On an afternoon run through a park, I passed a cluster of teens, all of them happened to be female. They were standing in a circle, maybe 5 or 6 of them. Maybe more? There were puffs of smoke rising from the center of the circle. From a distance, it seemed that they were hanging out smoking cigarettes. And, recalling my own teen years, I thought: "who doesn't hang out with a gaggle of friends and smoke at that age?"
As I came closer, I realized that they were actually passing a small pipe. And, I realized that they weren't smoking cigarettes, they were smoking marjuiana. I ran past them, not stopping. I thought to myself, though: "should I stop?" If I did, what would I do? What would I say? What would you do?
