5.0 out of 5 stars I wish this book was around when i was a kid, May 29, 2006
This review is from: It's Just a Plant: A Children's Story of Marijuana (Hardcover)
i am 20 years old and a product of the DARE program. when i first read this book, the only thing that went thru my mind is, "gee, this would have been a thousand times more helpful than the ever failed scare tactic." for those who have no clue what DARE taught my generation, you're not alone. i have no clue what i got out of DARE, except an uneducated police officer going on about how chalk dust from the black board looks like coke, and cartoons of bunnies on drugs that scared the s*** out of me. and today, i cannot say i know one person my age who hasn't smoked pot at least once.

now i'll tell you why i do not drink. because i was well informed what alcohol was and that although legal for parents, very bad for young growing minds. i always knew that, i knew it when i was 6, and it certainly didn't make me want to drink more. learning about pot the way i did only made me a million times more curious, because the information was so biased it lost its relevancy.

i think the best part about this book is its take on parenting. don't close the door on your child when they ask you the important questions, otherwise they'll have to find it out on their own eventually and there is no chance it will be to taught to them the way you wanted them to know it. make sure they have all the facts.

i think most of us can agree marijuana should be legal, atleast medicinally, and the prohibition of it is outdated and full of conspiracy. hemp is our greatest crop, it can be made into just about any kind of product. imagine how many trees we could have saved if the paper industry just backed off.

Yes I think we all realize some people would abuse it, however this is with anything. Alcohol, tobacco, prescription medications, this is a pretty vague statement that proves absolutely nothing.
