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 disappeared with the exception of a few close friends.
His father is a grown up man and he can do whathever he wants. If the kid don't like it then he can find a job, rent a house and live like an adult man. As long as you're under your parents control then shut up and do what they ask you to do. Their house, thier rules. I'm sure his father knows that weed is not that bad but he's just disappointed that his son's starting to experiment with drugs. I'm sure his father wouldn't be that angry if OP was 10 years older and had a brilliant career. Right now OP is building his future, this is when OP's making the choices that will either get him a place at a top university or make him work for minimum wage for the rest of his life. This is only a few years and if you screw something you can destroy your whole life. I'm not saying weed will destroy his life but it's really not a good moment to start experimenting with drugs.
Every teenager experiments with drugs and alcohol. My ex has been smoking weed since he was 14. He's 17, with better grades than me. I'm an honor roll student right now. He has a good job that pays a lot, he takes care of his mom and sisters, he cleans every single morning, and he's a good kid. The only thing that'll fuck him up in the long run, is him not being able to be faithful to any girl he's with, no matter how god damn perfect they are. He's going somewhere in life. Weed doesn't mess up your future. Your actions do.
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:dr? Illegal drug use can seriously impact your future.
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
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.
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 seeing as the dad will most likely not follow through with op's punishment. So yes definitely FYL OP. Sorry your dad said those hurtful things.
^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.
I have gotten it myself not knowing. I'm not a smoker(weed) and definitely tripped. People do add stuff to it, same with coke or pretty much anything. It does happen, never known a pot smoker that didn't do harder stuff on occasion except for maybe 1 person. Lots of people are looking for a better or a different high.
#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
It sounds like your dad is a real gem to be around. Sorry you have to deal with such critics when he isn't much better. :/
Now that's a hypocrite if I have ever seen one cigarettes do worse damage.
