Complicates?, How is that?Sex, alcohol, tobacco, gambling, PG-13 and
R rated movies, Out after 10:00 P.M., swearing....All legal, all
restricted to minors.For crying out loud, The same rules and
lessons in life apply.Just use them.
Having lived in the State of Washington we had the marijuana discussion wAAAAy
before it became legal with our kids. The truth is that in the evergreen state,
it was already legal by the fact that nobody enforced possession in the first
place. So we had neighbors that would regularly partake in the
"whacky-tabacky". I find that as a member of the LDS faith,
the Word of Wisdom is so key. We distinguish ourselves from all sorts of legal
substances and so we always took that approach with the Weed. We
also tend to discuss the consequences of longterm use, which is easy when you
see your neighbors destroying their lives with drug use. Two neighbors that I
dearly loved, so far, are dead because what started out as innocent led to more
potent addictions and then destructive life-ending chains of substance abuse.
I suspect we are in for a generation of tears and sorrow for the
short-sighted, pot-addled mindset of this current generation.
LDS lib,so you ADVOCATE making evil more accessible?
@ lost in DC: Not everyone agrees with your definition of "evil" - and
doesn't your religion have some story about some battle where one side
wanted to force everyone to do "right" and the other side wanted to give
people the opportunity to learn and choose for themselves? And, if I remember
correctly, the side that was against choice is usually considered the evil side,
