Getting high around kids?

So, last weekend I was at a party to celebrate my friend's son's 16th birthday (he and my daughter are exactly 3 months apart).  There was alcohol at the party so most of us had a wine cooler or a margarita.  Three parents (a single mom and a married couple) decided that they were going to share a joint on top of the alcohol they'd consumed, and the single mom was already pretty well lit just from drinking.

I didn't say anything, but did talk to my daughter when we left.  I felt that it was just not an appropriate time/place for parents to be getting high, or drunk, when they had kids at the party.

Would you have said anything to these parents?  Do you think what they did was ok under the circumstances?  Am I just too "straight" when it comes to stuff like this?

was it their house? then its their choice, just like you made the choice to leave. its ok to not want to be around it. i respect that 100% i myself am a smoker, now i dont do it around my kids, just like i wouldnt have a cig around them, but its my choice. if choose to smoke pot in my home with my friends at a gathering that im having, and i have for the record, its my choice. but its always in a place away from children,and others, like in the garage

Personally I do not agree with getting high around the kids. I would NOT ever do it . Pot or not. I just dont agree with it. I would have also been forced to leave. I know its their house so their choice but there is also a thing called respect. So many lack it these days.

It's definitely NOT something I would do.

Drinking no issue with me.  The minute the drugs came out I would have left.

No, it was not their house.  It was the sister of the married woman who lived there.

Not their house, but the homeowner didn't say anything.  One of the women is her sister.

We did leave shortly after the pot came out.

 This is not something I would ever do.
