Would you let you 16 yr old smoke pot in your house?

My friend lets her 16 yr old son smoke pot in the house because she says"He's going to do it somewhere it might as well be in the house".

  • This question is absolutely insane!! NO WAY! Idc how much it's "not that bad" its still illegal, its NO BETTER than cigarettes, and what kind of message is being sent her. Sounds like mom needs help and her kid. She obviously was exposed and it was ok when she was younger. Apples dont fall far from a tree, even if its branches are broke! P.S. I wld light my kid up (figuratively) if he ever pulled that one!!

  • No unfortunately I wouldn't just because it's illegal. Otherwise I would.

  • No way. That's such skewed mentality. Of course he'll be doing it elsewhere, his mom allows it at home! He's going to think it's okay.
    If she didn't allow it at home that wouldn't mean he'd be doing it elsewhere. Lots of teens don't smoke pot!

  • Well..........its illegal. I dont smoke it, but dont have a problem with adults who have jobs and are mature about it, smoking it. I dont thik I"d allow my teen to smoke it in my house.

  • Never! And the mom's attitude I don't agree with. My parents raised 4 girls and not one of us ever tried drugs, including marijuana. They just taught us right.

  • I think a lot of parents what to be" cool ' and forget they are parents. First and foremost you cannot be friends with your kids; you're the adult so act like it.

  • Welll actually even if my 23 year old lived in my home, he'd have to respect that I did not want an illegal substance in my home.


    If it becoems illegal he'd have to respect I don't want a pot head in my home, go get a job and you rown place to do it!
