There are times when Americans seem like a bunch of crazy fuckers. They are obsessed with shooting things, fixated on the sex lives of others, and oblivious to the harmful effects of fast food.
What America does do better than any other country on the planet however is worship our Lord and Saviour Jesus H. Christ, to the point where Sunday church isn’t a choice down south but an obligation. And say what you want about hard-core Christians, but don’t deny that they look out for each other.
Where in Canada are you going to get God-fearing parents warning other God-fearing parents about the public menace that is marijuana. And, no, the answer isn’t East Vancouver.
Down in the States on the other hand, we currently have a Christian parent’s guide to marijuana addiction making the rounds on the Intraweb.
If you happen to be a parent sitting around the house wondering “Has my child gone to the pots?”, you might be able to answer that question by consulting the above PSA. And by asking why Bob Marley, Willie Nelson, and Snoop Dogg are suddenly being played nonstop on the home stereo.
Remember that early intervention is the key to stopping things before they get out of hand. Especially if your child has graduated to mainlining marijuana broth, cornholing pot balls, or honking on a jibber whistle.
