At fifteen, it is no longer considered child abuse.  I'd want them to come to me so that they would not get screwed their first time, and so they know the difference between good shit and shit.  then i'd inform them that if they want to smoke while they live in my house, they better be sharing! lol

18. I just don't see any other reason unless medically necessary for my high schooler to be hitting the bong. seriously they have kids in school all day and then homework..hard nuff for me to be going to college finally at 30 years old. Had I not been toking at 14 i would've perhaps finished school....

I think that depends a lot on the age and maturity level. If I don't think she can be trusted to use it responsibly, then no. But hopefully it will be legal, at least medicinally, nationwide by the time my dd is a teen, and if she has some of the same issues I had when I was younger that can be treated w/ pot I would consider it as an alternative to synthetic medications with unknown long term effects and unpleasant side effects. I'd probably limit her to edibles (I do a lot of cooking with herb) and tea, though, I don't love the idea of her smoking anything, especially while she's still developing.

Not until 18... they need to be out of high school or at least on their way out.  If anything comes up before then my daughters/sons knows who to come too... Our oldest is 7 and have already had to address drug use in schools with her.

I really think it depends on the child.  If they only do it occasionally and it doesn't affect their school or other activities I'm ok with it.  And like I tell my SD i'd rather her do it here at home with me than out with her friends where I have no idea what she would get and the potetntial trouble she could get into.

 OK, it depends on the kid, oldest started smoking when he was almost 16 years old ONLY on the weekends and when he had no school..... IF the grades dropped so did his smoking privileges........ our youngest shows no interest... however if  ( I PRAY he comes to us like his brother did) and when he is ready providing the right circumstances I will let him.. I was 13 when I started smoking and I believe this is a much better CHOICE ( because it is his choice) than any of the  alternatives.  Pretty much I say 15 / 16 years old AT HOME in a CONTROLLED environment.

Also would like to mention us toking with oldest son allowed us to turn him into a RESPONSIBLE smoker.

 I don't have a problem with my girls smoking as long as they only do it at home and do it in moderation.  Nothing wrong with coming home and smoking a J to relax.
