Michelle Minton on twitter recently posted a really great tweet and Christine’s reply is spot on. This is the real tragedy and absolutely speaks to WHY youths are seeing out substances in the first place. It’s the same reason why I ( a 42 year old guy ) sought out “legal for me substances” to cope with my stress and anxiety.

Young people in 2020 are part of a crazy social media internet world that I couldn’t imagine dealing with at 12 or 13 years old. I remember 7th grade, it sucks man. It’s also when I first smoked weed, first smoked cigarettes and first drank alcohol, and I didn’t have the non-stop internet popularity contest of Instagram or Facebook to deal with.
