Political. What are you smoking.Jim: I could spend hours complaining about what has happened to the education system. I must tell you that I found cell phones to be a major distraction. Don't get me wrong, computers are a great tool, if used properly, for learning. FinLuver's remark is spot on, attendance has become a real issue. And to Mr. bhudda's summary of education I will say your list looks more like a political agenda than any classroom I am familiar with.
Firstly, let me say, good for you.For those of you that think canabis does not affect your thought train take this challenge. Stop toking for 9 months and then re-evaluate.
Been there done that. Glad I did and will NEVER go back.
If you can't stop for 9 months you have a problem and address it.
This has nothing to do with weed. One of my many great grandkids is starting school this year. In kindergarten they are going to start them on computers. They need to teach them how to tell time as they are taking the analog clocks out of schools because the kids can't tell time. He already plays with a smart. phone. Knows more about it than I did.
What ever happened to Reading, writing, and arithmetic. Did they get shoved to the back of he bus??
Firstly, let me say, good for you.
I dig what you're saying but I wonder how many of you anti-smokers (or vapers or whatever) have a medicine chest full of pills that are supposed to make your life better. Any substance can be abused and thinking the prescribers have only your good health in mind is dangerous, look at the opioid problem. My personal opinion is I don't believe in the myth of addiction. If you cannot control your urges, that's on you. But people these days refuse to be accountable for their actions, "the drug made me do it, I couldn't help myself." And I can't for the life of me, contain myself when these same people, who drink caffeine and alcohol and smoke tobacco, think they aren't doing drugs.
But hey, I still smoke. It makes the music sound better and I am not going to apologize for it. There are lots worse things a person can do, and for what it's worth, people who have never tried marijuana don't really have a frame of reference to be critical about it.
But that's just my opinion, I could be wrong.
I suppose I'm one of the dinosaurs - I'm 70, I don't smoke marijuana (I don't care if you do). I didn't vote to legalize it but its legal, I'm over it. I don't care. But honestly, what a not nice thing to say. I guess getting high for you doesn't mellow you out, man. Peace, bro.I can’t wait till the “dinosaurs” die off and take their outdated mindset with them.
