Ya know, so what if mom and dad enjoy a hit every now and then. I mean come on Junior, they put a roof over your head and food on your plate.

Is a little gratitude too much to ask for, without going to narc to the feds?

It's not exactly like they were running a meth lab in the basement.

That's what you get for betraying your kin.

"Even if it's happening in their own home with their own parents, they understand that's a dangerous situation because of what we're teaching them,"

Except that a lot of times it's not a dangerous situation, yet you teach them it is, undermining the authority of some good parents (who happen prefer weed over wine). It's certainly less dangerous than many alcoholic parents. I've never heard of anyone that gets "angry stoned."

The way they run those DARE lessons, as far as the kid knew it was the exact same thing.

Ok. So pot, meth, crack, ice, heroin = same thing.

And we wonder why we graduate so many retards.

That's a good little Junior Spy. Big Brother will be proud.

It's also why DARE is so horribly ineffective at keeping kids away from those drugs that might present a serious danger. They try pot, and they go, "Hey! My face didn't melt off! I didn't immediately rape every sentient being (and some livestock) within a 10 mile radius! They lied! What else did they lie about?" So what's to stop them from smoking meth? It certainly can't be as addictive as the portly sheriff's deputy said.

Has anyone done any long term study on DARE's effectiveness? Because teaching kids "pot, meth and heroin are all the same" could have some negative consequences when the kids later learn how bad pot really isn't.

My exact thought. For all that we regularly demonize the Nazis, we sure do love co-opting their methodology.

rofl, guess the parents should have kept that activity a little more secretive, huh.
 
2010-10-17 01:24:19 PM  
Nearly all children nowadays were horrible. What was worst of all was that by means of such organizations as the Spies they were systematically turned into ungovernable little savages, and yet this produced in them no tendency whatever to rebel against the discipline of the Party. On the contrary, they adored the Party and everything connected with it... All their ferocity was turned outwards, against the enemies of the State, against foreigners, traitors, saboteurs, thought-criminals. It was almost normal for people over thirty to be frightened of their own children.

Or just teach Junior a little more respect that what he's shown.

Actually this was my first thought. I don't happen to smoke pot, but if I did, I would NOT let my daughter be aware of that in any way, shape or form.
 
2010-10-17 02:01:45 PM  
I wrote an essay on my mother's smoking habit for DARE. Was supposed to read it in front of the whole grade's parents and everything.

Couldn't figure out at the time why my mom wasn't happy for me, or why she was so thrilled when the assembly got canceled due to snow.

So, so tired of the war on pot. FFS.

Maybe he'll be placed with parents who are just as uptight as he is.

And to think we used to mock the Soviet-bloc nations for turning people into informants against their neighbors and relatives.

Well, we also used to mock them for having secret prisons and using torture too. After that, this shouldn't be a surprise.

Enjoy you new foster family kid...

As stupid as the law is it is the law. If you're going to violate it you should at least have the decency to be discrete about it until your brood is old enough to understand better.
 
2010-10-17 03:56:35 PM  
stupid. i just stole my parent's pot to smoke.

then one day the normal bag is gone, and a bag full of yellowish sad looking homegrown is there with a note "Smoke this, you slimy bastard" (i'm a girl, btw)

so, that was fun, looking for the new hidey hole.

well, off to hit my head against the wall until i un-remember my childhood again.

will this make for an awkward thanksgiving?
 
2010-10-17 03:58:49 PM  
I'm thinking the kid is a goodie two shoes that didn't realise the harm of doing the right thing. That, or the kid was angry because his parents took away his Xbox and figured this was a good way at punishing them.

You have a moral imperative to disobey unjust laws.*

*This moral imperative does not exempt you from ramifications, however.

Many, and it ain't pretty (new window). In fact, the Department of Education will not allow its funds to be used for DARE because it is so ineffective.

But the point of DARE is not drug prevention. It's goal is to make kids like, and obey, cops. And, interestingly, that is the only consistently reported accomplishment of the program.

Yes. DARE is ineffective, and in some instances studies have shown a rise in drug/alcohol abuse.

_ "Down with Big Brother!" Yes, I said that! Said it over and over again, it seems. Between you and me, old man, I'm glad they got me before it went any further. Do you know what I'm going to say to them when I go up before the tribunal? "Thank you," I'm going to say, "thank you for saving me before it was too late."
_ 'Who denounced you?' said Winston.
_ 'It was my little daughter,' said Parsons with a sort of doleful pride. 'She listened at the keyhole. Heard what I was saying, and nipped off to the patrols the very next day. Pretty smart for a nipper of seven, eh? I don't bear her any grudge for it. In fact I'm proud of her. It shows I brought her up in the right spirit, anyway.'

They have even stopped claiming its about prevention and now claim its just about AWARENESS.. lols.

Abstinence only education and DARE, two failed programs we continue to fund despite overwhelming data. Maybe we are a Christian Nation.

The authority of some "good " parents who obviously have no problem showing their children that they think the law is just a suggestion to be followed only when one feels like it?

The Duke of Sheh informed Confucius, saying, "Among us here there are those who may be styled upright in their conduct. If their father have stolen a sheep, they will bear witness to the fact."

Confucius said, "Among us, in our part of the country, those who are upright are different from this. The father conceals the misconduct of the son, and the son conceals the misconduct of the father. Uprightness is to be found in this."

Ha ha. As the foster parent of an infant that tested positive for cocaine (her mother breast-fed her), fark you. Kid was wired when we picked her up from DSS and had withdrawals the first night.

/She's doing fine now.

Yeah, they had cops come in to my school when I was a kid and told everyone they should turn in anyone they know smoking pot.

Fortunately I wasn't so brainwashed as to listen to the pigs and hurt my loving parents and possibly end up in a foster home just so the damn cops can make some extra money.

Is that really what people prefer? That armed law enforcement officers come into schools so they can shake down children for information?

You too eh? My old man loved to confiscate from the kids directly into his stash; better stuff then he'd typically get otherwise.
