  • I would... but keep in mind, when you report.. you and your family will be investigated too, I know cuz it happened to me, not that we had anything to hide.

  • Since CPS cares about people smoking weed when it isn't around the child than I would call if I knew that they were smoking it with the child right there.

  • I would not. Not that I am saying that it is the best choice to make as a parent, but not the worst either.

  • No I grew up with my dad and mom smoking it.I also have breathing problems. It might not be the smartest parental choice but if the child is loved, cared for, fed, clothed ect I would not.

  • No. If they were making the child smoke weed, I can see calling CPS. Why is it your life's mission to take a child from its parents because you do not approve of their lifestyle? Seriously.

  • no i just dont think an innocent BABY that didnt have a choice to come into a world where its parents want to contribute to a health issue is the best for the baby. the baby doesnt know better to try to get away when the family is smoking right next to him.

  • Sure, call CPS, have the children removed from their own family to a foster home where they will be sexually and physically abused and neglected. Yep, you go on ahead and do that, it's so much better for the kids, dontcha know.
