Legal Marijuana for Parents, but Not Their Kids

Legal Marijuana for Parents, but Not Their Kids | AIHCP Magazine, Articles & Discussions | Scoop.it
Educators say efforts to legalize marijuana have created new challenges as they work to teach teenagers about the unique risks that the drug poses to the developing brain.
American Institute Health Care Professionals's insight:

The best way to deal with this is to compare it to alcohol.   It is legal but wrong for kids at the same time.  If weed is explained this way to kids, they will understand its an adult pass time but not for them.
