I was shocked at a poll I read the other day of how many parents think that pot isn't that big of a deal. I guess I was raised differently than alot of people. Both of my parents taught my sister and I that anything that alters your state of mind, including alcohol, is not acceptable. My half brother started smoking pot at a very young age and is now into heroine and serving another long term in prison. I think it is a load of b.s. when people say that smoking pot does not affect them and that they find it a proper way to unwind while their children are in another room. I don't care if you are outside doing it, I think it is unecassary and plain stupid. What if something were to happen in the middle of the night and you are too buzzed to respond properly and as a result you loose a child? I could not live with myself! I am not saying I am the perfect mom, I have a margarita once in a blue moon, but not while my son is with me and I have NEVER even considered smoking pot. My life isn't all rainbows and unicorns either. My son is has low-functioning Autism and require round the clock care. I somehow find the time to be a housewife and cook and clean and all of that, and believe me, money is always a problem. But I never once have found myself wanting ILLEGAL drugs to fix my problems. Just wondering how other moms feel about the subject.
