I too would like to see alcohol and marijuana treated more equally as vices that need control somehow. Add gambling as another.
But first I'd rather address the need for people to get a handle on their honesty and responsibilities.
Too late! Of utmost importance is our right to be worthless freeloaders. If you wanna be a junkie, who am I to want to stop you? What government has the right to take away that choice?
I wonder, What is YOUR reputation worth? When's the last time you thought real hard about that, and asked a young person to?
My job is to teach kids how to be better people than what my parents encouraged me to be. That's all I exist for any more.
We start by learning to set goals, and practicing it, and learning to set reasonable goals by reaching them, learning not to set ridiculous ones by failing some. I didn't know that when I was a kid. If my parents did, they were too busy to share that.
Okay, back to the actual topic, exactly why do you need alcohol and pot, how much do you need, how can you justify the expense, what would happen if you couldn't get it, why do you want your kids to have it? Be honest, please.
