Talking to your kids about cannabis

Have you talked to your kids about pot yet? I have, just because I want to demystify the whole thing for them.

I remember when I was a kid all I was told about pot is that it was dangerous, and led to a life of crime and hard drug use.

As a teenager, that actually sounded cool to me. I thought that smoking pot would turn me into a gangster or a tough guy. I came to learn that smoking pot isn’t a big deal, and to make it seem like it only made it more appealing to young people. I have always been open about cannabis with my kids, because I don’t want them growing up thinking it’s this amazing, destructive drug. Cannabis is like beer, or coffee, or fast food – maybe it’s not great for you, but it’s not a big deal if used in moderation. Quite frankly the knowledge that their boring old dad smokes cannabis makes it far less appealing to them! One day in high school some kid is going to hand them a joint, and they will say “marijuana, like old people smoke?” and that will be the end of it. And if they choose to smoke cannabis, then that’s fine too, because like I said, it is not a big deal. I would be worried about my kids trying out crack or heroin, but cannabis is just good clean fun. Of course, my kids have also walked in on me smoking cannabis before, so I had no choice but to be honest with them about it.
