How can I get my 18 (almost 19) year old son to stop using pot? He uses it while he is away at college and I feel that it has started to affect his performance in Architecture School and daily life. He did not do well his last semester.In addition to this,it is illegal where he is living and he could get in trouble with the law as well as losing his scholarship. He is probably influenced by his roommates who I have not been able to meet yet. He claims it helps him to fall asleep. Since he has been home for the summer he is also using it I think secretly at home, but he claims that he is not. It is difficult to trust him.

He's 18 and in most states, he's an adult. So, there's really nothing you can do to get him to stop smoking pot. What you can do, if you don't want him smoking in your house is to tell him if you catch him you'll kick him out. Then, follow through.
