Alright, folks, let’s get something straight here. I’m talking about the absolute madness of worrying about cannabis labels appealing to kids, when there are things like SunnyD vodka drinks on the market. Are you kidding me?
This is what passes for rational discourse these days? We’re getting all worked up about a plant that’s been around for centuries and has been used medicinally for just as long, while the real danger to our youth is lurking right there on the shelves of your local liquor store.
And what’s worse is that we’re not just talking about any old vodka here. We’re talking about vodka infused with SunnyD, a drink that is marketed specifically to children. Let that sink in for a moment. We live in a world where children’s drinks are being turned into alcoholic beverages, and yet we’re all up in arms about cannabis.
It’s a sad state of affairs when we’re more concerned about the packaging of a substance than the substance itself. We’ve been conditioned to fear anything that might be remotely associated with drugs, and it’s clouding our judgment.
But here’s the thing, folks. Alcohol is a drug. It’s a drug that’s responsible for more deaths, illnesses, and societal problems than cannabis could ever dream of causing. And yet, we’re perfectly fine with alcohol being marketed to us in all sorts of clever and manipulative ways.
And don’t even get me started on the hypocrisy of it all. Alcohol is legal, and we’ve accepted it as part of our culture. We glorify it in movies and TV shows, and we laugh it off when people get drunk and make fools of themselves. But cannabis? Oh no, that’s a dangerous drug that needs to be regulated and controlled.
It’s time to wake up, folks. It’s time to stop living in fear of things that are new and different. It’s time to start looking at the real dangers that are right in front of us. And if we’re going to worry about anything, let’s worry about the things that are actually harmful, instead of getting all worked up over a label on a plant.
So, the next time you see a cannabis label that you think might be appealing to kids, take a deep breath, and remember that there are far worse things out there. Like SunnyD vodka drinks.
What’s next? Camel cigarettes with cartoon characters on the packaging? Oh wait, that already happened.
