  • There might be something more to it though... You do know that not being able to sleep and staying up is a sign of using Meth, right? Have you asked him about that as well? It sounds like he needs some help, perhaps there is some type of counseling you can get him into.

  • That you need to wake up and realize he's already using pot and alcohol! Better take care of this now, before it's too late... GL

  • it means if you know about it you need to stop it, call the cops on him, do what it takes. it's completely illegal for teen to use pot and alcohol. his brain isn't developed!!! put your parenting hat on and do something!
