I have always been very open with my marijuana use with my two older kids. I was raised in a home where daddy kept a silver tea tray full of paraphenelia on the coffee table....every time we used the microwave, the entire house filled with the aroma of the last bud he dried out. I did not smoke weed until i was in my mid-twenties. There was no mystique to mary jane, it was just a weed dad grew in the back yard. I took a similar approach with my daughters. My oldest daughter tried it for a few months and as far as i knew (until yesterday) had decided not to smoke. She is an excellent student and takes upwards of 15 hours of dance every week. She is 16. My youngest daughter, who's 15, took me on a tornado ride the last two years with drug experimentation. To the point where her life was seriously in danger from her irresponsible recreation. I admitted her to a 6 month inpatient program because I felt she needed to learn to keep herself safe. She is home now and admits to smoking weed with her friends since being home. I have made it VERY clear to my girls that i would rather for them to use weed vs. whatever else is out there now, understanding that kids will be kids and i try to educate them as best i can on the effects of the drugs that are being used. I have also made it clear that i believe it is critical for kids to have a clear head during these years of school & development. They know that i would prefer them to be clean until 18! Now lets muddy the waters a bit more....lol. All three of us have been diagnosed with PTSD & Depression. Mommy has chose to medicate with weed, but i have the kids taking prescrip meds due to their age. I just cant bring myself to give my girls permission, my blessing to smoke marijuana at this point...at their ages. The kicker is.....lmao.....my youngest daughter informed me last night that my oldest daughter smokes weed too. (Yes, my 16 year old college student with a 4.0) LMAO! Wow. Now what?
