Adult Use Legalization MUST Protect Families - Parents 4 Pot

| December 28, 2015

What is cannabis “legalization” if parents still have to worry about losing their kids, their

jobs, their housing or their freedom? The biggest tragedy of the war on weed has been

the devastating affect it has on families. Parents are on the frontlines of this battle and

face extraordinary threats because cannabis is illegal. The threat of losing one’s

children for weed should not even be an option. Any good legalization initiative should

say in bold letters right across the top; “THIS LEGISLATION ENSURES THAT WE

QUIT TAKING PEOPLE TO JAIL, QUIT TAKING PEOPLE’S CHILDREN, QUIT FIRING

PEOPLE FROM THEIR JOBS AND QUIT KICKING PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR

HOUSING FOR WEED.” Otherwise what is the point? This is the real battle for

cannabis freedom: the rights of everyday folks, including parents, to enjoy cannabis

without the fear.

As election season heats up and we see new laws for 2016, we must ask ourselves,

“Does this do enough to protect families from prohibition?” Many cannabis reform

advocates would have us believe that any progress is good. The fact is that poorly

written laws are likely to be on the books for decades. It takes a lot of time and energy

to change a law once it is on the books. It is imperative that the new laws clearly state

their intentions to end the madness of it all. Parents who enjoy cannabis deserve our

respect. The time to change this is now. We must demand the upcoming laws ensure

that families are safe from attack by those who hate weed. Anything less is simply

unacceptable.
