Your brains are still developing. You don't wanna gets exposed to look you know marijuana at a young age because it could affect in the development of your brain plus it isn't legal for you could as your underage. But as an adult you know it could be some things that you do occasionally as a treat but right now I just think it's best you kind of steer clear. As a brain developing next week the only thing I think the thing hey you know so tough because I'm not dumb they're gonna try it at some point you know I'll have Shiller yeah I mean I know I did and I think in fourteen my first trying to you know probably shouldn't say that could. Let's head up high I got back at it yes.

All of so much worse than me more stupid things yet you know drunk than I am ever get stoned and biggest donate this money eaten lap and watch TV hurt but I mean that's. That's the truth that they you know but none is definitely interesting and I just saw something on Huffington Post women on FaceBook they had posted. Is really funny Adam link the exhaustive list of everyone who's died of a marijuana overdose and it's still the same number since last post in 2013. 00. People have died from an overdose where if you look at alcoholism numbers that stood and over top. Okay that's cool and I remember when I was growing up and the school would be do we need certain things that we teach the kids my mom with the mom that said no she would not allow much like I wanna be on that teaches you XX and the drug d.s. You know so she would have to teach me about it but she was the one that was really strict and really harp like. No everything's eve ball it's horrible it should be popping Excedrin every single day.

Content right on the future you brief still developing at what you do as a teenager is gonna affect how you ours and adults so be careful and you never know what. Drugs lead to other drugs or why it. Is in this certain drug like just me or surgeon. Picture around there right people to I think like it's important just to be honest and real about the topic you know com. This being in denial is not gonna do anyone any good you know so when my son is. Talked to me and ask questions. I try to do is open and honest as I possibly can do a limit you know on the and a leg indulgent like all my experiences growing up you know but. I just. And I am. Definitely a different time raising kids in this do you think marijuana lake evil old diesel have that mindset. I kind of have that mindset. Because. Of how I was three yeah I that I and seeing all the research now on aches and my friends and family who have actually benefited from. It in a healthy way right that helping them in certain health aspects verses the painkillers. And the pain pills. I've seen that with those are we work out exactly so well I think there was stuff way back in the day were it was made to be such an evil drug because. The government couldn't make money from its right now Leon out of her shirt and our colleagues those things behind the scenes that we find out years later like this company was trying to. Become the new drug companies so say marijuana is. Well and well what appeals pretty big and a weary certainly Atlanta politics and hands and big and RNC.
