Maybe its just me, but isn't 8 a little young to explain alcohol and safe sex as well though?
Just like alcohol, weed is dangerous for developing minds. From the looks at the book, I'm not sure I trust to actually provide a reasonable "wait till you're older, use in moderation" explanation. Like, would you read "Alcohol is just a drink" to your 8 year old kid?
That's when we were going through programs like D.A.R.E and had our first (single sex) sex-ed class.
Have you read the book
Exact quote: “Marijuana is for people who can use it responsibly. It gives some people joy, but like everything, it can be used too much. I don’t recommend it for everyone. It is a strong medicine - not good for you right now.”
and: “Marijuana is for grown-ups,” said Jackie’s mom. “Some things are for adults and not for children, like driving a car or drinking a coffee.”
