    sup gc. sorry for the long post, but here goes:
    so im 19 and i live with my parents. i was always a slacker, but never failed anything in school, had little friends and had anziety, depression and anger issues. i started smoking young, and i dont intend on stopping. the problem is my parents. they discovered that i smoked, made a big deal over it, and my dad ended up kicking me out, only to have my mom bring me back the same night, much to his dismay. now they are convinced im on a path to destruction because of it. i did many unmentionables in high school, but i decided herb was best for me. my family owns a market, which i help them at every damn day. i would go to work stoned, and it actually made me more productive. i never failed any classes, i kept working, and mj didnt change my personality.  i know i should move out, but i dont have anything, and im still in college, which i dont want to stop going to because i want to make something of myself. my parents say pot is bad for my health and that im going to end up like the fucking tweakers in my area because marijuana will make me irresponsible and other ridiculous accusations. marijuana has helped me deal with much of the things that have gone wrong in my life and the demons that wreak havoc in my mind. i dont want to stop, but my parents, because i smoke marijuana and have defended it on several occasions, think im stupid, and that i am irresponsible and a lazy piece of shit, and tell my siblings to stay away from me. when i was still in school, they rarely let me hang out with the few friends i had, and i had to help out at the store we own since i was 12. as if that werent enough, they say im a lazy slob because i dont work right and i only go work for 6 or 7 hours. they wont even let my 16 year old sister go to sleepovers or hang out with her friends, because, seriously they fucking said this, "she might end up pregnant". my sister has social issues, as well as depression and ADD. i just dont know how to tell them theyre stupid. everytime they talk to me, i end up frustrated or miserable because of what they say to me...
    so gc, advice on how to deal with this dilemna? i just wanna get the fuck out of this hell hole. but like i said, im in college and dont have anywhere to go, and i dont want to leave my siblings here without me to defend them. what am i to do?
    edit: i forgot to mention, they would hit me and my siblings when we want to not do anything, or when we do something they dont like becuase its "rebellion". fuck...

  2. Maybe just pretend you've stopped, keep it out of the house and smoke away from the house?! I was gonna tell you to try talking to them but it seems maybe you just have some crazy parents :p sorry.
  3.      I know the feel man. I grew up in a strict, shielded, old fashioned environment with my grandparents. I wasn't allowed a cell phone even when I was 17. I wasn't allowed to go get my driver's license. I couldn't even go across the street to see my friends. I've been hit with so many things over the years. Frying pans, red licorice, (fucked up I know), and my grandpa legitimately punched me in the side of the head once. I was so convinced they hated me till I moved out at 18. I wouldn't even dare smoke when I lived with them, which is why I never started up until a year ago.
         22 now, living with my girlfriend of 5 1/2 years in an apartment and smoke relaxed knowing my grandparents can't do anything about it now. The weird thing is, now when I go visit them they're so fucking nice to me and treat me like I'm their long lost son. My grandma even apologized to me once saying she's sorry about how mean they were to me and they just wanted me to grow up right. It's weird but I'll take it. My point is anyway, you just have to suffer through it till you move out. It's one of those things you just have to put up with till you get a place of your own, and trust me, it sucks and isn't easy, but good luck!
  4. Do it in the bathroom or something man.
    I didnt read what you said cuz its an ugly block of text and very long and I am high.
    But thats what ima say by lookin at the responses
  5. thats how i got caught, i came home after having smoked. unfortunately, i had my bubbler on me, which was a large piece, and they smelled me and took my piece, 5 grams of some dank and a wide assortment of things i had on me when they caught me. destroyed it all. i dont like them much either, you can call them whatever you want haha
  6. I would talk talk to ur parents but mention how acustom youve become with mother nature...its just a plant. If they still get refuse just start smoking cigarettes in ur house.
  7. Well, thats really a tough call. About the weed specifically I'd probably chill on the smoking until you get your own place. So do you smoke in the house? If you do, try finding a place outside of your parents to smoke. Do you get paid decent for working at your parents market? Do they force you to work, or is it solely you helping them out? If you're doing it for free, you should probably bring that up if they're complaining you're not working enough hours. However, if you are getting paid, maybe you should start working a full 8 hours everyday that you do work. Maybe even try to work in some overtime? It would show them you're responsible enough to be holding down a job, regardless of who the employer is. As for your anxiety, how does weed affect that for you? Maybe you should go see a physician to see if you can get something to help that.

    Hon, you need a copy of "Granny Storm Crow's List! (check out the bottom of my sig)  When you have a copy of my List you can grab stuff like - (and I strongly suggest you read them before giving them to your parents!)
    When Your Kid Smokes Pot       (news – 2008) Written by an EX-drug counselor!
    Teen Pot Smoking Won't Lead to Other Drugs as Adults     (news - 2010)
    Operant acquisition of marihuana in man.      (abst - 1976) Not even 10 or more,1 gram joints per day slowed work!
    There has been a lot of talk about breast cancer lately thanks to Angelina Jolie's double mastectomy. 1 out of every 8 women get breast cancer! That is NOT an acceptable risk when we are talking about your mother! Perhaps you could just "happen upon" this fairly recent article on triple negative breast cancer (a very nasty kind!) and cannabidiol (CBD), the #2 compound in cannabis. FYI- CBD does NOT get you high  and has MANY medical uses! New strains of high CBD cannabis are available in MMJ states.
