This might be a long post so bear with me. I live in Arizona and it's now legal to grow medicinal marijuana. You are allowed 12 plants to grow if you don't live near a dispensary. Well, my in-laws decided that they should go to their friend that is a doctor and get their MM cards. Mind you, I do believe that it can only be given to people with debilitating conditions. But my mother and father in law have nothing wrong with them. They are both perfectly capable working individuals that just want a free ride to smoking weed all day. Previously when my husband was 6, his parents were hauled off for 6 years because of this growing op.
Well around March 2012 I stopped taking my children down there to visit their grandparents because I don't like the idea of them around it, inhaling the air and the chemicals in the house to make the plant potent. So I get a harassing text message on Easter telling me that I'm all these awful things because I don't want my children to get the wrong impression about weed. Sure I've smoked it in high school. But I think that is missing the point.
I don't want to be associated with it, I grew up in a drug addicted family and so did my husband. And I just don't want that for my littles.
So I guess what I am asking is, Am I doing the right thing by not taking my kids to see their grandparents because of the 12 plants they have growing in their house?
