On Friday, November 20, Laura Stack presented the story of Johnny Stack, via webinar, on the first anniversary of his death. Her presentation, A Mother’s Story of Her Son’s Death – How High-THC Marijuana Took My Son, and How to Keep it from Happening to You, was powerful and moving!
Johnny was thirteen, almost fourteen, when Colorado legalized marijuana. He, like many other adolescents, thought the state’s normalization and promotion of this drug meant it was safe.
Unfortunately, Johnny took to “dabbing,” using the most potent form of marijuana. He experienced psychosis, mental health issue and ultimately took his life, despite being a brilliant student. His mother, Laura, and other family members started, Johnny’s Ambassadors.
Laura explains dabbing with great clarity, finding it amazing how much parents do not know. We warned about dabbing six years ago, but the country hasn’t learned yet.
We’ve been sounding the alarm for almost six years, and it’s unfortunate that too many casualties occurred in the meantime. Laura’s testimony was published here.
