I think you are

right to a certain extent about the propaganda aspect, but I also think that some of the negative response you would feel is simply because it is illegal. Whether or not we agree with the laws, at this point in time they are illegal and they make a point of drilling that into kids heads (especially in the public schools, i.e. DARE programs, etc.). I think most parents would be uncomfortable with someone suggesting that they break any law in front of their kids (i.e. "you want to go shoplifing with me, etc.) so that is definately a part of it.

I think that if marijuana is ultimately made legal you would see that perspective change to some extent, but there will always be people who feel that any drug usage is a poor decision for both themselves and their children.
