believe them because this seems to be inevitable. But how do we convince our kids that using pot is not OK when all around them they see it is becoming acceptable? I listen to the reports that say pot is not a gateway drug and yet every addict I have heard speak says the opposite. I get that many people can use pot responsibly but I have seen so many young people who have gone on to harder drugs. None of the kids my daughter hung with in high school who used pot only used pot. They all used other drugs too. I am really torn by this and running out of arguments.
