This thread is not about the efficacy of pot. It's about a child being taken from a family who was breaking the law which puts the responsibility on the parents who disregarded their child's safety knowing their actions could result in CPS actions. Everyone who is the least informed knows you don't do drugs with kids around.
Let's take this out of the United States. Let's make it some other issue and see if the same idea I am presenting applies. Let's say we move to an area that you are not allowed to walk around in shorts no matter how hot it is. If you do so or allow your child to do (not saying the kid was smoking pot, but she was in the same environment the smoke was) so it is known the government will take the child and place them in a very bad foster care system. Do you say, "Screw the law, I am going to do what I want" and then blame the government?
I guess you showed them how stupid their law is and you can repeat that over your child's grave in your self indulgence righteousness as you visit her on the anniversary of her death every year. I'm sure you will feel like you did all you could to lovingly care for her.edit on 5-8-2013 by UnifiedSerenity because: added my explanation in ( )
