I got caught on April 24th. I'm in high school still and I currently do not have a job. They had some suspicion (not sure what raised suspicion), then one day my dad woke me up asked me to go to the restaurant he owns to help him "unload some equipment". Me, trying to be a good son, I agreed. I was at the restaurant then he told me "I'll be back soon." I waited about an hour until he came back then said "Let's go." without even unloading said equipment (it was a lie to get me out of the house). The whole ride back home I'm talking and he's wasn't really looking at me and was sort of pensive the whole time. Short responses, little enthusiasm. We got off and he got inside and went to my room before I got there. When I got there I walk in to see him standing there. I looked on my desk to find my bong, 5 lighters, and a quarter ounce or so. (He didn't find my grinder, scale, pipe, or eye drops because they were hidden somewhere else). He said I should be ashamed of myself, took my phone and iPod which were in my pocket, and left. After he left I also noticed my laptop and Xbox were also missing. The next couple of days he didn't even look me in the eyes nor talk to me. He took all my money (300 or so), and my grandparents have accused me of taking their pills and they consider me a pathetic drug addict now, even though I don't drink or touched any other substance. I've drank a beer or two while smoking with my friends, but that's pretty much all. My dad has had me working at his restaurant this past week and a half, and so far he has only paid me $2.50. He says as a part of my punishment I have to pay to live in his house now, which is honestly unfair and whatnot but I'm not complaining about it. He'll probably get over it though. Well, I'm always depressed and I've been having a really bad pain in my lower left side, a little bit more towards my back. Every night I would smoke about .2 just to get me leveled and relaxed before sleep. I have no source of income or any weed at all except for when a friend offers (at school, which is REALLY risky, but it's usually during lunch off campus anyway). I can't get a job because I'm sure he won't let me, and I don't think I'll have much opportunity to smoke because they're most likely going to keep a close eye on me. I don't know how to get through to them, there is no changing their minds. I haven't really tried, but they weren't born in this country so marijuana to them is just like cocaine. I don't think confronting them anytime soon about marijuana is smart, but I talked with my dad about it the other day and I asked him to name whatever he thinks is wrong with it, and he said "addiction". I proved him wrong and gave him logical facts, to which he replied saying "Listen to all the bullshit you're talking" and that was the end of the conversation. This shit sucks.
