Teens will be teens. If they're gonna use any controlled substance, they should put the syringe down and learn how to smoke a blunt. Sure, it's a "drug," but it's a f***ing herb. And it isn't making our kids drop like flies, now is it? Hell, I'd rather my child smoked pot than even consume alcohol for Christ's sake. What is driving the curiosity of kids in this generation? Heroin is a death sentence. And this is the message that needs to be broadcasted to the youth of this community.

You are a winner are you not? Your "blunt" is a step stone to "better" drugs. By letting your kids start with weed, you're increasing their risk of doing coke, meth etc.

Just to let you know that they now lace the weed with small amounts of coke so you go back to them and they slowly get you hooked on coke. So you might want to go back to the drawing board on that theory.

Maybe if more parents taught respect for the law rather than contempt for it, kids would not feel so free to step over the line to try any type of illegal drug.

I am always perplexed by the well intentioned parents who allow underage drinking "as long as it is in my home" or make excuses for the use of a lesser illegal drug. When they end up bailing their kids out of jail, they scratch their heads and ask "where did I go wrong"?

Ignoring the lesson of the law when you educate your children opens the door to trouble. If you pick and choose what laws you wish to follow, so will they.

I'm so tired of anti pot people. It will soon be legal like Washington and I will sit on the porch blowing smoke rings.
I stand corrected.

Wait 'til they tell you you belong to them.

So suggest legalizing heroin? Really? I'm sure that will solve the issue.

I dont know your upbringing, but my father was an addict. My dad ALWAYS preached to me about NEVER drinking alcohol, if I had to have a vice, smoke weed.( 20+ yrs ago)
I am older now and my father passed long ago.
When I was a teen, I stayed away from drinking... I did smoke weed. Stayed productive with school, working, etc.
By the time I was hitting the bars, thats when the 'hardcore' drugs started sounding good. Never once did I sit on my couch and think, "Hmm, lets try doing a bump!"
To blame cops for kids getting on drugs is a cop out. Parents see their kids more than any cop out there. YOU as a parent need to be more diligent on watching your kids!
I have 3 teen sons myself, and every time they come home I look for any signs of Any drug/drinking use.
Judge me if you will, but I also preach to my kids that if they Have to have a vice, weed is better than anything. No pills, no hardcore drugs, no drinking... My oldest son is a Master Sergent for JROTC, my middle is Honor Roll as a freshman and my youngest is on honor roll. All stay away from drugs. Maybe its the fact that I am open to discuss the situation with them, or maybe even letting them know how life was for me dealing with an addict. I am not sure, but responsibility starts at home.

At what point does it become the gateway? I have been a daily smoker (night time, home, all responsibilities are finished) for about 20 years. You couldn't pay me to try coke, pills, or heroin. I don't even drink a lot because of how it makes me feel and act. I've probably smoked 3 whole cigarettes in my entire life. Light up a little grass and watch some tv. Who am I really hurting?

Do I deserve to spend time in jail, costing taxpayers thousands of dollars a year? Or would you prefer me to continue to pay $20-30k a year in taxes?

Of course, I can only speak for myself. I'm sure people have moved on from cigarettes to beer to weed to coke to meth and become a drain to society. If your theory is correct Cigarettes and Alcohol are both gateway drugs too.

I say let all those losers overdose and die. They are just burdens on society. We are better off without them.
