Teens no longer believed marijuana was dangerous when I was a teenager

They're upset because they are afraid the stoner kids never amount to anything and end up living in their basements forever while littering the place with cheeto dust and 2L mt dew bottles.

Teens upset that parents/the media/the government have been lying to them.
 
Be honest with your kid. It's not a very dangerous drug, but it's still a drug. Seriously, this talk should mimic the alcohol talk almost exactly.
 
My parents told me they understand they can't control what I do and don't do outside of the house, but they also warned me that any consequences that came from my actions I would be dealing with myself. If I'm old enough to decide to drink a beer while underage, I'm old enough to deal with those consequences if caught.

Don't forget the prescription pills like Prozac to treat the anxiety of talking to your kids about drugs (or gays).

I still have a problem with the government telling anyone what they can or cannot do as long as they don't infringe upon others freedom.
 
2012-12-19 02:54:03 PM  
Don't lie to your kids about drugs and alcohol. They'll use that against you when they rebel. I've openly talked to my kids about why people would want to use them and what would drive someone to try keep using. School teaches doom and gloom and horrible things. But let's be honest: if you tell a kid 'don't do that' then when they get angry or rebellious they are going to do it.

I certainly wouldn't encourage kids to smoke pot OR drink...because they're probably not responsible enough to handle either.  But overall, pot IMHO is less harmful than alcohol.

She cited recently published research showing that people who used marijuana heavily before age 18 had impaired mental abilities even after they quit using the drug. Those who used cannabis heavily in their teens and into their adulthood showed a significant drop in IQ between the ages of 13 and 38, according to the studies. 
 
So, she's saying if you're going to wake and bake, then keep smoking all day, there may be problems? To the RomeroCopter!

To be fair, if your day consists of watching Spongebob Squarepants reruns and eating cheetos, your IQ will drop regardless of how much weed you smoke.

-Use of illicit drugs other than marijuana was at a low for eighth-, 10th- and 12th-grade students.
-Reported alcohol use continued to steadily decline, falling to the lowest level on record.
 

 
So a use of a drug that is not particularly addictive nor particularly harmful is increasing, while use of more harmful, more addictive drugs is decreasing.
 
This is somehow a bad thing.

This means less future income for the alcoholic beverage industry and, with the way laws are heading, less future income for the private prison industry.  We can't have that.

This shocking information is brought to you by 1965.
How can the truth about pot be supressed for 80 years and the plans for a thermonuclear device be on the internet?
It amazes me that this lie is apparently supported by the same people that out the Santa Claus or Tooth Fairy derp.
And those lies are a LOT more believable.
 
Anybody blame the media beside me?
They are trying(and succeeding) to legislate from the Televising of Mass Killing and can't even call the Drug Warriors on their bullchit???

How is the truth about pot suppressed? There are millions of websites on the internet that are pro-pot. Probably more than those for thermonuclear devices.

Dangerous? You should see some of the stuff I have done on Jack Daniels. It's lucky I am still alive. Never had anything even close with good ol' herb. Unless sitting on the couch is considered dangerous?

Your couch may be giving you cancer.
 
So you have a choice of smoking on a couch that can give you cancer, or smoking on a couch that could burn you to a crisp if you drop an ember on it.

Should be corrected to: "Teenagers no longer believe that marijuana is dangerous because they know that it's not".

All things have some inherent level of danger to them; calling something dangerous implies some risk of injury far greater than the average object, say a fork. I'd imagine the danger from marijuana is approximately on the same order as that of forks.

That's what I am doing with my kids. I treat them with respect and honesty. They respond by listening and performing their chores and staying out of trouble. They know they have the freedom to make decisions as long as they understand, and accept, the consequences.

I think it works because I have a great relationship with my kids. The only draw back is that I don't think they want to leave; my 19 year old keeps threatening to stay forever because she loves me so much. Phah!

Not just that, but if you lie about the danger's of Teh Debil's Weed!!!!! they might assume you are as equally clueless about drugs that are dangerous. And then the real shiat hits the fan.
 
2012-12-19 05:39:06 PM  
The real danger of pot (or alcohol, for that matter) is doing them a lot while too young. Don't fark with your brain chemistry while it's still developing or you're going to end up as a loser like all of those fear tactics say.

/Over 18...kindof ok
//Over 21, just fine

I think you'll find even "dense-skulled conservatives" have pretty much conceded the point. But 1985 just called and they are interested in hearing your debate points for the "Just Say No" campaign.
 
2012-12-19 05:39:58 PM  
Well, it can be. Honestly, it can depend on the person, setting, strength, and oh about a million other factors. It's not coffee. No, not nearly as cruel as my Master, Caffeine. I will never be free of my liquid brunette slavery. I have tried. And tried. And tried. I don't dislike the java jive, but it doesn't like me. It owns me.
