You know it really bothers me that we haven’t had more press on the states that have decided to allow pot smoking to be legal. Sure it is new, but where are the discussions? No elementary schools or middle schools in up roar?
Bus drivers, taxi drivers, pilots, teachers just about every vocation should be talking about how this will be handled in the workplace. How to regulate, what to tolerate.
And if they are mad and picketing why am I not hearing about it? Touchy touchy I know I sound like a super moralizing republican voting fanatically religious way out there freak! But alas no, just an adult that grew up with plenty of pot smoking adults around me including a parent by the way.
So what? I will tell you that having a parent that smokes or snorts, takes pills, drinks, parties or whatever we are doing now a days is not fun it’s scary. It’s scary to guess how they will be today, if they will make food or sleep all day. If they are going to be the adult or am I taking care of my brothers and sisters today? And should I stay home from school to care for the little ones not in school yet?
Maybe I am not talking about the people that smoke every once in a while. ( what does that mean specifically?) Or maybe I am. I mean the ones that “don’t have a problem”. And did I bring up the secondary high yet? No? Well there it is. What about that?
And I hope that all this freedom means individuals take the consequences too. Why should my tax dollars pay for rehab for something that is legal? How are insurance companies reacting to this anyway? No problem as long as we choose the doctor that writes the prescriptions? Does he test his product? Which ailments is this good for? Oh and since cocain is used for eye surgeries in some countries maybe we should legalize that too, in drop form so we can drop our coke where we want it!
I am not against legislation when we consider that individuals will do what they want anyway. But I am for us considering the fact that there are children involved in the smoke cloud – and they should be considered. Maybe. Just a little bit? A minuet of your time? A second? Thank you.
