As I'm working on the second book, The Gloops and the Special Plant: Molly Knows Safety, my time and thoughts are all about cannabis safety for family life. I wanted to provide a simple, quick-tips guide for parents and guardians who are also thinking about safety during this time of exciting changes. There are so many aspects of medical and adult-use cannabis to consider when teaching children about safety. How much do we say? How do we explain the seriousness of underage cannabis use without scaring children unnecessarily?
If you are on this website, I'm going to make the assumption that you acknowledge cannabis as a useful plant. So, we don't want to paint the picture that cannabis is the Boogeyman. In order to normalize this plant, and still make sure children understand that it is not safe for them (unless given by an adult in the proper form as needed medicine, of course) parents have to take time to consider their approach.
That's why I created the Parents' Corner. If you or a loved one are seeking some simple tips to a safe home and a safe child, check it out!
