It's never come up? Do you live in a convent? It's only not come up because you've chose to ignore the subject. (and just to qualify, yes, that's an opinion, as is 95% of whats said here. Didn't know I had to distinguish everything I print. You sound a little paranoid.)If it's never come up, how do you know it's not how ‘they roll’? Maybe they do like to roll. Do your kids know you smoke pot? Since to you it's actually less harmful than alcohol, why not introduce them? Would you connect them with your dealer if they decided they like it? I've given you a shovel, keep digging, dad of the year.

They call it dope for a reason.

And it’s a far cry from alcohol. You can have a drink or two and still think rationally. Once you are stoned, even a little bit stoned, your mindset completely changes. And not for the better.

Why is it that some folks see alcohol use as a spectrum (drink a little, minimal impact - drink a lot, major impact) but think pot is like a light switch, on or off, and once on, you were all in?

Bramps, when you smoked pot, did you never notice that if you took just a hit or two off the joint the impact was considerably less than if you burned the big fatty all by yourself?

Because there is a giant difference. My point was clear.

Yes, your unsubstantiated opinion was quite clear. A story oft told, in fact, but mostly, like yours, personal opinion disguised as fact.

Invented "facts" are all the Drug Warriors have to work with.

It would be pointless to correct your mistaken understanding of ‘it’s never come up’, wouldn’t it?

As an alternative, consider teaching a pig to sing.

But my question is. why not bring up the subject? You are depriving your loved ones of the wonders of pot. They know you drink. Drinking is no different than pot, give them a joint or two and see what they think. Invite JustSayNoToNannies over with the kids, light up a couple joints, and have a deep discussion of whether or not Pink Floyd was better or worse when...when...oh,oh...I forgot what I was going to ask.

Just some good family bonding.

Seriously, your pissed right now at me for suggesting that you would ever do anything to harm your kids. Am I’m sure you wouldn’t. AND THAT’S why pot has never come up. A good parent, especially one who has smoked pot, viscerally knows that it’s more harmful than alcohol. Walk the walk, show your kids this thread and your comments, then get back to me. JustSayNoToNannies, you can just sit in the corner and keep eating your ice cream and taking the occasional bong hit. Maybe you’ll prove the exception and actually start making sense if you’ve smoked enough.

Merry Christmas. May all your buds be green!

Again, if I thought for a moment that you were actually interested in hearing what anyone with a differing opinion has to say, I’d try to correct your multiple misunderstandings. But I’m pretty sure you don’t really want that, you’d prefer an extra springboard enabling you to continue to hear the sound of your own voice.

Merry Christmas to you as well.
