Diane Fornbacher, Publisher of Ladybud Magazine, recently posed a question online asking how people felt about the advice given to so many activist parents when it comes to having their family’s safety threatened by bad marijuana laws. Oftentimes, these mothers are told to just “move to a legal state.”
One detail that struck me during the open and balanced online discussion was a judgmental undertone that appeared to be aimed by dissenters towards the parents who agreed with the advice.
Respondents in favor of moving overwhelmingly cited their children and the effect legal consequences would have on them as their reason to move. Some responding have had personal, devastating interaction with Child Protective Services (CPS) already and are suffering the consequences. It is unclear if any of the parents responding in dissent have had CPS experiences.
