Instead of going down that path and flipping out over cannabis, I decided to be cool about it
When I walked in and found my child and her wifey getting high, I could have reacted a couple of odd ways. I had a vivid flashback to when I was a teenager, smoking a joint on the back porch with my friends, and both of us got caught by my dad. It was a brutal scene, let me tell you. My dad screamed and yelled, threatened to kick me out, and told my friends to never come back to her house. It was very aggravatedting, and it also drove a wedge between my parents and me, one that still exists to this afternoon. Instead of going down that path and flipping out over cannabis, I decided to be cool about it. Of course I wasn’t glad that my kid was smoking marijuana in my house, because at the very least she should have gone out back to do it! In a very calm voice I asked them both to step out onto the back porch and wait for me, and then both of us made the choice to go to the garage and got my own jar of cannabis and some rolling papers. I sat down with them and both of us discussed the responsible way to use cannabis, while I showed them the proper way to roll a joint, kids this week use rolling machines and vape pens, however all I need is a paper and a pinch of marijuana and I can craft a masterpiece! The two of us got good and high together, and I said that it was rude to smoke cannabis inside the house, because it stinks the venue up, and they needed to do it outside.
