  • Leaving legalities out of it, I would say they're fairly even. It's about moderation. If someone is drunk out of their mind then they're not fit to parent. Same goes for someone who is stoned out of their tree.

    If it's a glass or two of wine, or a beer then there's nothing wrong with it that I can see.
    If they're just a little stoned to take the edge off at the end of the day then big woop.

    If there is a sober parent in the house with the kids who are sleeping then who really cares how intoxicated the other one gets? As long as the kids are safe and taken care of and not exposed to it while they're awake then it shouldn't matter.

  • wine is a hella worse. I can black out after my 2nd glass. Thats why if i drink it i have to limit myself and drink very slowly. I dont smoke pot any more but it never made me feel like i was going to black out.

  • I think that it doesn't matter. Go to your local grocery store and look down the multiple alcohol isles. Look really hard. there would not be that much alcohol if it really mattered. Then go to the gas station and look around ask for a blunt wrap or a swisher and note how cheap it is. Or ask for a pack of zig zags. Marijuana used to be legal in the US. Thomas Jefferson, George Washington they smoked it and wanted it to be available to the public. You could pay taxes with weed when this country was started. It is illegal mainly due to lumber lobbyists. Alcohol used to be illegal. It costs billions of dollars to jail non violent offenders who grew MJ. It costs billions of dollars to repair the damages caused by drunk drivers, violent drunken fights and other issuses aroused by booze. But for the average american having a doobie or a drink no harm no foul. In fact teach your kids about both. Knowledge is power.

  • MJ, because it is illegal, and the smoke is inconsiderate of your neighbors.

  • I think everything in moderation....but pot is illegal...so wine. I'm just saying "in moderation" because if you dont smoke to get stoned or drink till you cant stand, you can still function. but everyone handles them differently.
