Before they had me, my parents certainly used to be hippies… or something close to that.
They traveled the country in a VW van, which they also lived in at the time.
They might have kept on exactly like that, except for they had a kid as well as decided to settle down as usual folks. The point of this is that I grew up in a household that was legitimately liberal and free when it came to most things, including drinking as well as drugs. I was not ever allowed to do those things as a child, however my parents never demonized alcohol or the use of cannabis. Instead they explained that cannabis as well as alcohol were both important things that were normal for adults to use. The point of this story is that because they fully normalized cannabis as well as alcohol, I never had an issue with them; Some kids go buck wild as soon as they get their first choice as well as start using marijuana as well as other intense drugs, because they are so curious about the “forbidden fruit.” Imagine saying to kids “cannabis will alter your perceptions as well as send you to a new realm of consciousness, so you should never do it!” Of course these teenagers will use the most cannabis ASAP to see what all the hype is about. Since my parents raised me to think of cannabis as being normal, I was never tempted to try it until I was much older, but as a real adult I use cannabis often, as well as I love it, however I am so cheerful nowadays that my parents never made it feel weird. More parents should raise their youngsters to see cannabis as something that is normal.
