First of all, it's "affects". "Effects" is the noun usage. Sorry a "pro-pot" stoner burnout had to point that out to you. Second of all, this whole "for the children" nonsense is worthy of Hillary "it takes a village" Clinton. If you're not a good enough parent to keep your kid from using drugs, it shouldn't "effect" the rest of us.
And I know some incredible parents who have had kids with drug issues. That is a BS argument from the pro drugs crowd. Do you really think that attitude and approach is going to win you support among us straights.
