scottydoesntknow: gopher321: ...said Mom & Dad as they finished their gin &tonic and scotch respectively...Don't forget the prescription pills like Prozac to treat the anxiety of talking to your kids about drugs (or gays).
Sybarite: Marijuana killed my father and raped my mother!
I LEARNED IT FROM YOU, DAD! ALRIGHT! I LEARNED IT BY WATCHING YOU!!!
CapeFearCadaver: I LEARNED IT FROM YOU, DAD! ALRIGHT! I LEARNED IT BY WATCHING YOU!!!
oh_please: 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!
basemetal: 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.
Jubeebee: -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.
Weaver95: We are increasingly concerned that regular or daily use of marijuana is robbing many young people of their potential to achieve and excel in school or other aspects of life," said Dr. Nora D. Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, which is part of NIH. Translation - f*cking NORML, we need to outlaw those sons of biatches! how DARE they go around telling kids the truth! we have to scare 'em while they're young or they'll never listen to our bullshiat ever again!
SuperTramp: Imagine everyone with that same, monotone voice, man.
snocone: How can the truth about pot be supressed for 80 years and the plans for a thermonuclear device be on the internet?
NkThrasher: ...Wait, which teenagers believed that it was dangerous* still?* as in 'any more dangerous than alcohol'
Optimus Primate: 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?
scottydoesntknow: 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.
Nadie_AZ: 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.
Day_Old_Dutchie: Jubeebee: -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.
