  • I taught my son as a child that alcohol was a drug not an “Adult Beverage”,that cigarettes contain a dangerous drug. Now at almost 30 years old he doesn’t use either.He was also taught that that problematic use of the drug alcohol and nicotine has been a family issue that there are many who can’t drink safely . Knowing many heroin users from the past most did not segway from marijuana but from the drug alcohol.Here on Long Island the majority of the heroin addicts come from the conservative working class families.This group are not the “Hippie Liberal” Woodstock generation and if someone becomes an addict tend to blame poor parenting except when it hits close to home then they blame the Liberals.I witnessed on more than one occasion a tipsy adult lecture a teen on the wrongs of cannabis use .Young people know when information is inaccurate or false .I’m going on 70 years and recently watch old movies from the 30 and 40’s . Drinking and smoking to excess was extremely fashionable and intoxication ….Well ……COOL.

  • Well we pretend that alcohol products are solely beverages when in fact to many an addictive drug. There is very little mention to the possibility of Wernicke–Korsakoff syndrome (WKS), also called wet brain, Korsakoff’s psychosis, and alcoholic encephalopathy . Don’t drink and drive or drink responsibly not enough.Seizure sometimes fatal during detox or shortly afterwards is not uncommon . Cannabis has been made the “Boogie Man”.
