Colorado mom needs to explain to son that marijuana is not ‘that bad’

DEAR ABBY: Due to various anti-drug lectures he was exposed to at school, my 13-year-old son believes that marijuana is not only illegal but also is very bad for you. He said it is poison. My state has recently legalized marijuana, and I am at a loss about how to explain to him that pot is no longer “that bad,” as people partake of it in a responsible manner going forward. Any suggestions?
