Since cannabis is pretty much every where now would it be fair to consider it the same as alcohol in child welfare cases?
This is specifically aimed at parents of young children who smoke cannabis. For years many of us hid in silence in fear of losing our jobs or worse a visit from social services checking up on your kids. We all seek comfort from something, when I compare the two clearly to me anyway cannabis is far better. It is known that alcohol is truly far more destructive than most substances in the world. Saying they are the same isn't fair but considering how it's in the context of societal norms sure I'll take it as a win for all parents who just need some weed.
The article talks about our Governor Gavin Newsom passing a bill this past Tuesday mandating that all social services workers are to treat cannabis the same as alcohol in cases where children are involved.

Next up we have safe drug use sites and on this one Gavin Newsom vetoed it citing concerns over more wide spread use of illegal substances. Right now the state of California has been seeing a spike in overdose cases and this Bill was designed to help those who want to use street drugs to do it in a safe place where overdosing would be a thing of the past.
These sites have medical staff on hand in case anything goes wrong, on an NPR episode a guest of theirs who shared their experiences with these safe spaces said "I use Fentanyl, I've overdosed multiple times and was revived every time. Perhaps this is the concern that was expressed by the Governor, with no more consequence people would certainly abuse that luxury too.
What is the correct decision is up for debate you decide for yourself and vote.
