My Dad gave me some money while I was visiting him in Florida, $500. He was drunk the entire time that I was visiting him, so the money was sort of an apology. Yesterday I went out and bought a vaporizer and a grinder at a local head shop for $200. My Mother (parents are divorced), went online into MY bank account and looked at the $200 charge at the head shop. She called up the place and found out what they sold. Just just called me on the phone and confronted me about it, and I didn't lie to her. I told her straight up that I bought a vaporizer for smoking weed (she found out I was smoking pot a few weeks ago-by logging onto MY personal computer and looking at all of my bookmarks about growing, etc...). She gave me this huge talk about how weed "fries my brain" and that I shouldn't be using it during a time in my life where I need to be attending school. I tried to explain to her the real facts, but she won't believe any of it. Shes extremely narrow-minded. Anyway, she said if I don't return it (they don't have a return policy, plus I've already used it), shes going to call up my Dad and tell him what I spent the money on. My Dad has been an alcoholic for the past 20+ years, so if he finds out that I'm involved with "drugs" he would get really pissed, plus I'm sure he doesn't want to hear that I'm spending the money he gave me on "drugs". My Mom does have a valid point about something though, they are supporting me (paying for my food, gas, and car insurance. I'm paying for all of my education with money I've had saved up). She is angry that I'm spending the money that I get on drugs, instead of helping them out. I really can see why she is mad, because money is pretty tight (my mom and my step-dad both make decent money-we are just tight right now because of the economy and everything). I'm not too sure how to handle this situation, so any opinions would be awesome. I've tried having a real conversation about marijuana with her, but she is extremely ignorant when it comes to this situation. I've thought about talking to my Dad about marijuana, and just letting my Mom tell him what I bought; but I don't think that will go over well. My relationship with my Dad lately has been very "shaky" and this news would easily make us enemies.
