Before marijuana legalization activists go batty, let’s preface this conversation with the fact that his discussion is about children using drugs. We are not talking about 18-year-old adults. We are talking about our kids.
The New York Times offered up to debate the topic of which drug is least harmful for children. You can read it by clicking HERE. The researcher, Professor Robert Gable, can be commended for his quest to discover the facts about the substances in our society.
First, while Professor Gable was research ecstasy, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, codeine, LSD, and alcohol, new product hit the streets, like bath salts.
But let’s stick to the substances that he did measure. Putting out research that states that marijuana is safer for kids than alcohol and other drugs, arms kids with this faux knowledge that pot is just fine.
Just hours after the professor’s research hit the internet, numerous articles surfaced about legalizing marijuana, and the harmlessness of it when it comes to children.
We need to remember that children’s brains aren’t fully developed. A 12-year-old smoking marijuana is causing irreparable damage to their brain. If an adult wants to smoke pot, that’s their right. But when it comes to kids, parents need to be vigilant.
