  • I understand that your friends would never want anything to happen to the kids but when they are in a different frame of mind something could very possibly happen to them due to that drugs impair the ability to think right. I would Honestly take my kids with me because something cold happento them. I have friends like that but I don't trust them to watch them if they are on any drugs at the time.

  • I'd pick the potsmoker. I just don't think that impares you the way alcohol does.

  • If I HAD to choose:

    In this case I would pick the person who had SOME DRINKS. It's not like they are drunk! A lot of people have some drinks and are well below legal limit and legally can still drive a car.

    A joint would be more dangerous to me in this case...

  • I wouldn't choose either. Both things are irresponsible and impair you. I would take my kids with me.

  • if i couldn't take them with me then 100 % the pot smoker, alcohol in my oppinion should be illegal. it is responsible for many deaths, and violent crimes. i also think that pot isn't the greatest either but two very diffrent things. if i had smoked a joint i would feel safer to watch somones kid than if i had drank alcohol.
