This book is not about promoting or discouraging the smoking of marijuana. This is about the reality of smoking pot and harm reduction. I discussed the idea of harm reduction the other day with a friend. He is a licensed counselor for at-risk youth and many of his teen patients smoke pot. We discussed the need for young people who smoke pot to be smart about it. Smart does not mean book smart. Smart means knowing how to be successful, thrive, and create a good life in the present which leads to the future.
