And how long do you think it will take for the family to reunite? Not long at all.

That is one crazy family. The kids grandfather and aunt says that there was no foul? I bet they all are growing pot somewhere and don't want to be caught.

I'll play the devilweed's advocate. I had this debate recently with a co-worker, I took the side of it being bad. The unfortunate thing he pointed out was there isn't data citing how bad it is at that age. Who's gonna test on a toddler? My own mother quit everything but pot while she was pregnant with me (she kept cigarettes as well for my older brother and I was bigger than him by the age of 5). She'd blow smoke at me in the crib to calm me down to sleep. I humbly admit ended up being very smart. Correlation doesn't equal causation, but it does point out out that it won't melt your child's brain.

Studies have shown a benefit for infants born to pot smoking parents. We all know there are numerous studies showing benefits for adults as well. I'm not encouraging people to let their toddlers smoke pot, but maybe that it being bad is mostly a social issue.

There have been studies showing it affects TEEN users negatively. I would expect it would also affect toddlers similarly. Of course there is the question of quantity/quality being used. A little might not hurt once in a while but everyday heavey use might hurt a lot.

Moderation seems to be key with so much humans do.

Or it could be, if true, that you just won the genetic lottery and ended up smart anyway. Parents used to give their children heroin drops at the turn of the last century. Quite a few probably grew up to be just fine upstanding individuals. That doesn't mean it's a good idea to medicate your child to satisfy your own needs.

I don't equate pot to heroin by any means, but could you link to some scientific body where these studies were conducted? I can swallow possible "no harm", but benefits? What, they come out wearing Birkenstocks and a mellow outlook on life?

ham006: Moderation seems to be key with so much humans do.


No way man. A study that shows slight side-effects to someone puffing 6 joints a day is totally conclusive that POT IS ALWAYS BAD!

Look, I'm one of the biggest advocates for a completely decriminalized approach to drugs.

First, that your brain did not 'melt' isn't a correlation/causation issue, rather it is an anectdote which demonstrates that it didn't 'melt' your brain. I used to melt down lead (sometimes bit it too when setting sinkers) as a child. I scored a 1600 on my SATs and graduated with honors from my university. It's an anectdote and shouldn't be viewed as anything other than a single datum.

Now, your second point DOES raise the issue of correlation and causation. The studies (which you have not named) do not suggest that pot smoking leads to more intelligent children. Could it be that parents who have enough disposable income to spend on recreational drugs might have the means to provide their children a better education? Hell, it could even mean that couch potato parents who lost their job for smoking on the job were able to spend more time with their children.

Again, I'm for a complete decriminalization of most if not all drugs, but you can't toss out these 'factoids' without hard data to back it up otherwise it is very easy to discount your argument.


And the final point: Having a young child inhale burning embers and smoke is poor parenting. How criminal it should be? It falls into my 'meh' category for punishment. As kids I used to pretend to smoke by lighting the end of a dried out rhodedendron leaf. My parents carefully observed me doing it and kept me from going overboard in my play.

This couldn't be the end result an overly straight-laced relative trying to get juicy foster parent money from whatever damned authority figure is willingly to pay them to take care of a 3 year old habitual pot smoker.

I got wonder if the toddler "didn't learn it from his grandma or grandpa" or rather being watched by the grandparents
 
2010-03-26 09:46:22 AM  
The parents are stupid enough to let this happen, and film it? That solidifies my point that you are a complete moron until you are 30; and some even after that.


/yes, 30

Well at least they weren't doing something cruel and harmful like raising the kid as a Christian or a Republican or a Teabagger. These are the cool parents we've all dreamed about having.

In all seriousness, a 3-year old really shouldn't be eating Funyons, Ruffles with french-onion dip, and a hot-dog bun with spaghetti-sauce, whatever-cheese-is-in-the-fridge, and pepperoni baked in the toaster oven. Then drinking ALE8-1 and playing Tekken until 2am.

It was kind of flat for tongue in cheek nonsense, but now that someone got angry about it, it's funny.

This is a bit irresponsible, but the idea that the parents will be in jail because of it is silly. You shouldn't let toddlers inhale Marlboro smoke either but lots of people do and they're not arrested for it. And it's probably worse for you than pot smoke.

In the southern state I live in it's illegal. It is, however, legal in New York, New Jersey,Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Vermont as well as many western states.Also Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Maine with certain restrictions.
