@Maggie Avants, I get the picture and all, like haha a bag of weed. Weed like any drug is not good for kids. But a more realistic picture would be a picture of a PHARMACEUTICAL PILL BOTTLE, or a CAN OF COORS light. We need to quit ignoring the fact that alcohol is a drug, a highly accessible drug that will make you deathly ill, and also impair your judgement while driving a car, it can put you in unsafe situations (females in particular) where you may blackout and get raped, or pregnant, or catch a sexual disease. Alcohol makes people violent, at every sports venue our families have to worry about a fight breaking out, or rude disrespectful behavior. Then you gotta worrk about making it out of the parking lot without being killed by a drunk. And what about all of the parent that hand their kids Vicodin (heroin)? What about zanex? Are you nervous kid, take a zanex!!? What about the doctors that hand your kids adderrall (meth)? Maggie you have a platform to speak on, lets start taking advantage of that platform! Taking pills is not acceptable, its not part of the norm, you all just think it is. 90 percent of heroin addicts started with a prescription drug.
