The new trend among teens in the cities where marijuana has been legalized is to obtain some from, not a drug dealer, not a random person off the street, but from an adult instead. You might think this is something revolutionary and new to the whole buying pot industry but all one needs to do is look at the alcohol industry to understand that this would happen. Think about it this way, many members of families that had a problem with drinking would also have that problem passed down to their children. How would they obtain booze to drink, well simple, have an adult buy it for them. In this day and age kids, teens, and young adults are doing the same thing, they’re having grownups buy weed legally, and then they’re obtaining it from them.
You might think this is a moral dilemma of sorts but let’s look at the facts. Would you rather have your kids smoking pot with random strangers in dark alleys or at home with their parents? Would you rather they risk documenting their childhood inside of a prison cell because they got busted, or be at home with their parents who are taking pictures of them lighting up their first doobie? I know that if kids will want to try something nothing will stop them so they might as well do it in a safe environment.
Now that growing up, preserving memories, and cherishing our gifts of life with one another are so common place, it’s no mystery to us that some people want to preserve these life events while they are baked off some cannabis. You don’t have to fit the stereotypical bud smoker persona to get high, in fact some people learn how to make weed tea and drink that to get buzzed. As far as we’re concerned, we just want to make sure our children are safe and not engaging in contact with pot heads who are deemed not suitable for our child’s life. So lets all take a lesson from the page of puff the magic dragon and realize we need to educate and inform the youth about the dangers, risks, and benefits of using ganja either on a daily basis, as a one time thing, or habitually throughout all of life.
