CN ON: OPED: Already Thinking About Son And Legalized Pot

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 07:00:00 GMT

The Sun Times, 19 Sep 2017 - When it comes to my son's possible future use of marijuana, I'm not sure if "It's legal, mom!" will have a material impact on my response. I have imagined this conversation, and others like it, about life's many potentially addicting substances and behaviours -- alcohol, prescription and other drugs, gambling, speeding, texting and driving, pornography, sugar, etc. -- because I know the kind of world we live in today and that the values of the majority are less and less aligned with the old-fashioned values espoused at my craggy old kitchen table. Even when those values feel like a fruitless cause that might better have been taken up in a cloistered community, I try not to give in to pessimism. There's what happens out there, in the world, and there's what happens in here, within the walls of my home, and I am happy to do my part to contribute to a climate of uncomfortable difference between the two.
