Would you drink and/or get high around your kids?

A friend of mine went to a party for a teen's birthday and the parents there were drinking and smoking pot.

What do you think of this? Do you do this or know people who do this?

Would you drink and/or get high with your kids around?

 

It seems odd to me!  I can see drinking but I wouldn't want anyone smoking pot around my kids!

We drink at family gatherings but its a drink... Not getting drunk.

We have quite a few family members that smoke as well but never around the kids.

 Are they high around the kids?  Do you think the kids know that they're high?

Its not fair to cluster a legal activity with a crime.  It not like you are asking if people  get DRUNK.  Just having a glass of wine when kids are present is a far stretch from getting high

 Yeah - I think drinking is ok but not getting drunk or high in fromnt of your kids. 

I do know a lot of parents who won't drink at all in front of their kids.  Then there are others who do it all in front of their kids...
