As a teenager, I am told to start acting and speaking like an adult. However, when I voice my opinions, I am told that I am too young to be talking about "these issues". There's no respect. Remember parents you are raising adults not children.
The thing with drugs is that people take them of their own free will. You consent to smoke your own joint, and yet people who rape without the consent of the other person gets off with a lighter sentence than drug dealers.
