Apple. Think about driver's education and safe sex, and pregnancy--or even drug education--"say no to drugs."for young people, I worry that it will have unintended consequences for too many, who are not being told the whole truth, good and bad.

While I am not disputing the need for all of this education (how could I, it's smart and necessary), these kids will do as they please--until they themselves really understand and accept the responsibility to curb the dangers of their behaviors and the risk to which they expose others, let alone themselves.
And for our own kids, in so many of them there seems to be an underlying lack of their own value and their need to make choices to enhance it, rather than degrade it.
I agree with every word you write, Apple, in each of your posts. Just a plant, not a drug. Those are exactly the words used by my son.just another plant
I agree with your post for the most part and you certainly have got me thinking.I came up through the 60's so you can guess which side I'm on. This is something we did all the time and I never once saw anyone who was harmed by it. No auto accidents, no fights, no marriages destroyed, no families torn apart by pot like mine was by alcohol! Yet one is legal, the other is not! And I don't want to hear the "gateway" argument! It's no more of a "gateway" to harder things than drinking milk or Dr. Pepper is a gateway to being an alcoholic! Pure BS
