“Laws are changing everything around us as well as the world that cannabis lives in. Sometimes it is time to sit down the bowl and really focus on the issues. Well then pick it back up, politics is stressful…”
Recently, a child in North Carolina turned in his parents’ marijuana to his D.A.R.E. officer at school because he was told that marijuana was dangerous. Now, the parents are facing drug charges and the child has been carted away by social services. According to D.A.R.E., this family being torn apart by petty marijuana charges is considered a “victory.” One quote from one of the D.A.R.E. officers stands out completely for me, “That’s what they’re told to do, to make us aware.”
I don’t know about you, but this whole story seems a little too Orwellian for me. I guess our government/law enforcement took the book 1984 more as an instruction manual than a warning. We’re not being reported for thought crimes just yet, but they already have our children snitching us out.
