Not Safe For The Children: Friends Who Gave Children Weed

Leave The Kids Alone, Dope Fiends!

The media has been spreading the unscientifically proven “health benefits” of marijuana FOR CHILDREN for years.  Just a quick search on the internet shows many stories.  Once a positive story appears, it is taken as fact.  Forever.  It’s all propaganda designed by the government to take your children from you – eventually.

Stoned Mom Dances, Blows Weed Smoke At 3-Year Old Daughter

The result of all this is adults are giving marijuana in all forms to their children.

It reminds me of two very disturbing events in my own life.  I had a friend in the 1990s who was a stoner.  She was in her late 30s at the time.   She was married with two little kids.  She called me every evening and talked my ear off.

At the time I was mourning the loss of my mother so my friend’s company and frequent phone calls were welcome.  Besides, she took me to my very first Catholic mass which I have loved since.  That’s another story, though.

I finally broke off our friendship:  I witnessed her smoking a joint while dancing around her little girl who was sitting on a small chair in the middle of the room while her mother danced a circle around her.  She even blew marijuana smoke in the girl’s face.   Then, they immediately got in their car and drove off.

To my eternal shame, I didn’t inform her (anti-marijuana) husband or call the police.

Stoned Musicians Laughing At Almost-Asphyxiated Child

Another time, in the 1970s, a group of musician friends, all guys, were smoking a giant ‘spliff’ at our apartment.  I didn’t have any, like usual.  Everyone was laughing it up.  Except me.

To my horror and shame a guy named David gave his 5-year-old son the spliff and egged him on to try it.  He did.  I could tell he’d done this before.  He coughed, hacked, couldn’t catch his breath.  Then, the little guy turned all red and then purplish!

I’m ashamed that I didn’t call the police.  Neither did I get mad and kick them out.  I heard shortly afterward that David’s wife took the kids and moved out of state.

QUACK SCIENCE:  Children Treated For Epilepsy With CBD Oil

All other violations of Health and Safety Code 11361 are punishable by:

  • three, five, or seven years in state prison.2

  • Induce a minor of any age to use marijuana,
  • Use a minor of any age to transport, sell or give away marijuana, or
  • Give or offer marijuana to a minor under 14.

The exception is medical marijuana.
