Many parents think that kids will think that the topics that rappers rap about will be cool, like selling drugs, having sex, etc. But teens know the difference between right and wrong. In fact, studies show that kids learn the difference between right and wrong at a very young age, at around 19 months old.

The tobacco industry understands that “culture is learned from parents and peers”, they count on that to be a driving force in young adults buying their products, Hair, J. F., Lamb, C. W., & McDaniel, C. (2016, p. 101). These strategies no matter how unethical are continuously used to influence youth.

Turner furthers, mentioning how you don’t have to be an unlawful citizen to try marijuana. All it takes is curiosity.
