Netflix presents a new sitcom about a cannabis shop called Ruth’s Alternative Caring. Staff and customers are routinely high, stoner and sexual jokes abound. What message does this kind of show send to our children?
Across the country, marijuana is being legalized. State by state, it’s legalized for medical use first and then later, recreational use. Now, it appears that Americans did not know the truth about this drug as they voted for legalization.
One thing is for sure: There is plenty of confusing information circulating about marijuana. One faction claims it’s harmless and even medicinal. The other faction holds the opinion that this drug is dangerous in many ways. Caught in the middle are our young citizens. Teens and young adults can hardly be blamed for thinking the substance is benign. Should parents just give in and let youth do what they want?
