We Should Legalize Cannabis, But What About the Kids
When it comes to the question, what about the kids and marijuana legalization people often times ask how will it affect the youth and their futures? The questions they have are concerns that are relevant and need addressing. They want to know where kids face more options for easy access to marijuana if it will influence them to grow up and smoke marijuana? And what will it say to our kids when adults everywhere are smoking marijuana? The answers to these questions are starting to come in.
Kids are benefiting from the legalization of marijuana more than just about anybody else it would seem. I'm not talking about just the sick ones who need access to marijuana either. I'm talking about children in general. Even the ones who have no clue about marijuana, what it is, or who's using it. Children who are starting out in kindergarten and grade school. These children are benefiting from marijuana in multiple ways. From parents that do not abuse harder drugs or alcohol and provide a better home life all the way to funding being increased for schools providing them with a better education
The communities and cities across the United States with legalized marijuana laws are seeing a reduction in violent crimes and more community involvement. This means a stronger environment for children to grow up in helping to usher in a brighter future for tomorrow. Kids are not consuming cannabis and in fact, in states with legalized marijuana like Colorado kids are refusing to smoke marijuana. Statistics of teenage marijuana consumption are dropping significantly and are continuing to do so, which is in return proving critics to be wrong. So when you ask yourself what about the kids when it comes to cannabis legalization know they are being taken care of better than ever before.
