  • IDK,,,Im in a bad place with that right now. I have new neighbors, two college students and they party all the time at night. My sons window faces their apt and he told me he saw a bunch of guys standing around the kitchen table smoking a bong. Thats tough as a parent ya know. I have tried so hard to raise my kids to not want to experiment with drugs and alcohol and here it is literally in our own backyard....sigh. its just frustrating at this point for me and the worse part is, they dont seem to care how loud they get or how long the party goes for....

  • Alcohol and prescription drugs which are legal are much worse for you than marijuana.

  • ...They aren't really worse. All these things have an effect on your body. Pot has over 400 chemicals in it. Those chemicals get absorbed into the tissues of our bodies.

    "But it is known that marijuana smoke contains some of the same, and sometimes even more, of the cancer-causing chemicals as tobacco smoke. Studies show that someone who smokes five joints per week may be taking in as many cancer-causing chemicals as someone who smokes a full pack of cigarettes every day."

    You know what they really want from it? Money... If they tax this, they can make some significant cash.

  • IMO Pot smoking leads to other things with a lot of kids.. Also when you become a parent, you should set an example for your children, and even if you're hiding it from them, it's still wrong to put your family at risk for a short term high... Is it really worth it?
    As for living by people that do it, I think I would be calling the authorities, and then possibly moving, if it's an option... Do you really want your children to think it's right to make bad choices, and treat themselves with such disrespect? JMO BTW.....

  • yea ummm so smoking pot is bad examples but theres nothing wrong with smoking cigs and ur kids knowing it yea okayy its not like its something that is around them but ppl smoke cigs in front of their kids all the time and thats not looked down on the onlyy reason smoking pot is sooo much worse is because it is illegal but the onlyy reason it is is b/c ppl were losing moneyy on lumber b/c hemp was taking its place which is a great thing we need to keep our trees

  • I have looked into it. I have to take health classes and drug classes for my major. I know the effects and I know the chemicals... all these things affect our bodies. They stay in our system and affect the cells in our bodies. Do you know how long it takes to regenerate those cells? 7 Years! And just because no one has died from it, does that make it okay? You don't die from AIDS, you die from illnesses you get while having it because your immune system is so shot. You hold in pot smoke longer than you hold in cigarette smoke and that can damage your lungs. Do you think that makes people care though? No.. Even though cigarette specifically say that they will cause cancer... people still use them.
