What are your thoughts... On exposing Your own Children to Marijuana

I hope I spelled marijuana correctly.

I'm talking preteens and under..

With the current legal status I'd advise against it. Don't want a nosy teacher to call child services on you. When it becomes legal I'd encourage being open. Treat it like alcohol, explain the dangers and what can be done to mitigate them, and explain its negative effect on the young mind. Once it's legal normalization is best, for now secrecy.

With the number of hippies my daughter hangs around with, I'm thinking she already knows what weed is. She already knows about booze and getting drunk and hangovers and stuff.

I've told her that it's something okay for adults to do sometimes, but not for kids because their brains are still developing and these are things that can hurt that, which she understands.


I'm guessing that's what you mean by expose?
Or would you mean smoking in front of?

In that case, drinking okay, but not often.

Smoking no. I wouldn't want that to encourage smoking tobacco, which I consider worse than any of those other things.

But I should mentioned that in group settings, at the beach or something, other people smoking or drinking is okay as far as I'm concerned.

I mean all things within reason, right? This is the world. It'd be silly I think to try to hide your kid from ever seeing people taking drugs. Better to let your kid be exposed, but also be there to provide wisdom before and during that process.

I don't have kids and I'm a recovering addict. So I'm probably not the best advice giver.

But I would treat it like drinking in terms of talking about it, and talking about the dangers of using it and abusing it, just as can happen with alcohol.

And I'd treat it like smoking in terms of using it, I wouldn't smoke weed anywhere I wouldn't smoke tobacco with a kid present. Regardless of if the smoke given off from Marijuana isn't as toxic as cigarettes, I still find it obtrusive to ones health.

IMO i think that up until like say 10-12 years old, it would be quite easy to "hide" your marijuana use from them. So i wouldn't purposely bring it up and try to educate them, if they didn't inquire about it themselves.

Once a little older and more observant id just do what others already said. Treat it the same way alcohol is socially treated. However dont pull the common "it is only for adults", without doing what sir ex said and more fully explain WHY it isnt good for kids and their brains etc.
Without that explanation the "only for adults" line just makes kids want to do it more.

My ma told me since I was young that she never smoked weed.
... And then the story was she only smoked ganja a few times, but she was allergic to it.
...... And then I found out that her ex-husband was a big shot pot dealer around town.

By the time I got the whole story, I was already writing my own chapter on recreational drug use.

Personally, I wish she would have been honest about it from the start. Probably wouldn't have changed anything (I didn't smoke weed until I was out of high school) except for my overall perception of her. I think she gets embarrassed about it.

I don't need to know every circumstance under which my folks did their drugs, with who, or how. But some practical guidelines would have been nice. "Yeah, smoking weed with your homeboys can be fun, but stay away from that dirty cocaine shit" for example.

Not once during all my years growing up with my dad did he ever mention LSD.



Until 5 months ago when he was helping me paint a rental place.

"Yah this is like the time we all dropped window pane acid and painted our bathroom black"

My mom is a life long stoner but i had no idea till mid teens. Caught her smoking. We smoked together shortly after that i believe.

My dad is a life long addict and alcoholic, but i had no idea till around 12 years old. When he was using/drinking he would just do it after i went to sleep or on the DL.

Im glad i was kept in the dark about drugs and drug use for as long as possible. Once you know about that shit, your world view changes a bit imo, even weed.
Once it comes to light though, it definitely needs to be addressed intelligently.

My ex introduced my twin daughters to weed on the weekend.

They walked in on him rolling a joint so he showed them, and told them.

I care not about what people do in their lives and I do not judge because its none of my business..

I was the biggest stoner ever at one point in time.

I don't want to come off as self righteous..
I just don't think it was appropriate whatsoever and will deal with it accordingly.


My kids are good kids and my ex is a fucking idiot though. I don't trust him not to try to get them to smoke it some day soon even..

That could just be my bias assumption, but his past decision making is a blueprint of his future decision making IMO and its a blueprint for dumbassery.

He isn't very bright.

I'm the mom and I am looking out for my kids.
I think it is wrong.

It's such a hard topic because some people are responsible and some aren't. In this case the person definately is not.

from my experience of friends who grew up in smoker households, they all knew what was going on from an early age. You can't really hide it from them only lie to them and they know you are lying. Responsible education is the best. I only ever point out the fact that the negatives always outweigh the positives in all drug use and that being sober is the best.

turm, you know there isn't anything wrong with your kids learning the truth about weed.

the problem is that the info came from HIM, an untrustworthy source.

It would have been incredibly easy for him to just play it off as nothing and let them not be educated about drugs for at least a little longer.

Shit isnt necessary for like a 10 year old kid man...

And those of you who say that kids generally already know about shit if they come from a toker family... I fully disagree. It is so fucking easy to hide that shit from kids and still be stoned all the time even IMO. Kids are only aware like that if there parents are dumb and obvious about shit.
I know both types of stoner families.
