21 yr old son won't grow up

In the last 3 years since high school ended he has spiraled into smoking pot, not continuing his education, working the bare minimum maybe 14- 29 hrs a week. Sleeps all day wakes us up at night playing video games. Throws temper tantrums any time he is given direction or instructions, punching walls, drinking. Won't shower, won't keep himself groomed. Has the thought that he doesn't need to work because he wants to be a comedian but is making no attempts to get on stage. I am his only parent and I put myself back through school to try to show him right from wrong. I love my son very much but he has left me no choices. I had to kick him out! He said he wants to go to Colorado and the ticked are $110 and u told him I would help him get there but he thinks he just can jump on a plane with no job, no place to live.. He is delusional. He has been staying with his grandma my mom in a SR. community which has a time limit and now he will not talk to urghh!

He's making his choices, let him live with them.

He's an adult. He's got to learn how to be one.

You've already kicked him out. Let him learn to live on his own. There is nothing you can do. If he is with his grandma and she can put up with him, that's her choice.
