I had a nice one-on-one interview with a High School student (set up by his teacher) who is doing a project on drug policy reform for a sociology class. It was really great to see his passion and enthusiasm for learning more about the subject.
He was light years ahead of what I knew at his age.
When I was in High School there was hardly the possibility of having access to information on drug policy, let alone writing about reform. So while it still may be taboo to some to talk about legalization in High School (as my interviewer mentioned), we’ve come a long way.
As long as there are young people who want to know more, we’ll be there to help give them the facts.
(Oh, and when you finish with that project, if you want to stop by and let us know how it went, we’d love to hear.)
