Is Getting Wasted Really a Big Deal?
by Jonathan McKee
9/14/2017

“Mom, smoking weed really isn’t a big deal.”

It’s what millions of parents are hearing from their kids. After all, it’s legal in eight states in the U.S., it’s legal for medicinal use in 28 states… and Kanye West does it. What could be more convincing?

It’s something I hear from parents at every one of my parent workshops. “How do I respond to my son who doesn’t want to do anything other than smoke pot and play video games?”

The Ever-Increasing Impact of Social Media

Could it be changing them emotionally and relationally? And if so, for good or bad?
