Do you automatically judge a parent if you know he/she smokes marijuana..

Even if they dont do it around their children? Would you consider them bad parents for it?

  • So to everyone who says they would... do you look down on people who drink?? Or take perscrip. drugs??

    No I personally wouldn't as long as they took care of their kids properly, and didn't smoke it around them.

    Smoking weed doesn't define a person... I have seen losers smoke and I have also seen very successful people who where smokers...

  • So long as they weren't doing it with their kids around, or during times when they should be working, then no. My opinion is the same for weed as it is for alcohol. I'm perfectly fine with it so long as it's not around kids or interfering with your everyday life.

  • i prob. would i mean if you get caught doing it cps could take your kids away. and to me i would care more about my kid than doing it. now if it was legal i don't think i would care it then would be kinda like alcohol.as long as you weren't drunk or drinking around your kids thats your buisness.

  • Honestly, yes, I would. As a parent you have to be a role model for your child. Also, why risk getting sent to prison and having your kids taken by cps? Not worth it just for a few minutes of pleasure. However, if marijuana was legal then I would not feel this way. I judge more on breaking the law than actually the marijuana itself.

  • Juliansmommy, Show where it is illegal for an adult to drink alcohol or take prescription drugs that is prescribed to them, then I will look down on them too. It's not so much about smoking marijuana as it is the legality of it. Why risk losing your child?

  • Nope. As long as it's not around the kids, I could care less what someone else does.

  • Yes. I do judge parents who smoke pot. I don't see it as a responsible activity and I'd still look down on it if was legal. I won't say I was an angel all my life but my wings sprouted as soon as I became a mom.
