What you should be embarass you is the amount of everybody (not just kids) who pick a collage of annoying brand names to plaster all over themselves like human NASCAR vehicles. A good (if slightly dated) book on why this is actually a matter of societal decay can be read in Naomi Klein's excellent history of advertising and branding called "No Logo."

Long hair never hurt anybody. At least it is an outgrowth of being human. Some defective cultural requirement that tells people they need to wear those hideous "tap out," or "Fox racing," or "Abercrombie" costumes are celebrating the outgrowth of consumerism run amok.

What is worse, they are wearing what amounts to exploitation on their bodies, with logos, brands and symbolism alluding to this asinine balkinzation of differing "styles" and "looks."

Those kids are skaters, and they aren't dirty, so why does it matter? It's not what I would prefer for my child, but teens have been expressing themselves with their hair forever. Check out the 50s 60s 70s, well u get it. KT I agree with what u said but don't think it applies in this instance. Those kids are wearing everything name brand from head to toe!

nothing is wrong with being a hippy. I am what society would call a new age hippy. I have short hair, and i shower daily. When I have kids I would love for them to express their personalities through their style. We don't need a bunch of robots running around looking the same and acting the same.

I do not see any posts condoning the actions of these kids. I see an adult atacking the way these kids dress, and calling them hippies like it is a bad thing. And if there are 12,13,14 year old kids smoking, thats the parents fault. Obviously they know if they are doing it in public. Salamanca is a very small town, and I know if my parents caught me smoking at that age I woulda got my ass whooped. So don't go off on a rant for no reason at all.

When era did you grow up in?
Kids have always expressed themselves, usually not breaking the law,(seriously that is)
or generally bothering others. If these kids are hanging out around one area then at least
they are known where they are and, easier to be kept in check, if necessary. I agree its a problem for for the parents to police their children and not society, think about it, kids have been smoking forever, especially when they knew they could get away with it! The parents should pay attention to their children, one way is to be there when they get home, have a CONVERSATION with them so they know that their young adult isn't smoking, drinking or whatever, instead of watching TV or not caring that their kid is home. Then when their kid is arrested, or worse off killed, the parent will claim that their child were decent kids, brought up in a family environment and never did anything wrong and they raised them correctly, no, it was the PARENTS who didn't raise themselves correctly. Kids will be kids, spend some time with them, know where they may be, hell most of the parents don't now their kids has a skate boards! Here's another idea, don't text your child to ask where they are CALL THEM, get a sense where they are or, what there doing via the background noise and, parents should know their children well enough, wether to know if their their lying from their voice responses and voice reflection, that is if you raised them properly. Heck if they are wearing their hair long the only gripe you may have is the extra cost of shampoo.

Why? Pot head kids never hurt anybody. How about pharm soaked geriatrics behind the wheels of their cars and the excuse of their prescriptions?

Dumb ass, give me a break! Some of these pot head KIDS, no mater what color their skin is
have grown up to be respectable, hard working decent parents who taught their children the rights and wrongs because, they were there and did that, I was! Tell me a kid who hasn't tried an alcoholic beverage or a hit from a bong, and I'll either call you a lier or, this kid was one of a very minority that didn't. Kid's who have the aforementioned will be in the position to make a decision, their decision to continue on a path that they know isn't correct or, become one of the pot heads you refer to.
Kids aren't as stupid as you think!

More like an ignorant view pervasive to anti-drug warriors who like to pretend dated, and scientifically disproven myths like "pot makes you lazy" and "pot kills brain cells" are gospel to be taken seriously.

Has anyone done a medical study involving; cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption or marijuana usage to see what effects are more harmful to the human body?
It would be interesting to see, if alcohol or cigarettes are found to kill or disease more people; would they have reasons to outlaw their usage?
Alcohol can kill when not used responsibly, or over a long life time. Cigarette usage has showed to kill over a lengthly period of time but not the short term. Marijuana usage when used inappropriately,
could kill in a short term if mismanaged like alcohol or prescribed medicines, meanwhile it hasn't had any proven long term effect on the human body, and has been prescribed by doctors!
The idea that pot usage will lead a person to experiment with a more deadly drug like heroin, etc., would that mean that a beer drinker would try a shot or rum? A once of alcohol is an ounce of alcohol no mater the drink, its the flavor which is added but like heroin it can be abused even if not "moved onto" after beer, at its the same.
So, if pot was proven not to be harmful if used responsibly; then why should it be illegal?

Are u serious? I was one of those so called "potheads" in school. Now that I'm older I have a respectable job and all the things one one would consider successful that come with it. There are so many closet smokers in this town it's not funny! I haven't smoked in years cuz my job prohibits me to do so but you can bet your sweet arss that I would love to just kick back n toke! There's so much bigger problems in this town other than pot! I'm only saying kids will be kids and experiment but just cuz they were labeled as this or that doesn't mean that's their lifes destiny.
