    New PSA – Who Would You Rather Your Kids Talk to About Drugs?

    Misinformation about marijuana, from programs such as DARE, distort our children’s understanding of the real world ramifications of marijuana use. It is up to the parents to have a rational conversation with their kids, educate them, and help them to make the right decisions. Legalizing marijuana demystifies the substance, moves it from the street corner to behind the counter, and creates safer communities free of uncontrolled drug violence and circulation. Please watch and share our latest public service announcement.

      Does this really matter? God gave us 2 ears but only one mouth in hoping that we will hear twice as much as we speak,yet few are listening. There are twice as many ears than people in the govt and still know one is willing to just listen. So why the need for 2 eyes if we refuse to see? are we as a country a corpse?

      I know exactly what to say to my child about weed. I think Id do a better job explaining this than a school teacher or councelor.

      I have medical problems which requires pain meds, my dr sent me to pain management and they put me on morphine 3 times a day and lyrica twice a day and then weeks later i had to take a urine test and they called me and said that my urine tested positive for marijuana and if it happens again they will not give meds anymore. I am a stoner since I was 19 yrs old and I am 61 now. This does not make any sense to me that they would want me to be on all those heavy duty drugs and i can’t smoke weed. I went off the morphine cold turkey and was really sick but i got thru it. I will not give up smoking weed for some dr who doesn’t know me or anything about my life. I have no appetite because of my abdominal problems unless i smoke weed. I live in PA and they told me i cannot get medical marijuana because it is illegal. My choice is stop smoking weed for narcotics. I cannot go back to this dr because my urine tests will always test positive for marijuana. Am i theI only one that thinks this crazy or what?

      In my school they told us marijuana is safe, but just don’t tell anyone they said so. All I know is, it isn’t anyone’s job to lie to children.

    6. txpeloton says:

      Kids, ask the DARE people why the definition of marijuana is 104 words long. Ask them what is right about that definition. Ask them what is the difference between cannabis and marijuana. Tell them that this simple definition of marijuana actually shows respect for our Constitution.

      16. The term ‘marijuana’ means all parts
      of the smoke produced by the combustion
      of the plant Cannabis sativa L.

    7. I would teach my child that each and every single thing is a tool. We must know how people use these tools in every where, to better understand how to use it.
