Kids and cannabis, for the most part, don’t mix, or do they? It wasn’t long ago that people openly and regularly smoked cigarettes around kids, and many still do. People drink beer, wine, and liquor around kids all the time. Go to any major sporting event or concert, and you’re sure to find alcohol and children. A lot of people take prescription pills around children without a second thought. Yet, if you have cannabis anywhere around your child or children, you can lose them in some states. This is a sad side of the law that shows precisely who sold out, who is bought and paid for, and what groups are financing their political agenda.
Many people drink, smoke, or take their prescription drugs responsibly around children every day, so why should cannabis be any different? When parents have a cocktail, glass of whiskey, or wine or a cold beer after a day of work, and a child may ask why? The most common response is to unwind or to relax after a hard day. This should be the same with cannabis.
The Future Looks Elevated With Less Youth’s Experimenting With Cannabis
We are starting to move past decades-old draconian cannabis prohibition and into a greener future. Even If I could smoke a joint walking across the parking lot, I wouldn’t because it isn’t the responsible thing to do. Those who oppose cannabis legalization screamed that making it legal would make it easily accessible to our country’s youth and that kids’ addiction rates would rise. Wrong, in fact, states that have legal access to cannabis have seen a decline in youths using cannabis. Many kids consider it an old person drug.
These are all things we want our children to know and learn about. Cannabis isn’t just about smoking and getting high. It holds the potential of endless medical and therapeutic possibilities. Only those vested in private agendas would try to keep this knowledge from the people and from children. Oh wait, they’ve been doing that for over eight decades now since back in 1937 with the signing of the MJ Tax Act. I think it’s time for a change, don’t you?

The Manipulation is Astounding
Big Pharma, Big Tobacco, the alcohol industry, and private prison groups have manipulated today’s society into a disarray of sickness and incarceration. Meanwhile, they push, excuse me, I mean market their poison to the planet with open arms. Beer and prescription drug commercials plague television these days. It seems you can’t open a magazine without seeing an ad for a new pill that may fix something but may also cause a multitude of dangerous side effects. But this is ok and even accepted as informative marketing.
These drugs are all largely responsible for helping perpetuate addiction and even death. Yet cannabis is the demon.
Be Transparent and Give Kids the Answers They Seek
Many people believe cannabis should be kept away from kids all together. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. This is one that I’m afraid I have to disagree with. If kids see parents using cannabis, it should be no different from having a drink, a cigarette or cigar, mood stabilizers, or even painkillers. Kids should be informed and not left to wonder. This is what causes them to seek out answers on their own.
