Maybe OP wasn't necessarily searching through their things, but happened to see it sitting somewhere blatantly obvious. Either way, OP shouldn't be punished for finding the parents' drugs. Although, I think there may be an interesting bribe opportunity here...

Yeah, you don't exactly have to go looking for that stuff to find it. My dad keeps his in an otherwise empty drawer in his tool box, I found it while looking for a tape measure.

48-That's the part that was an opinion. If he'd rather do that, then that's his perogative. It doesn't make him stupid. Honestly, with this issue there are strong arguments on both sides, so it's difficult for me to firmly take a side. So instead, I just read what each side has to say about it...objectively, rather than being opinionated.

In my personal opinion weed is really not that bad, I obviously see the negative effects for someone who smokes quite often but for someone who only does on special occasions or maybe ever week it really doesn't do anything that bad, I only smoke maybe once a week and I'm still on honor roll I still have a great GPA... it's only when you abuse like my mom did that you end up really screwed :p

Cant people just NOT want to do drugs of any kind ever bc they just don't want to? Do they HAVE to be ignorant about drugs if they don't want to? Does it fucking matter if they want to do drugs or not. Personally, I think drugs are stupid and if your life revolves around it, yes even weed, then you might want to reevaluate a few things.

Jesus Christ people. What day and age will it be when everyone stops bitching about a PLANT being smoked its a damn herb. It's used medically. Yoi can't even overdose on it. Listen to this. He meds your doctor gives you, read the side effects. Most of them say, could cost failure of some organ or death or some bad side effect. This is weed's side effect. Amazing ass time for few hours. Minor brain cells lost( you make so many in one day unless you're a pothead it won't effect you really) No connections to cancer. You may run slighty smaller distances since you are smoking. Also it's used as a painkiller for cancer patients and many more medical problems, stimulate appetite and alleviate cachexia, control nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy, decrease intraocular pressure, analgesia, and neurological and movement disorders and many more. So please you uneducated people about marijuana maybe go research it before jumping to conclusions on how it's bad for you. In addition it would make billions of dollars surplus in this country, Dutch has made, don't quote me but i know it's between 3.2-4.2 billion dollars a year, USA would defiently make more. Also crime rate would go down... Create more jobs and countless people from going to jail which would save us a outstanding amount of money.

#66.....actually the chance of zero has become increased to zero because YOU CANNOT BE ADDICTED TO WEED. you can want it, but it has the addictive qualities of something like pizza. also, I have mixed feelings about legalizing it, but I do think that things like cigarettes which are much more harmful should not be legal if weed isn't. There's not much of a balance.

I agree that tobacco is worsein terms of the physical effects but I know so many people who have suffered mental illness due to smoking weed. My Aunty was with a guy who smoked weed his whole life and developed schizophrenia and he picked her up and threw her across the room (and she is a pretty big lady) in front of their four year old son. Also, my step grandmother's daughter developed bipolar disorder from smoking weed. And OP, I feel sorry for you having to live with parents like that. Even if you did smoke it they shouldn't punish you. You're only following their bad example!

Weed has never been proven to cause mental disorders the current thinking is that ppl with latent mental disorders try it to escape and when they later become full blown they look for something to blame

87- Like someone else commented saying weed is as addictive as pizza, weed has no nigotine in it and is not addictive at all, pick your favorite food that you eat alot of, that's what kind of addiction weed is to people, it's more of just something you like just like food tastes good, nigotine is a completely different kid of addiction same with herion addicion, weed is not nearly the same.

53 it kinda does make him stupid cause it's kinda a bit of cut off ur nose to spite ur face he's choosing a criminal record and the dangers of jail over 4-6h of being high which will not wreck his life

I'm gonna nerd it up! First of all, marijuana is one of the least addictive drugs out there. But it can affect brain development, like someone said earlier. What most people don't realize is that smoking a joint and smoking a cigarette has pretty much the same effect on the lungs. Both types of smoke has many of the same toxins. So really, while if you do want to do drugs, marijuana is one of the better options over cocaine or heroin, it's still harmful. So don't think that it's "healthy" because it's "organic" or anything.