    Pot compound seen as tool against cancer      (news – 2012)
    “When McAllister and Desprez exposed the cells to cannabidiol in a petri dish, the cells not only stopped acting "crazy" but they also started to revert to a normal state… The researchers stressed cannabidiol works only on cancer cells that have these high levels of ID-1 and these do not include all cancerous tumors but, rather, aggressive, metastatic cells. But they've found such high levels in leukemia, colorectal, pancreatic, lung, ovarian, brain and other cancers.”
    Or maybe Alzheimer's is their deepest fear?
    Marijuana May Slow Alzheimer's      (news - 2006)
    [SIZE=10pt]“THC blocks an enzyme called acetylcholinesterase, which speeds the formation of amyloid plaque in the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease. The Alzheimer's drugs Aricept and Cognex work by blocking acetylcholinesterase. When tested at DOUBLE the concentration of THC, Aricept blocked plaque formation only 22% as well as THC, and Cognex blocked plaque formation only 7% as well as THC.” [/SIZE]
    And it seems that even....
    An ultra-low dose of tetrahydrocannabinol provides cardioprotection.    (abst – 2013)
    And they came to the "CONCLUSION: A single ultra low dose of THC before ischemia is a safe and effective treatment that reduces myocardial ischemic damage." So even a puff or two a day will help protect your heart if you have a heart attack!
    All but the last 2013 study is available in my List! None of those is from "High Times" or "the Hemporium", so they should be acceptable sources, as well as being somewhat mind-blowing! :eek: Cannabis is FAR more than "just" a way to get high!
    When you go through my List, keep your family's medical history in mind! If "Great-Uncle Joe" died of Alzheimer's, a few more articles on Alzheimer's might be a good thing! If "Aunt Rose" has Fibro, an article like this may be just the thing-
    One in 8 with fibromyalgia uses cannabis as medicine       (news – 2012)
    We have to show our families that cannabis is NOT what they were told it was! We need to present it as a medicinal herb with an amazing ability to treat many conditions! :yay:  It just happens that "feeling a little bit too good for the government's liking"  :smoking:  is one of the side effects, just like red eyes, hunger and thirst! (Which aren't that bad when compared with what you hear at the end of every single pharmaceutical drug commercial!)
  9. I agree with geetardude.
    Try to keep the weed on the low, finish college, then move out. Just handle your parents the best way you can. Parents are crazy and never understand. For going to school and working, i agree they're trippin.
  10. Assholes! :p my friend used to leave to smoke, she would just hide clothes so she could change, spray some body spray and leave her shit hidden outside. :p
  11. youre everywhere @briiiannna haha.
    i dont smoke at the house, and im not payed. but that doesnt matter, they dont care, i have to pull my weight apparently, and ive been doing so since i was 12, as ive mentioned. im only helping out to them, but im forced to work. they get me on my morals, coerce me basically. weed relaxes me, takes my mind off everything and gives me a break from all the bullshit i have to deal with
  12. yeah, i ask them what the difference from smoking a joint and a cigarette to relax oneself is, but they refuse to listen to reason. they associate it with so much crap
  13. What do you mean?
  14. im not sure, i tried to compliment you but i failed haha because you always provide some interesting feedback and i didnt know how to answer until right now hehe
  15. Dude, my immediate reaction to your post was: You need to familiarize yourself with Granny. And low and behold, she's already popped in here.
    Seriously, man. The best thing you can do for yourself right now is get educated. You're going to get all sorts of advice from very knowledgable blades, but you need the facts. Read some articles and have the tidbits in the forefront of your mind for the next time that this issue arises with your folks. Luckily for all of us here, Granny has us covered.
    yeah, ive seen granny around the forum providing infinite resources to other blades seeking advice. i dont think you can give rep anymore, but i would give granny some rep because granny is a great source of info
  17. well first question if you dont get paid from them and you go to school and work at the market where do you squeeze in time for another job?
    I was blessed with parents that smoked so I started smoking with them soon as I started like i think my third time was with my mother.So i dont really have knowledge based on personal experience. It really does not seem like they will ever listen. I would first buy a vaporizer I would recommend the mflb its small very easily concealed its a vaporizer so very minimum smell. You could use a sploof then no smell at all would be noticed.If you will be around them make sure to chew gum afterwords because your breath will smell like raw weed least mine does.Also its saves on herb.
    Also get a container that can contain scent very well I use a waterproof container that I bought in the hiking section in walmart. I have kids and i use these methods and although they are kids and are not really familiar with the scent of herb they have never commented on it if they walked into a room after i took a hit.
    Not that this relates but i had my grinder in cargo pocket of shorts and walked by my older daughter and she said yuck daddy did you fart....I just laughed and said nope it was the dog lol so i guess it does relate dont carry grinder
  18. Haha :p I try, I try!
  19. :cool: :wave:
  20. thats exactly what i was thinking. i picked up some applications and i will try to the best of my ability to get hired and get the fuck out of here
