  1. This is fucking bullshit, if you haven't realized most kids smoke weed because of their relationship with their parents trust me i know its one of the reasons for my use along with other reasons but you shouldn't get mad at your'e kids for smoking pot it is a safe natural substance (THE ONLY NATURAL SUBSTANCE DOESN'T HARM YOU) ( UNLIKE TOBACCO) let them experiment

  2. Yeah parents, keep weed away from your kids! Itll … Uh… Make them have a dry mouth! And… Uhhm… If they take too much,… They might.. Fall down, or something…

  3. Real simple way to catch your kids put a security microphone in the ceiling hook it up to a security DVR most people already have one and when you kid goes in the room listen to what they say listen for sounds you catch on pretty quick kids want that smart

  4. Its just weed😂 now u have banned it and we're just taking xans and oxycontin nowadays. Weed is natural but all these pills ur proscribing teens is okay?

  5. Idk why u think weed is good for you it’s actually not it’s as bad as any other drugs and for the last TIME CIGARETTES ARE BETTER FOR YOU THEN ANY DRUGS INCLUDING WEEEEED!

  6. For one why go under cover. Are you children walk in speak with them dont fake or fool ppl for what reason. Your shameless. For that
