Prepare for the opposition to all the ballot issues in Colorado concerning cannabis. They always drag out the pandering arguement of the children of Colorado being in danger somehow from someone they know's possession of some small amounts or even large amounts of cannabis. Colorado has recently been ordered to make up for years of under funding k-12 education around the state. Colorado also spends $32,000 a year to incarcerate a felon compared to $6300 per child to educate them! Where are our priorities? And, worse, where does that leave a generation of our kids?? Use your imagination. As an educator myself, I do not condem any one for ignorence or lack of participation, but rather I condem those in power who withhold education for their own elitist agendas.
If peeps think their kids don't know they use cannabis (like they have not confronted the issue) they're crazy. Your kid is only confused as to why he is being excluded from a big part of your life. I DO NOT MEAN SECOND HAND SMOKE HERE PEOPLE OR HANDING YOUR KID A JOINT, but people are using and have access to other means of delivery that does not pollute the household. But to embrace criminality/guilt and not reveal the use of the sacred herb, in my opinion, does a disservice to your relationship. Even if there is a law about my possession of cannabis, I am respectful of others sensibility and only use in my own home since I was 21; legally now in Colorado, especially Denver. WHO WANTS TO GET BUSTED...2 OZS a misdemeanor in Colorado today (1oz since 1976!).
I am not a criminal nor did I ever buy in to it...40 plus years of very bad, racially motivated laws and their zealots that have tried just about everything to stop peeps from imbibing in the safest psychoactive experience on earth, much less silence some of us!
