I would be mostly concerned about them using drugs to get high, which I don't consider to be a healthy practice at such a young age. I would also worry about it contributing to a lack of motivation. I don't feel most teens are equipped to manage those effects responsibly. And of course I would worry about the carcinogenic effects of smoking.



ETA No legalization would not change this.

I'm 22 and I've never seen weed before. So needless to say I've never smoked it or anything. In my house I won't stand for it.

I would not like it at all. I also dont want him smoking and drinking excessively either. Under 18, I'll do all in my power to prevent and keep it from happening, older than 18 and out of my home? If you don't want to hear my mouth, I better not hear about it, see it, taste it in the air, smell it or accidentally touch it and I'll leave you be.

It's legal here in WA.
If my son wants to smoke weed he needs to be of legal age.
If he were to do it before I would definitely want to know about it- I would be more mad if he hid it from me.

I wouldn't care, as long as he was being responsible about it. Never driving while high and maintaining good grades at school, I don't really see a problem with it.

Neither do I. But others who smoke it? Like friends. I don't care. My children? I would hope she doesn't. But it won't be in my house. I don't think it'll ever be legal here or at least for a very long time it won't be.

Depends. If we still lived in WA, and they were 18, sure. It's legal. If they lived where it wasn't legal and obtained a medical card to do it legally, sure.



Otherwise, NO. It will hinder job opportunities and could possibly land them in jail if done so illegally.

Nope! It won't be tolerated.



If it was legal, they can do it when they are of the legal age, just like alcohol. Heck, if it was legal, you can bet I'd be smoking it up myself! I miss it, not gonna lie :lol: But I still wouldn't be okay with them doing something illegal if they're underage. If the law was the way it is with alcohol here, where it's okay at home with parent's consent, then only after 18. And they can buy their own. I wouldn't give them any myself.

I haven't either, but if my children are adults and doing it legally, what can one do, you know? Plus, I'm not against weed. I don't think it's harmful. I don't think it's necessary, either, though.

I honestly don't think it'll be legal here, if ever, for a very long time.



And I'm not against weed either.

In the US? A couple states have already legalized. Washington and another state.
Anyway, I meant with a medical card. One can be easily obtained, which makes it's legal for card holders to smoke weed.

It depends what kind of child I have. My sister and I were caught around that age and I got a slap on the wrist and told "there's a time and a place" and my sister was grounded and had to drop all her friends or my parents said they'd pull her out of school lol.



I would rather DD smoke weed then drink, and I don't think it's a gateway drug lol - that doesn't worry me.



But I mean, if you're kid is going to do what they want anyways there's not much you can do but "support" them - unless it's hard drugs but I mean drinking and weed I'd probably just educate her and send her on her way. At 16 she could move out and do what she wants anyways (I live in Canada).



However if she's naive and folds under peer pressure I would ground her and never let her leave the house for smoking ahaha
