Weed and Mentoring Don't Mix - A message for the membership
When you smoke weed, it gets into your hair and on your clothes. When you are around parents and mentees, the smell is inescapable. Since weed is legal in California, Nevada, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Michigan, Maine, Massachusetts, and partially legal in many other states, what you do in the privacy of your home is your business, but do not come to any 100 events "buzzed".
Do not wear your 100 pin or go anywhere representing the organization smelling like weed. If you feel this is too intrusive into your business, you are free to give up your membership. If a potential funder or sponsor comes into contact with a weed smoking member, it could seriously damage our ability to get funding or provide programming for students ages 11 to 17.
Drugs are opposite of what parents expect of us in working with their children. Our partnership with colleges, universities, local law enforcement, other charities and community based organizations we align ourselves with could be jeopardized, and our insurance coverage could be at risk if there is an incident while a member is "Lit".
