HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — Parents in California are so upset over marijuana-themed clothing being sold in a local store, they took action to have the items removed.
A group of parents complained to the popular clothing shop Tilly’s about selling apparel displaying images of marijuana.
Members of Youth Matters, a 4-year-old committee within the Parent Teacher Student Association at Edison High School in Huntington Beach, sent letters to the store requesting the removal of some of the items because they desensitized youth to drugs and alcohol.
It was reported that Tilly’s responded within a few days and agreed to remove the items.
Youth Matters Chair Kim Greene said partnership may be possible with Youth Matters and Tilly’s in the future, as Tilly’s is involved in a community outreach program aimed at 12 to 18 year olds.
It is unclear whether Tilly’s will pull the marijuana-themed clothing from stores nationwide.
