You can't expel me. When dad isn't stoned he tends to be angry and wants to kick my ass.

Are we surprised?  This is why adults don't take found drugs (adults who don't do drugs) to the police station, we don't want to be arrested.

Poor little brainwashed kid got used by his mother to make her divorce easier.  Them broads.

He's, like, soooo grounded, man.

This kid just learned a valuable lesson about trusting governmental authority figures.

While I think pot should be legalized, I'm weirded out by people who smoke pot around their kids - to about the same degree as I am weirded out by people who drink more than a beer with dinner around their kids.

A friend of mine asked if he could smoke up around our kids (both 2 years old). When I told him no, he took out a fake cigarette that held pot and asked if he could just "smoke a cigarette". I just...don't get it.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thought this before even clicking TFA.

At least if I'm a bad man I'm not alone.

 A product of our public school system, undoubtedly.

Bureaucrats run our public schools.  This is the norm.

And... we now have a kid who's learned to distrust authority.

Overall, while it sucks for him now, this is probably a good thing for him in the long run.

he wanted to smoke in the same room as the kids?  That's messed up, IMO.  However, to smoke earlier, before taking your kids to the playground....well, it helps, trust me.

That kid has multiple life lessons happening at once.  The first of them is that he will wish he was still able to talk to his father.   The next is that government overreacts over stupid nonsense, and finally that you cannot trust people in positions of authority.

You should file a complaint that he is creating a hostile working environment. That just isn't right.

Sounds like your friend might be a jackass. No sane person would smoke anything, pot, tobacco, whatever, around 2 year olds. Smoke is bad mmmkay, shouldn't be exposing little kids to it.

Also sounds like you might have some issues if you're weirded out by people drinking more than a beer around kids. Obviously pounding shots or chugging out of a handle in front of kids probably not OK. Couple of beers or glasses of wine? Why would that be weird?

/that kid is getting coal for Christmas...and dad's an idiot for leaving his stash where kid could get it

Drinking a beer is somehow OK, but smoking a little weed isn't?  Talk about poor reasoning skills.  And at 2 years old they don't know what's going on nor will they remember it.  But they're your kids.  I assume he didn't just light up anyway?

Back in my day, the parents tried to hid their drug use from us fifth graders.  If we found their drugs, we usually smoked them ourselves.

To be fair, he probably didn't even know. The fact that his mother was there at school to help him report it leads me to believe he's just a pawn being used in their divorce. The fact that his mom screwed him in the process probably isn't much of her concern. Hell she'll probably find a way to twist it back on the dad.

THX 1138: That'll teach him for telling an adult he trusts!


Can't highlight that more.

When I was a kid, you were told that if you couldn't talk to your parents (for whatever reason) to seek out a teacher or counselor, minister or priest, or a police officer.

Those are now people that we have taught children to fear and distrust.   Sometimes understandably.

"Today is a different day in age. I can't imagine that happening. It obviously seems young, but I mean, but they're so exposed to everything nowadays. I mean who knows what the child's homelife is like and what kind of exposure they're getting besides drugs," Lewis added.

Wat?! I can't stand people who talk like they've just had a freaking lobotomy. Seems it's the norm now. Listening to the C-Span callers on election night has proven to me that society truly is doomed.

And that quote was from a freaking TEACHER. At least he's an EX teacher but still... somehow he managed to get through college and was paid to communicate ideas to children.

Eh, I've done way worse shiat to my parents and they haven't disowned me yet.  Is the father going to be angry with the kid?  Yes.  Is it going to result in lifetime estrangement?  No, or at least probably not willingly on the father's end.

Very possible. My parents smoked pot and I knew what it was, I also knew damn well I should keep my hands off it even at a much younger age then 5th grade.

Force him to stop smoking it? Why would a child want that of his father? From what I hear on FARK, marijuana is absolutely harmless and has never hurt anyone!

Beer doesn't magically vaporize and get into a kid's system. Pot smoke does.

Don't freaking smoke ANYTHING with your kids in the room. They can't understand the consequences of smoke nor can they give informed consent. Attitudes like yours demeans the legitimate pro legalization movements.

Because his mother has convinced him that his father should quit, but really she is just trying to screw him in the divorce. RTFA.

Back in realityland, a couple of hits of cannabis from a ceramic 'cigarette' doesn't produce enough smoke to affect anyone inside a car, let alone a normal sized room or especially outside.  Cannabis users don't smoke anything close to the same amount that tobacco users do.  It's not the same, but thanks for playing.

But you're right, I'm sure people on the fence about 'the movement' probably aren't ready to hear the truth, and it probably could hinder efforts.  How could something some innocuous make you feel that good and have virtually no downside if used in moderation?  Their morality based television has brainwashed them into believing it must have a secret darkness.

This used to happen a lot during the "just say no" hysteria of the 80s.  I remember these kids being lauded as heroes by the news media, complete with televised interviews with the kids and the spooked parents.  It kind of fed on itself as kids started turning in their parents left and right.

My local police station has a box out front to drop anything illegal. It looks just like the library dropboxes where you put books after hours.
The library is in the same building, I wonder how often people confuse the two.

/I think the dropbox is legit, but it would be just my luck that I'd get pulled over and the car would be searched on my way to use it.
