  • Nope. I dont think that at all. In fact, i dont think that it's that big of a deal at all. LOTS of ppl have a few beers after work and still manage to raise healthy happy children. and alchohol is worse IMO.

  • I don't consider it abuse unless you expose your children to it or are too incapacitated to care for them if an emergency or problem arises.
    You should try to quit, though, so you do not cause medical harm to yourself, but that is only my opinion.

  • if you are watching them while high or doing it while they are around its child abuse but if you go to a party and have someone watch your kids thats fine

  • My opinion is if you don't do it around them or deal with them when you are high it's not child abuse because you aren't even around them when you are doing it. As long as it doesn't affect them or your ability to properly care for them I think it's fine.

  • nah, its not abuse. You arn't exposing them to it. You dont watch em when you're stoned. Its cool. Its exactly like when a parent drinks. As long as she isn't exposing or watching them when she is. Its all good. You are not harming your kids.

  • uhh anon 9:10..doctors prescribe it to cancer paitents so they will have an appetite and want to eat. It doesn't help with the cancer.

    But anyway, no its not child abuse..if you aren't around them or taking care of them while high whats the big deal? Not my thing but if its not harming them I don't see it as abuse.