Marijuana is better than tobacco. Its a drug, but since it can't be sold legally, it would just be the plant being smoked. There are poisons added to cigarettes along with tar and other crap. Marijuana won't have any of that added since its illegal, there are no companies trying to raise its price.

And I smoke it maybe once every other week. I still have a gpa of 98%, I'm in the national honor society, and I'm ranked 25th in my school. Since my gpa has gone up since I started smoking pot, I feel that it doesn't make people stupid, but stupid people blame pot for why they're stupid.

Reply

110 they say it has the same toxins but a fox news published study showed that pot smokers had a 2% higher lung cancer rate and the Margin of error for the study was 3% 9x out of 10

i'm gonna add my own three cents to this discussion and add that as a student in a school with abundant marijuana smokers, dealing with "potheads" can be infinitely frustrating when trying to do anything besides joke around with them. Based on this and the fact that concentration in school never hurts, I believe it does have a harmful affect on children at least. Adults may be a different story though.

173, my brain isn't working well right now so I'm not entirely sure whether you are agreeing with me or if the "FYL" was directed towards me. However, regardless of that, the human body doesn't make more brain cells or muscle cells. It only repairs them if possible, which will probably end up as scar tissue in a muscle. My arguments carry no weight considering I'm still just a student in highschool so someone, preferably a medical doctor, please help out here if necessary. Or better yet, it's probably on the internet somewhere, so google it. And if I'm wrong, well just correct me and I'll wait for the flood of thumb downs.

70- Go back to science class. Brain cells are the ONLY cells that don't go through the cell life cycle. They never reproduce, so you never get more. The brain cells you have now are the exact same you had at the age of one. Where is DocBastard when you need him?

Reply

Marijuana doesn't destroy brain cells it essentially clogs them for weeks after you stop using Marijuana. So stop with all the shit. No one knows how good or bad it is for you because no REAL studies have been done because it is illegal to have. The only studies will be done by the government and those will be biased. So before you go arguing over something that has no facts

That's why it's so heated. Everyone is trying to get high-er voted comments so that they can smoke everyone else with their "imagined superiority". 3 easter eggs are hidden above....(puns!!!!!wooo!!!!!)

Reply

200 it doesn't clog brain cells it rewires them for a short time (hours in the case of an occasional smoker) in fact there have been studies on mental capacity and they showed 8h after the occasional smoker was back to normal

I don't think op wants his parents put in jail. I wouldn't report my parents if that happened because I don't want to end up in a foster home or living with some random people, and I actually care about my parents.

If OP is a minor (which is most likely the case for being grounded) child services comes in and may take him/her away from parents. It may seem funny to call the cops, but the consequences are astounding. Unless it's for medicinal purposes, of course.

Reply

29- if it were in Aus child safety wouldn't bother getting involved unless it was smoked in front of the kid. Here the parents would just get charged for possession of a dangerous drug.

Reply

Actually they give approximately .5 fucks here in Los Angeles. It's a big state, guys! Though i'd say most dangerous drug offenders are NOT simply smoking marijuana. Usually it's meth that causes the murdering and face eating and stuff.

Reply

17 has a point. Just because parents do something, that doesn't make it okay for their kids to do it. It's not hypocrisy; pArents are adults and able to make their own choices. A child still young enough to be grounded is not. So if they were alcos would that make it okay for OP to drink underage? Or since the parents have sex, does that make it okay for OP to have sex (if OP is underage)? No, it doesn't.

Reply

Calm down guys. I was kidding. I can honestly say I've never done drugs in my life and would never give my consent to my children do drugs either. We don't know how old OP is. I had friends who still used to get grounded at 18-19 and still had curfew until 21.

Reply

That's still hipocrasy though. Talking someone to not use drugs and then using them is hipocritical. However, it does depend on the matter at hand as to whether it is suitable.

Reply

That's the joy and privilege of being a parent, you are allowed to be a hypocrite. Do as I say, not as I do and all that. I agree though, should've smoked it, would be worth getting grounded for.

Who said OP was snooping around? It could have been in an obvious place, or OP might have been looking for some random object that had been misplaced, like nail clippers for example. I think it's extremely stupid of you to be making assumptions like that.
