California is rife with people who are excellent at talking about weed. But a communicator who’s interested in talking to children about weed? Now that’s an elusive voice.
Susan Soares, founder of Cannabis Awareness Research and Economics, is one of those voices. Her new publication What’s Growing in Grandma’s Gardeen? is an illustrated children’s book that can’t help but make adults better at The Talk.
- “It’s not all magic and unicorns but it’s a pretty fabulous plant,” Soares says. “For most children, it would be better for them to wait until their brains are developed before they start consuming it. What’s Growing in Grandma’s Garden is a conversation starter, you can keep it light or get as deep into it as you want.”
