Everyone wants to keep children safe from harm. If someone puts a child in harm’s way or leaves them with access to a deadly situation, we want to take the child out of that place.
In the case of a parent being the cause, we say that the child’s safety comes first, but it seems what the government thinks is safe and what we know to be dangerous aren’t always the same thing.
An 11-year-old boy in Tennessee goes hunting with his family and has been trained in firearm use and safety. While his parents are out, he gets into an argument about puppies with an 8-year-old girl. He goes into his house, grabs his father’s shotgun and checks to make sure it is loaded before going to the window and firing a shot directly into the girl’s chest. His name is Benjamin Tiller, and he will spend the rest of his childhood in the custody of the state.
An 11-year-old boy in Kansas was taken from his mother’s custody following a drug education seminar at his school where he corrected the educators on the dangers of cannabis, stating that it was not dangerous, but healthy and that his mother used it to treat her Crohn’s disease.
The school called child protective services, who called police. The police then called a judge for a warrant and proceeded to intimidate their way past the at-home babysitter to raid the residence. They found cannabis and cannabis extract.
What is wrong with whis picture?
The question is this: which parent do you think was charged with child endangerment? Was it the one who taught their child the truth about cannabis, but never allowed their child to touch the non-toxic medicine that allowed her to function and perform her parental duties, or was it the parent who taught their child how to use a deadly weapon and left it and it’s ammunition where the child could access it and use it to commit murder?
If you chose the parent who taught their child how to kill, you are smarter than the state of Kansas, but you are wrong.
The war On truth
That’s right. Shona Banda, the mother of the boy in Kansas, faces decades in jail for her medicine. Her child has been taken from her and she is charged with several marijuana-related offenses as well as child endangerment. We have to ask ourselves what the danger was. Does our government consider guns safer than cannabis? Or is it that they feel that the power of truth is more dangerous (to them) than our guns?

America’s violent heritage
America was founded by guns. Guns helped us gain our freedom from the tyranny of the British monarchy. They are written into our Bill of Rights. Try as they might, politicians will never take our ability to defend ourselves, because the harder they try, the more we realize the need for arms. We have learned what the world would be like if only those in power had weapons, and we are learning how much they really care about our humanitarian treatment.Teaching our children the importance of this is fundamental, but putting a deadly weapon in the hands of an immature child is a different story.

America’s cannabis heritage
The propaganda spewed forth by the anti-drug classes our children suffer through in regards to cannabis is an outright lie. The history of cannabis and humanity, of cannabis and America, has been skewed for horrible reasons of money, power, and control. The right to cannabis is as vital a part of our culture as the right to bear arms, and for our children, a much safer one.
