We never quite find out where and when viral videos are shot.

One that may have McDonalds executives raising their eyebrows can be seen on worldstarhiphop.com.

The site known for featuring violent attack videos, has a video of a drive through encounter with a McDonalds employee smoking marijuana from inside the store.

The person video recording the episode is laughing up a storm with his counterpart.

Pro-marijuana activists have been beating the same drum for years.

If I had a dollar every time I’ve heard or read that “marijuana has never killed anyone” or “not one person has died directly from using marijuana.”

It typically is the number one point made by marijuana advocates when the discussion centers around marijuana legalization.

The truth is when it comes to kids, there are numerous studies that reveal damaging effects to the brains of adolescent marijuana smokers.

ECSTASY ISN’T JUST TAKEN INTENTIONALLY. MANY YOUNG TEENS INGEST ECSTASY ACCIDENTALLY, IN SPIKED ITEMS THAT THEY CONSUME. PROTECT YOUR TEEN AND KNOW IF THEY’VE BEEN GIVEN ECSTASY WITH THE TEST HERE.

Adults are another story, and we are not talking about marijuana.

Now, the health minister of British Columbia says that pure MDMA or ecstasy is relatively safe and it’s only been tainted by gang street chemists.

I’m not sure why there is always a push to legalize all substances.

How about we continue to push the message that all drugs are bad. They are unhealthy one way or another.

There will always be someone with a title or a degree who stands up for any type of drug being safe. But what’s important is that nearly all of those advocates would agree that drugs for the adolescent are damaging.

Ravers and ecstasy indulgers will love this news. But we have to think about the 12 and 13 year olds who are starting to use in middle school.

This teen drug use must be prevented. Adults making choices is a whole other situation.

As families, these are the times we cherish most.    The school year is winding down, and we are taking family trips to theme parks, or destinations by land, sea, or air.     Everyone appreciates the family spring break trip.    Most are fun, safe, and treasures to remember.   They typically do not end up like the Griswolds’ vacations.     While those mini disasters are fictional comedy for us to enjoy, there are serious concerns to remember during these vacations.

Teens with more free time are looking for things to do.  Unfortunately, drugs become one of the things they “play around with.”     Kids attend more parties during this time.    Teens bring more than alcohol to these parties.   Marijuana is abundantly plentiful.   It shows up in candy bars, brownies, and other baked goods.     Believe it or not, some teens think that marijuana is safer if it isn’t smoked.    The pot brownies start becoming more attractive.

It’s a good ideas to have a home drug test in the family home.    Parents can allow their teens to enjoy their spring break, with the understanding that the test will be there.

As more school crack down on prom drinking and drug use, parents should be more vigilant as well.    More school districts are utilizing breathalyzers at the dancers, to detect alcohol.   But what they won’t catch are the teens who just ate a big pot laced candy bar.     Kids will be higher than a kite at the dance, and then can continue their drinking at their hotel rooms.

Parents need to be vigilant in summer as well.   While teens often turn to drugs during the school year, as a way to cope, the summer is just an excuse to overuse.
