I attended a drug and alcohol seminar for kids moving up to the high school with my son last night (disappointingly, there were less than 40 kids from his class of 300 in attendance) hosted by the Pittsburgh Drug Alliance.
As a little aside, this program was excellent and showed a video of several kids and their parents who died from drug overdoses all within 10 miles of my home. Very powerful to recognize names and places from the video. Yes, I cried through most of it, embarrassing my 14 year old.
There was a panel of recovering addicts who were interviewed in the front of the room and the closing question for each was "Do you support legalizing recreational marijuana?"
I felt really stupid when I realized I didn't know this has been proposed. But learned, this bill has passed in some western states like Colorado and Washington. I really need to read the paper more...
So, it's Feedback Friday...
What do you think of legalizing recreational marijuana?
