Illinois Parents Need To Be More Responsible With Their Pot Edibles
If parents in Illinois want to consume cannabis and marijuana products, they are going to have to learn to be responsible. They must keep weed out of the hands of children. There's a big reason that the legal age to purchase pot is twenty-one. They aren't ready for it.
"When it's in a candy form or cookies, people don't think of it in the same way as household chemicals or other things a child could get into," she said. "But people should really be thinking of it as a medication."
Come on parents, this one is on you. Think about it. You used to hide your weed when it was illegal so it shouldn't be that difficult to figure it out. There's nothing wrong with having fun with pot and edibles but please keep it away from the kids.
