Hoarding is not collection development

Are your kids using drugs?

 

Kids and Drugs: A Parent’s Guide
How to Tell if Your Child is Using Drugs and What to do
Otteson, Townsend, and Rumsey
1983

Parents, now your fears can be laid to rest. These guys are here to give you the inside scoop on drug abuse by teens. Here are some indicators of marijuana use: poor grades, nonconformity, and cigarettes. And of course marijuana use leads to hard core drug use like cocaine or amphetamines. The rest of the book is a combination of admonishing parents and a handy drug guide.

Regardless of the quality of information 1983 is simply too old. Weed it, then light up a fatty and congratulate yourself on good collection maintenance.

Note: ALB does not condone the use of drugs or alcohol while weeding or driving.

    • The problem with that is that every book will be the greatest one you ever read, and you’ll never weed anything. Or so I’ve read.

  • I might note that I learned, when I was 18, that there are other plants that look similar to marijuana. Don’t freak out if you find them in your yard… :-)

  • No weed while weeding! :-)

  • Dear extroverts of the world, secretiveness is not just for drug fiends, it is also natural for introverts, who do not broadcast their business to the universe. I’m so glad my father was an introvert…

  • Obviously, teenagers won’t be moody, secretive, or have confidence issues if they aren’t on drugs. Absent drug use, teens are universally sunny, stable, open individuals who tell their parents everything. Errrr…
