As a 53 year old with a somehwat spotty personal history, I can only say I hope your generation makes it through the eye of the drug storm better than my own was able to do. It can be a bigger challenge than it might at first appear to be.
South Park's Trey Parker and Matt Stone are two of our most brilliant commentators.
In interviews they've said that the biggest danger in weed is the risk that if bored kids smoke it too much, they won't develop their true drive and creativity. Spot on.
In the aftermath of the Columbine shooting -- because it happened in their home town -- Parker-Stone were eagerly sought out by the press. Obviously troubled that day, they said the only truly insightful thing I heard about Columbine: "I wished these two kids could have understood that there was life after high school. That high school ended. That life after high school could be very different, whatever you did."
Parker-Stone have been calling out Al Gore on AGW for years: ManBearPig. How prescient.
