I had the privilege of meeting Patrick Kennedy, (Ted Kennedy's son), 
wife Amy, son Owen and Dr. Kevin Sabet. They are co-founders of Smart 
Approach to Marijuana, SAM.

Dr. Sabet worked in the White House doing drug policies and wrote a 
book called "Reefer Sanity" (Amazon).

Patrick, Amy and Kevin care enough about our youth and society to 
talk about the dangers of pot. We were at a conference in San 
Francisco. The subject was "Marijuana: A public health approach."

Dr. Nora Volkow and Dr. Stuart Gitlow also spoke. They are very 
knowledgeable doctors.

I found out how pot affects the brain and body. I wish you could have 
been there to learn the truth about pot. Doctors who give pot to you 
only care about profit, not you.

I said rebel against self. You are your own worst enemy. Putting pot 
in your body is destruction. There are dangers to your body, and you 
may get killed from home invasions and selling pot. Pot is not worth it.

It is sad that some of society is lying to our youth about pot, 
saying pot is good and easy money. But at what cost? Let's not throw 
our youths' future away on pot.

Please join Patrick, Amy, Owen, Kevin, Dr. Nora Volkow, Dr. Stuart 
Gitlow ( (, myself, and many others and 
say no to pot.

Let's make this world pot free.

Even dogs are getting stoned. Google "dogs stoned." Are we not strong 
enough to say no to pot?

Love yourself, not pot.
