Maybe his dad just doesn't want him to become an addict to drugs like himself. He probably regrets being a chain smoker and cares about his son enough to stop him? There's two sides to every story....

I have to agree with #89, I smoke and it is a bad habit to quit. I never smoked weed, but ive smelt it didnt care for it. Also could be thr fact that your under his house, his rules.Plus, trying to keep you from getting it on your record if you do happen to get caught. There is always two sides to every story and if you tried it once, just either becareful and dont get caught or avoid it all together. My sister used to smoke it before and once she quit weed, most of the friends she hung out with

Smoking in general is bad but your dad is worthless pos for saying that to you. People need to start realizing they need to build thier children up because the world is already going to knock them down.

Sorry, but no 'every teenager' does not experiment with drugs and alcohol. Plenty of kids avoid it. And like it or not drug use even as a teenager or young adult can impact your life later on especially if you get a conviction. Some careers have 'moral character' requirements and will check for a history of drug use. Plus if you get caught with it and the authorities decide you had intent to sell they can charge you with a felony which further limits your education and job opportuntitties. Tl

Weed can have the same effects as tobacco smoking over time, and cause brain damage in addition. You can read about it at http://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/marijuana But the point of this FML isn't that he shouldn't be punished for weed but that his dad shouldn't smoke.

Build their children up? You're right, someone should let their minor child smoke weed and be totally ok with it because smoking pot builds lots of character in a person and adequately equips them with the skills to effectively handle the world around them. Especially if you're a parent that smokes cigarettes. Wouldn't want to look like a hypocrite.. O wait

@101 based on your profile picture I doubt you have a boyfriend. I also hate how people say " experimenting" with drugs like its no big deal and that people shouldn't have any problem with it. Drugs harm you and are illegal (even weed) don't do them kids.

#107 you actually believe that absolute 100% bullshit they say on there? lol I didn't get past the second paragraph. Although the federal government considers marijuana a Schedule I substance (having no medicinal uses and high risk for abuse This statement is 100% incorrect.

Reply

I have to wonder if this was a first offense. And how many kids do drugs because their parents do drugs? Either way, it sounds very hypocritical for dad to insult his kid for having tried marijuana and then go smoke cancer sticks.

Reply

Im pretty sure inhaling any kind of smoke would cause some sort of damage, especially over a long period of time. The only difference is, tobacco has shown proof of physical addictions, while weed has not. Therefore, tobacco would be the worse drug, and not weed.

46, that show is full of psychological addictions. Tobacco causes physiological addiction, where use actually changes the body's chemistry. Quitting from a physiological addiction will cause physiological withdrawal symptoms, whereas quitting a psychological addiction won't.

Reply

A person is fully capable of experiencing withdrawal symptoms from a psychological addiction. they may not go through quite the same symptoms, but it still happens none the less. Smoke weed if you want, but let's all quit pretending it's a magical, fairy filled substance that cures everything, and not just another addictive substance.

Smoking weed can not cause cancer of any type @96. If it could in any way shape or form they wouldn't prescribe it to cancer patients... Aside from that, this is not an FML. OP got caught doing something illegal, his dad smoking is not illegal. That does make him a hypocrite and definitely doesn't make this an FML. Just a kid whining about the fact that he got in caught.

The fact that he can be grounded seems to say it is illegal or at least not legal for his age or tolerated under his parents roof. So yes I say YDI as well. When the OP is living on their own, paying their own bills etc, then they can live freely.

Reply

being grounded for something doesn't make illegal, op's parents might just be against pot, drinking is legal, but I know people who aren't allowed to drink at home despite being the legal age

Reply

Yes op's dad is a hypocrite, however that's not really the issue. I'm assuming OP is under 18 and he lives in his parents house. Chances are it is illegal where they live, even if it is legal he's probably underage to be using it and on top of it the rules of his dad's house is no weed. So for those reasons it is a YDI. However, with that said, no parent should call their child a useless waste of space and being grounded for a year is not only ridiculous but defeats the purpose of the punishment

I hate that term, biggest crock of hypocritical shit people say. You know children are easily influenced, so set a good example instead of spouting nonsense

Reply

What I was on about is "do as I say not as I do" just tells the child its ok for one person but not another, hence showing thema hypocritical double standard.

Reply

^not unless you explain to the child that when they are an adult and paying their own bills that they are able to make the decision whether they want to do that or not. It's not hypocritical for a parent to smoke and tell their child not to smoke until they are living on their own and paying their own bills. It would only be hypocritical if said parent was living with their parents and not paying for their own way etc.

Smoking cigarettes isn't illegal. Also, there are those that do put other things in the weed like LSD. Not hypocritical really. He doesn't want the OP potentially getting arrested or if it is legal then he doesn't want the OP getting high that's all. You smoke cigarettes so I should be able to get high? What the hell, most know cigarettes are unhealthy, but they aren't pretending it is harmless or good for you like a lot of pot smokers do.

Reply

Where the hell are you getting weed with LSD? That's the most improbable scenario of weed being laced. That's like saying "Hey kids, if you're gonna do the weed make sure you use clean needles." Just saying

It wasn't LSD, that was my only point.... and new point, lots of chemicals make you "trip". Combustion doesn't activate LSD's effects. Hence above comment. Science Bitch!

Did you just say it's better to do something that you know is bad for you than something you don't know is bad for you? Did these words actually come out of your brain?

Reply

#80 that actually makes sense and here's why. When you know something is bad for you chances are that you know exactly why it's bad for you, you know all the risks, and you know exactly what you're getting yourself into. However, when you don't know that something is bad for you, you're not aware of and not prepared to deal with any of the risks. I don't know about you but I'd rather know exactly what I'm getting myself into than get a nasty surprise

Reply

Actually, pot has been clinically proven not to cause any detrimental damage to the body. Yes, it may be illegal in most states (the only con about it), but it is ten times better than smoking cigarettes.

Reply

Whether or not it was LSD isn't the point. I tripped, or whatever and it there was something else than just pot. People do add things into weed, and to get something laced unexpectedly is really a big concern especially when you aren't sure what else they put into it.

Reply

No where in that post does it state an age. For all we know, OP could be in their twenties. It doesn't matter how old someone's kid is, they will still get onto them for doing something they think is wrong.

Reply

I don't know many 80 year olds who's parents are still with us, much less being grounded. Again this is where the deductive reasoning portion of my post becomes relevant.
