OREGON MOTHER LAMENTS THE HARMS BROUGHT ON BY LEGALIZING POT
The availability of substances became rampant in the wake of legalization, and yes it was affecting our oldest son Trevor, now 16.
The Slippery Slope
Trevor moved beyond marijuana and got involved in so much more:
- Dealing/trading other drugs, pills and alcohol
- Stealing from friends and family
- Driving without a license or even a permit
- Skipping school, lying and promiscuity
The effects of drugs on the teen brain are horrific. Many adults don’t even know, and many kids have no idea what they are doing to their brains when they’re doing pot. One must live through it in their own home, with their own child, to understand the dynamic and heartache this behavior brings. In our situation, the county juvenile services became imperative. We were forced to turn our own son over to authorities. Without the police and the county services, Trevor would not have progressed so far in the right direction.
