OP get back at him. The next time your mom is within earshot, tell him "oh hey, Ashley says hi" and he'll be all "Ashley who?" and you'll say "the one with the huge boobs" and then walk away. Your work here is done muahahaha!!

If you're young enough to be grounded you're not old enough for marijuana like seriously lol even hardcore weed fans have a line with the underaged I hope.

Wouldn't that result in more problems that involve you too because your a family. I'm sure he did it because he cares about you since he is your dad!

My response to this is.. If you can't even spell the state it's legal in correctly... You shouldn't be smoking it.. Colorado..

@135 I'm sorry, I got drunk and felt like feeding bs to the kids and sorry about religion too that's was my fault too

Just from reading these comments shows how many people there are who don't know shit about weed. It's sad, really...

135, suicide is not a verb. You can't "suicide." People "commit suicide." I don't know why so many people struggle with this.

Reply

135, You realize that nothing you just said is true? Weed doesn't make you depressed and it definitely is better than cigarettes. Using the terminology "One smoke of weed" clearly shows that you do not smoke weed, nor do you know what you're talking about.

158, even if it was legal it's nothing for children to mess with. wanna smoke it when you're an adult, go for it.

What *some* people want. As loud as those who are pro cannabis voice their opinion, there are still many who are happy it is illegal.

can you please show me one reputable source that "1 smoke of weed = 1 pack full of cigarettes." i'm pretty sure that is total bullshit. Also please say "me" and not "you" when you make a statement like "weed makes you depressed" - maybe it makes you depressed. never did that to me

#136, or 135.. I don't even know what number you fucking are. Please explain to me how any of your bullshit is true? In fact, if pot is so "bad" then how does it treat my epilepsy disorder? When no other medication could?

he kinda deserves it for smoking in the first place. if it's something you have to hide as a kid, you probably shouldn't be doing it to begin with.

But isn't it kind of strange how much time and effort he put into that deception? I mean, unless OP is incredibly gullible, faking a midlife crisis had to take more than just one conversation during which he tricked his son into not only telling him that he smoked week, but also reveal his dealer. That'd take at least a week of acting for me to believe, especially if the dad's normal attitude towards drugs is less than favorable.

Reply

Eh it was a poor attempt at referencing to an FML pretty recently. It was saying how his dad told him to shut up and then went into a coughing fit after trying to smoke.

I'm really wondering how he got you to tell him. When I have kids I'm definately using whatever he did to find out of they smoke.

He probably used the mid-life crisis thing to seem like he wanted to be young and hip by smoking weed. He then convinced OP to help him get some thereby revealing both OP's habit and his supplier. Just my theory anyway.

That's bullshit. MysteriousX gets the reference, gets voted up! I MAKE the reference, and get thumbed down! S/he's SMART!

Who even cares about the smoking aspect? You guys should take a moment to look up all of the uses that that plant has, since explaining it myself would take way too much effort in these wee hours of the morning.

While the exact point where medicinal purposes cross over into recreational purposes is hard to determine, there are clear examples for both. A typical recreational purpose would be someone passing a joint at a party to achieve a high. An example for a medicinal purpose would be the ingestion of cannabis after chemotherapy to alleviate side effects. The same goes for opiates - you wouldn't accuse a hospital patient on a morphine drip to be a recreational user, and you wouldn't call a heroin addi

Smoking every now and then isn't an awful thing. Some people smoke every day and they are good people. Then there are the people who smoke every day and do the stupidest shit when they're high. If you don't like it, don't do it. Preaching opinions about whether it's good or bad is a pointless argument.

Reply

There is a difference between recreational and medicinal marijuana. If it's used for medicinal purposes it is bred to be low in thc, and will produce either a very low high, or none at all.

Reply

While I don't agree with marijuana use at all, I think it's completely bs how everyone completely dismissed rorburts argument as invalid. While I like how later someone did bring up a more constructed counter point, I don't like rhetoric like saying clearly. You can't say clearly in a well constructed argument, because it's just rhetoric.

Reply

#144, if you want the abridged version of why people disagree with #85, it's because the argument is hypothetical and has very little application in real life. There is not much confusion concerning who is and isn't a medicinal marijuana user, and even hardcore stoners probably would not say that everyone is 'always using it medicinally'. There may be gray areas where it's difficult to tell, but to go all out and say that there are no strictly recreational users is nonsensical.

Reply

#144, when have you ever heard someone say "That is a good point. I will have to think about that." anywhere? It rarely happens on the internet, and never happens on FML. In my experience, this isn't a community that exactly encourages argumentation. It's why I usually don't even dare to offer a dissenting viewpoint on here. #108, My problem with how you define medicinal and recreational use is that as a daily smoker with my CA medical recommendation, my main purpose for smoking is to

Reply

#144, my argument was not that there are no recreational users. My point was that "medical use" and "recreational use" are two things that cannot be dichotomized.

Reply

But that is what you said. I didn't put words in your mouth, I quoted your rhetorical question stating that if the points you made about longtime benefits of marijuana are true, everyone is using marijuana medicinally, regardless of their original reason. That's exaggerating your arguments to the point of hyperbole, which makes your whole post look rather ridiculous. Like I said, there may be cases in between the two areas where it's difficult to determine whether the individual is using marijua

Reply

I do not want to go into how the medicinal/recreational dichotomy is used to label USERS - I never did and it's not important for the purposes of this argument. "For most users I've ever met, the distinction is pretty clear - they either would take it even if it had no hallucinogenic properties, or that's the whole point for them." You're making a distinction between medicinal/recreational users. My argument was not about that. You can create a definition for something; for example

Reply

Rorburt - With all due respect to your opinion and argument, I think you're confusing side effects with intended use. You take Tylenol to get rid of a headache. You do not take it with the intent of destroying your liver in the long run. People with cancer use marijuana to decrease pain and nausea associated with chemotherapy. They do not take it with an intent to get "high." The high they feel is the side effect of the drug they use to rid their nausea and pain. This is not recreation

Well, as a lot of people have said, Weed can be used for medical purposes. When I wrote this, I was assuming that the people who would take things far, or using it for recreational purposes. Bad wording on my part.

That's a pretty harsh speculation from 5 lines of text. Granted, his methods were a little unorthodox, but perhaps OP's dad is one of those caring parents?

Reply

28, yeah, maybe... He just has a really school yard delinquent way of going about it. For a father, the man of the house, would it have been too hard for him to put on his big boy pants & just have a heart to heart with his son?

Reply

It's easy to say people should do things. Try not to be condescending against someone who got the job done without harming their child.

Reply

yeah it is easy to say people should do things. I don't understand why OP's dad felt it necessary to have a premeditated plot to deceive his son into sharing something with him, when, by the sounds of it, OP was trying to be a good son & help his father during, what he was led to believe, was an extremely tumultuous time of his life. Why couldn't OP's dad simply talk to him about it? It's fine for a parent to betray their child's trust, but if a child does it, it's the end of the world?! Bit

109: How are you getting that much from 5 lines of text? Sounds like the story is a bit personal for you.
