Then why do you suck so much at rolling one up for daddy, huh?

As a relatively new parent (I have an 8 month old and a 21 month old), I just have to say that taking care of a baby while stoned is farking terrifying.Part of it is just that stuff is way too high-powered these days and makes me paranoid to begin with.  And part of it is the guilt of, you know, being high when you've got important stuff to do, like making sure the baby doesn't stick a fork in the outlet. Ask me again when they're slightly older and I'm sure my opinion will have changed.

Now being drunk around the baby?  Fun as hell!

Beats alcohol.

On the one hand you kind of need it.  But on the other hand, nothing ruins a nice mellow buzz like a screaming, needy kid.

That's why I share.  Quiet's 'em down real good.

It's always funnier when you have to explain yourself.

Dammit, they're gonna make it uncool for us singles.
 
2017-04-18 10:49:28 AM  
Best way to keep kids from thinking something is cool, is for the parents to do it.
 
2017-04-18 10:49:50 AM  
If you have kids or a biatchy spouse this makes perfect sense.

Lots of parents drink alcohol.

We always had one of those box o' wine things in the fridge, and dad didn't like wine.

Purported? More like "definitively proven."

Delivery mechanism matters quite a bit. Modern edibles will...

Do some dabs and watch spongebob and play with legos, kids no kids whatever.
 
2017-04-18 11:11:34 AM  
So what? My kid has been on a super Mario brothers Wii kick lately. Is there something wrong about smoking a bit before that?  Nobody would bat an eye if I had a tumbler of scotch or three doing the same thing.
 
2017-04-18 11:12:38 AM  
I thought that over 70% of Americans were parents? If most Americans smoke weed (or hate riding a bicycle, or prefer Mr. Pibb to Dr. Pepper, etc), wouldn't it make sense for most parents to be the same?

Don't you malign Dora.  If you dating a MILF, that is 23 blissful minutes of uninterrupted peace that you can have while the kiddo is plopped down in front of the TV.

Of course, the kiddo was 18, but I had some business to take care of.

As a parent who doesn't, let me just say I completely understand those who do.

The last survey I saw put the number of people who've tried it around 44% with current users around 13%.

Really? In my admittedly limited experience with serious potheads, there have been more women than men, by about 2 to 1 at least. A bunch of the women in fact didn't drink at all, pot was the only drug they did... they just did it all the farking time.

I'm assuming you can point me to the double blind study that definitively proves this?

Those researchers evidently neglected to interview the ex-users I know who do everything they can to keep their kids away from the stuff.

For someone who continually criticizes others' reading comprehension, yours is sorely lacking quite often.
