All this "What about the children.." We've got to keep it away from kids!", blah blah blah...
First of all little kids- toddlers- that's up to the parents to educate your child and *KEEP YOUR cannabis safely away from your children and every other thing that can harm them- we all understand this is impossible. But try.. that is what good parents do.
Heres what I learned about kids, they are:
NOT FUCKING STUPID. Stop treating them as so.
Chances are in many ways with help of the rest of the world, cell phones, iPad & internet they are probably smarter than you. I guarantee there are far more intelligent 8 year olds than old, white, very rich men in USA congress at this very moment. (cartoon in the works) kids know more about Cannabis than we ever did about Alcohol growing up - other than it was "cool" at least they are hearing about discussion & they WILL then educate themselves- or they won't - this is life. Teach them about choices & consequences.
So not allowing creative marketing on cannabis products is just BULLSHIT.
How are we o.k. with this decision? What happened to choice? It is just setting up Canadian businesses for failure and healthy competition. IF the kids who want it - want it- they don't give a shit about advertising. Open a flier this past father day weekend what do I see? Besides the glossy alcohol flier- just in time to drunk dad up.. - A COORS popcorn maker' on sale and giant novelty beer cooler' for dad! Plant the seed. Who doesn't own a free cap given in a case of beer - isn't it a Canadian tradition? I really do like my "I AM Canadian" T-shirts & bucket hat Molson Beer puts out, they keep it class IMO by keeping 'molson' very small. OMGosh it's frustrating when you realize the difference between cannabis and alcohol alone.. worse though - it is insulting to our kids.
Why confuse them- tell them straight out! Don't use any drugs if you can't help it -it might destroy parts of your brain. Why take the chance?
Give yourself the best advantage in life you can
Don't eat any crap or you'll get fat & it will lead to serous health problems.
Don't start Vaping- it's not attractive and it might just become and expensive habit.
It's ALL stuff, try to experience 'life' - not stuff... I think that would be a good start.
Wouldn't it be nice if we REALLY cared about kids- ALL kids - if we stopped this hypocritical bullshit RIGHT NOW & ALL focused on what IS happening the USA with separating kids & sticking them in cages like animals- NO art supplies, NO toys, NO blanket < No COMFORT. ANY American that goes along with that, I do not understand your definition of 'Proud American'. Do you have children?
Ya'll better not believe in Karma. Eh.
Imagine the seed that is being planted in all those young minds & the young minds of all watching. Fear & HATE.
Please let's teach our children, educate them.. not plant seed of confusion, fear and hate.. end the stigma with cannabis or get RID of ALL Alcohol advertising- for the sake of the kids of course.

IF you care about the kids and then explain the Fucking DOUBLE standards to me PLEASE.
With TLC & THC
