DENVER – Michael Jolton was a young father with a 5-year-old son when Colorado legalized medical marijuana in 2000. Now he's got three boys, the oldest near adulthood, and finds himself repeatedly explaining green-leafed marijuana ads and "free joint" promotions endemic in his suburban hometown.
"I did not talk to my oldest son about marijuana when he was 8 years old. We got to talk about fun stuff. Now with my youngest who's 8, we have to talk about this," said Jolton, a consultant from Lakewood.
A marijuana opponent with a just-say-no philosophy, Jolton, 48, is among legions of American parents finding the "drug talk" increasingly problematic as more states allow medical marijuana or decriminalize its use. Colorado and Washington state have measures on their Nov. 6 ballot that would go a further step and legalize recreational use of marijuana for adults.
Yes, truth can be very problematic.
I am near-certain Jolton would not want jail time for one of his kids caught smoking a joint. Why is prison so rarely a part of the debate?
Because they are stupid. The real worst end of the spectrum is never even considered. They are too worried with what thangs "do to people" vs. being worried about what they do with the things or even more importantly what other people do to people. Hmm... Yeah people lock other people in cages for an action as "wrong" as holding an item in their hand that is hurting absolutely nothing and no one. Fuck yeah we get to live in this greatness!!!! Woot! After all humans ARE just animals!!! Lulziez
