Yes, a kids' book about smoking weed.
Have you heard about the new children's book called It's Just a Plant? It follows the journey of a young girl as she learns about pot from her parents, a local farmer, a doctor, and a police officer.
According to the book's promotional Web site, it's "a book for parents who want to educate their children about the complexities of pot in a thoughtful, fact-oriented manner." WTF?
Check out this excerpt (and, no, we are not making this up):
One night, Jackie woke up past her bedtime.
She smelled something funny in the air, so she walked down the hall to her parents' bedroom.
"What's that, Mommy?" asked Jackie. "Are you and Daddy smoking a cigarette?"
"No, baby," said her mother. "This is a joint. It's made of marijuana."
We're all for hipster parenting, but this is ridiculous. What's next? A book about Mommy shooting up, doing tequila shots, or dropping acid? Aren't there some topics that should be off-limits to kids?
