How to disprove my dad?

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by Hylands420, May 20, 2010.

  1. My dad recently found out that I smoked and he seems pretty angry about it. when he was a kid and he smoked pot he got into some trouble and some shit. So he automatically thinks that I'm going to throw my life away just from smoking pot. I'm only a weekend smoker but he still thinks I will throw my life away. He says that smoking weed stunts the development of my brain but I don't believe it. I need something to disprove that. Whatever I say he comes back with I smoked pot and I got into trouble it's going to happen to you. I don't know what to say anymore.

    watch this with your dad
  3. His house, his rules. Many people will never allow reason and facts to override their government sponsored programming.

    Move out!

    Good resources include:

    Marijuana Law Reform - NORML
    The Union
  4. Ofcourse, there is another option..

  5. You don't need to be specific, but roughly how old are you? I disagree that smoking pot will stunt your development physically or mentally, but I do think it can make some people complacent and being complacent can be troublesome if you can't overcome it.

    I started smoking when I was around 15-16, and smoked regularly, 2-4 days a week, until I was 18 or so. I surely didn't fail out of high school, and am in no noticeable way mentally or physically harmed from the experience.

    I did stop smoking pot in college though (I know, that breaks the mold) because in order to keep up with my school work and professional work I just couldn't do it. I may have smoked once every two months but not enough to be considered a smoker.

    Having since graduated and landing a killer job in California, I've resumed my smoking (and am making up for lost time!) but treat it like I'd treat any other controlled substance. I won't smoke before work just like I wouldn't get drunk before work.

    It's all about self-control and, to some degree, moderation.

    If your Dad is worried about your academics, bring home straight A's. If he's worried about your health, go run a 5k. The videos already posted are definitely good materials too if you think your Dad would be receptive to something like that. As the adage goes; actions speak louder than words.

    Do some research.

    I can disprove one thing though. It does not stunt the development of your brain as it stops developing around the age of 18.
