I typically do not post anything too personal as I’m a very private person. Since Haley’s passing, I have had several parents reach out and confide in me struggles they and their kids have been going through. I think this is because anyone that knows me knows that I was a very involved parent with Haley and her life and had a very close relationship with her, so if I didn’t have a clue she was struggling, it scares them with their own kids.… Read the rest

About a month ago we discovered that our 16-year-old son had been vaping CBD oil with THC.  There is a perception that CBD oil from hemp is harmless and even beneficial and it’s not. By law, CBD oil is supposed to be no more than 0.3% THC, however, there is little regulation and that is only for the original Delta 9THC and the product had added THC in other forms derived from the hemp including THC-P, THC-H and HHC-P which fall into a grey area and don’t count in the THC limit and are not regulated. … Read the rest
