In today's world...YES!!!!! Absolutely. It should be age generated...like students between the ages of 18 and 30. Otherwise, students will spend wasted years in college and have learned nothing. This way the brain is clear and can absorb the knowledge. Cuz when you're young? Your brain is nothing but a sponge. But!

I say no because everyone makes mistakes and stupid decisions when they are young and immature that should not be allowed to ruin their entire life, and that should not bar them from getting an education. Also, "laws" and "policies" and "rules" like this are no more than part of the Arsenal being used in the WAR ON BLACK PEOPLE IN AMERICA , because who exactly is the 'kid' most likely to be stopped by police, frisked by police, have their car searched by police, put under surveillance by...

I would not recommend it but people should not be punished for smoking pot and especially when pot laws are disproportionately used against Blacks to meet the profit greed of the criminal justice system. Pot should be decriminalized or legal for recreational use.

The only reason the laws are changing because young white people are catching criminal records.
