The reason that the United States of America has a drug problem is because it has been caught in a perpetual lie. The denial by Americans that cannabis is not a Schedule I substance has only benefited large conglomerates, and a small minority of people who profit from criminalizing the majority.
Our children are not stupid, but they are inquisitive. When they consume cannabis for the first time they realize almost immediately that they have been lied to. Once this lie is exposed then they begin to question everything that we tell them, as they should, since we have lied to them.
