A Teton County School District No. 1 board member is calling for parents and educators to discuss pornography addiction.

“I think this is an incredibly important subject,” Trustee Joe Larrow said. “There are new science-related facts that the same neural pathways that get affected by addictions to things like alcohol and pot are also activated while watching pornography. Kids can get addicted to porn in the same physiological manner that they get addicted to other things.”
