Police, Should Parents Be More Concerned About Weed or Prescription Drugs When It Comes to Their Children?

Question by Joe B: Police, should parents be more concerned about weed or prescription drugs when it comes to their children?
In today’s society from your personal opinion, which is more popular and which should the government be concerned about?

Clearly in the past it was weed, do you believe this should remain the focal point of the governments propaganda or should they shift to prescription drug abuse?

Best answer:

Answer by rayven
Prescription drugs (PDs).

PDs are easily accessible in parents’ medicine cabinets and are very dangerous. A few pills can cause seizures and death, depending on the medications.

Marijuana is not known to have ever killed a human being, and the studies linking marijuana smoking to cancer is dubious at best.
