Seems pretty easy to be in the know right? Well, first you must educate yourself and then move onto your children. Make it clear that while Colorado has made it legal for adults over the age of 21 to buy and use retail marijuana, youth are not in that age group and for good reason! Their brains are still developing, and therefore the use can be unhealthy for youth.
Once you have educated yourself and had an informative discussion with your children, it is time to move to the party scene. Maybe you are a user, maybe not, but the bottom line is this is a topic that will come up. Just like people getting a DUI for driving after drinking too much, you can also get a DUID – meaning getting high before your drive and driving under the influence. Be aware of the consequences when having fun this holiday season!
Another great thing to keep in mind is the storage of your marijuana product. If you are planning to have a party or event in your home with people under 21 years old, it’s time to be mindful of your storage! Tip: Keep marijuana that may be in the house out of reach of children; store all marijuana products in a locked area out of reach and out of sight; keep marijuana products in the same child resistant packaging they came in from the store.
Have you started thinking about your expectations for your guests and family this holiday season concerning Marijuana use?
