Our 17 yr old DD asked to have a friend spend the night last night. It is summer vacation, it is hotter than a pepper sprout here and we have a pool. So we said sure. The girls asked if they could walk to a local carry out for some junk food and we told them they could go. Prior to their leaving, DD's friends purse was sitting on our living room floor up against the sofa. The girls left. A few minutes later our oldest DD who is 20 came into our bedroom with a plastic baggie filled with a small amount of pot. She said our Golden Retriever was laying on the floor chewing it.
I looked at my DH and said, her friends purse was right on the living room floor before they left...maybe it fell out. When our DD returned, she said it was not hers, and that her friend didn't smoke pot either. She said during the day a boy from our neighborhood was over and was sitting on the couch, maybe it was his and fell out of his pocket.
Well needless to say, we are not happy about her hanging around anybody who smokes pot, nor are we happy that anyone had the nerve to bring that kind of thing into our home. I just don't know what to do about it. Teens lie, we all did it, if we are honest. I believe it was not my daughters, but I am not buying the boy story much.
How would you handle this situation. We flushed the pot btw and said nothing further until we have some time to think about the situation.
