Looking for advice...

  1. Hello my fellow stoners! I've been looking for a site like this for way too long so I'm just going to get to my question. I'm a new parent and plan to still continue smoking bud. My fiance and I have been going back and forth about whether or not we should smoke infront of our child. I have mixed feelings about it. I don't see anything morally wrong with smoking bud so I don't see why I should treat it any differently than drinking a beer or smoking a cigarette in front of my child. But on the other hand, I don't want her to look down upon her own parents because society makes marijuana out to be as bad as doing crack or heroin. I would really like some thoughts on this and if any of you have children and smoke in front of them, I would like to know how you handled explaining to them that it's okay.

    Thanks a bunch! HAPPY TOKING!!!!
  2. As a parent, I think you should hold off token' in front of children until they are old enough ( Varies greatly from child to child ) to be educated, and understand your views. It's always so difficult to explain to young'uns the difference between society's laws, and Mom and Dad's personal views!!

    Programs such as D.A.R.E., tell the biased Govt. opinions, and confuse children greatly!! We are dealing with this problem now, with our 11yr. old. By explaing our views, and showing him the REAL reasons the HERB is illegal!!

    I'm always glad to "meet" another "Blade" here at the CITY!!!! :wave: :hippie: :smoking:
  3. Hey brother,
    I cant give you advice on your situation but i can tell what type of person my 19 year old daughter is after growing up around me smoking.

    I always come here and look around but i havent ever registered because i am overwhelmed with work on the net.
    I saw your post and had to take some time to maybe help ease your mind.

    Since the day my child was born we smoked around her. I always had some type of ventilation. Open window,exhaust fan etc..

    When she turned 17 she came in one night and sat down next to me and said Dad I smoke weed now please dont get mad. Then she pulled out a joint and asked if i would smoke it with her. And I did. I was hessitant but she has seen me toke thousands of times.

    I dont really know if we did the right thing or the wrong thing being open and not hiding it. But i do know one thing my daughter is now 19 and attending the largest university in the nation (univ of texas) and passing with flying colors.

    She is a very responsible and caring person. She is the cutest kid on the planet with a bubbly,cheery personality. She has made me very proud. Im not saying it will work for everyone but i am glad i wasnt such a bad influence that she is barefoot and pregnant living off of the government in the hills of loserville texas..

  4. I think if you choose to smoke in front of your child, you should definitely let them know what it's current status is in this world so they don't end up telling a teacher? Or?

    I don't have kids, but I have seen proof that you can raise a child within the marijuana culture, and they turn out damn good. It's just an extra responsibility you're going to have to deal with ~ explaining to your child the benefits/drawbacks of smoking, etc.

    I personally don't know what I'm going to do ~ probably not smoke in front of them until they're old enough to understand the concept of it, etc... I'd hate to have to answer a million "why's" and have them still not understand. :) hehe

    I really think once your child's old enough you should explain how these anti-drug programs tell exaggarated truths (or, outright lies) in order to keep the drug illegal. The more information you provide them, I don't think they'll look down on you @ all for smoking pot!

    Good luck, and congratulations on the baby~ :)
  5. if u smoke in front of them and be upfront about it then they'll understand as they grow up. just make sure they dont blab

    and i wouldnt recomend smoking infront of them if they're a baby....weed may be good but it can be harmful to the lungs, and the same way second hand tobacco is harmful, second hand weed smoke probably isnt too good for babies
