4. Well, parents worry about their kids

And too often think that bad law is good for kids, when it's not. I was responding to the person saying hell has broken loose and the caterwauling of parents was rising from coast to coast to mourn their children's safety.

...when the reality is that unregulated marijuana is far more dangerous, as is keeping it within an illegal market framework. I don't know how many liquor stores bring alcohol to school to sell to kids, that sort of thing. It's all fear mongering, imo.

Parents who imbibe any such substances have a responsibility to keep their intoxicants away from their kids and to use the same responsibly. This happens all the time. Some people just need to be reminded of this reality.

When we're looking at a regulatory framework for an intoxicating substance - alcohol is the model we have in existence, so people will look at how it is regulated in order to provide guidance for cannabis regulation.
