my 16 year old son has been smoking for over 1-2 years, I had no idea until about one month ago.
He came home smelling of weed. I purchased a drug kit at cvs however he told me that he had smoked only 4-5 times (lie #1) Fast forward to this past weekend. I went downstairs and was compelled to check a drawer under the tv stand. Low and behold 500 in cash all in 20's,,pipes and baggies. I was floored. My son who is a good student is selling. I took the iphone and started checking the text, well I think half the kids in my town smoke. One kid looking for weed for him and his father. I deleted all the texts re: weed and told several that the police will be informed not only on my son but others that are trying to buy. He told me he has made about 3,000 since 2/14..there was a text that his supplier was caught with 3 pounds and no longer in business. I told my son he will be randomly tested and that he is on thin ice. Well test #2 came out negative , however the computer downstairs was never deleted. My son had ordered synthetic urine on line @ 75.00 the guaranteed that he would always test clean. (lie #2), now myself and husband ground him till we figure out where to go from here. Tues I found out he left the house to give the rest of his weed away. He told me somebody was holding it for him, also there is wax the oils of the plant that they inhale. I have shed so many tears I don't know what to do anymore. I told him of all the danger including criminally . I told him it he chooses to continue when he is arrested he is not to call me. He will remain in jail and I have no intentions of going to court. I would welcome any suggestions at this point. I thought about going to the police but so many people told me not to..

Well I disagree that weed is not dangerous (apparently you don't know the effects of THC)Money is not a concern however I think he has to much time on his hands. Jobs are for and few between for teens and there is not public transportation to go to a job. He does work Saturdays as a bus boy however than can not supply him with any extra hours. Yes I know police won't arrest kids or parents for wanting to by pot however than can arrest the people who supply it and that's including my son. I plan on my kid going to college I don't welcome the idea of "smoke all the weed they want". I don't want to contribute to more brain cells being damaged. I would think that as a parent you would rather be part of the solution and not the problem. Thanks for the advise. I try instill the fact that if there are consequences for everything in life good, bad or indifferent.

Sorry but u r ignorant to drugs...that may sound harsh but ur son has already decided that weed is not dangerous and u can't do anything to change his mind. Weed isn't dangerous except that it's illegal in some places but other than that what is ur complaint? U said he is a good kid and doing well in school...why don't u say if money is ur concern I will help u find a job or something like that. And fyi the police will not arrest ppl for wanting to buy weed lol. Only person that's gonna get in trouble is ur son. Is that what u want?! I have 4 boys and weed is the least of my concern...If they are caring and good in school ect they can smoke all the weed they want to. Now if they start using other drugs like coke. Then we r going to the psychology dept asap because they have an issue we need to deal with. But weed is a silly thing to worry about. I don't think u would be crying about ur kid drinking ur beers all up would u?? I get u r worried about him selling weed tho. Like I said he clearly wants to be independent of u. So support that decision and show him he can be independent in other ways!! Just Try that. DO NOT FOCUS ON THE WEED or u will lose him. I promise u that. The war on drugs lost don't think u can win it either. He has other issues u can deal with as I stated...ie the independence issue
