    [QUOTE=PlumberKhan;4503627]lolz! Just like my dad :P

    I remember when he found my pipe. He came into my room:
    [/QUOTE]
    lol.

    My dad wasn't too hip either. One day I was de-seeding some herb at the kitchen table and my dad comes in and says, "what're you doing?" So I told him what I was doing etc, and proceeded to pull out a packet of rolling papers. Well, he flips. He's like "what the hell are those for?"

    I told him I was going to roll some joints. He started laughing and tells me that back in the mid seventies he bought an auction lot. (my dad did so often, he was a hustler and mover from back in the old days) anyways, at some of these auctions, you were literally just bidding on a lot#. You didn't know what you we're going to get. So my dad ends up with a lot of rolling papers. He thinks to himself, damn, I'm screwed. Nobody rolls their own cigarettes anymore.

    So he goes and buys a bunch of rolling tobacco to go with the papers and heads up to the Public Market. He said he couldn't figure it out until then (fifteen, twenty years later) because he got up to the market and the papers went like crazy and nobody bought any of his tobacco.

    After the story, he proceeded to roll me a perfect one-handed joint (with arthritic hands). I had him roll up the rest of my bag and we went for a long drive out along the lake. (He could no longer drive because of cataracts) From that day on, when he'd see me rolling joints in the kitchen, he'd ask, "We going for a ride?"

    "yep, dad. We're goin' for a ride." :high:

    He wouldn't smoke. but he enjoyed getting out and driving around. We'd listen to Floyd and I'd get baked. Good times.

    Exactly. I only need 1/4 of a j and I'm good for several hours - anything else after that is just wasteful.

    I'm like a marijuana camel.

    [QUOTE=Bonhomme Richard;4503620]Did you ever have to deal with this issue with your kids?[/QUOTE]

    Yup, and I told and retold them a story very early on.

    Guy (actually, one of my best friends) I played ice hockey when I was younger was the best hockey player I have ever played with in my life--and I played against 2 of the 3 Hanson Brothers from Slap Shot and a bunch of guys that played D1--this guy won the Nationals as a 14 year-old with LIAC, a superstar, blistering fast, strong, nasty, mean, rocket shot, incredible skater, toughest fighter I ever met. Should have been a D1 player, possibly a pro.

    He started smoking weed when he was about 15, got TOTALLY burnt out and by the time he was senior in HS his game was totally gone. A total waste of a talent.

    And I told my kids, that's not what typically happens, but it could, you could waste away a real talent with anything abusive--but pot was the drug de jeur I was railing against. I also told them I was no prude, people are free to make their own choices--told them my room at Cuse freshman year was THE party room and I'd seen more weed in that year alone then they'd see in their lifetime :D However, I didn't allow bongs, someone spilled bong water on my rug and I forbade them thereafter. Hell, an Indian guy used to bring black hash and ludes into my room all the time for the party--told my kids all this too. I always figured you need to be honest with them, takes some of the mystery out of it. They know my two roommates from college and know they were total stoners, so they know I've been around it a LOT.

    I didn't want to come off as lecturing them--as if it was so evil I'd never even seen it--no, I told them it was a big part of HS and college, but they had to be careful and think about their choices.

    Repeated the story every year or so. Dial forward, when my wife was undergoing chemo, my sister-in-law tried to get her to smoke some pot when her nausea got really bad, but she was so paranoid that the kids would see it she couldn't do it. So I showed the kids the weed and the papers and explained what was going on--that it wasn't a "high" thing, and they got it--but my wife still couldn't smoke it because she didn't want to set a bad example, and she made sure they all knew that. The anti-nauseau medicine she took really didn't do the trick, but she struggled through it.

    Long and short, my oldest two have never smoked, but my third one--my second daughter-- finally came to me one day and admitted that she tried it a few times and she felt guilty and wasn't going to smoke again. Completely unsolicited. My older two were disapointed in here, but were understanding.

    It's the last one I'm concentrating on now--he's 17 and is a good hockey player and a great lax player--and everytime I mention pot, he says he always thinks about the story of my hockey friend burn-out and that I shouldn't worry. Having

    But him and his buddies are always snagging beers and vodka, so I have to watch out for THAT :O

    i demand to know what happened to that post :mad:[/QUOTE]

    You're a good father, you can tell. I'm 27 and was always a good kid and always had good, silly, goofy types of friends. We all played sports and video games growing up since childhood days, just a regular/good childhood. Didn't always pay the most attention in school and when I reached high school, 15-16 years of age, I started to smoke the trees. My mom found out the night I got arrested (pulled over), I was 16 about to turn 17. Got pulled over (leaving the basketball park) on the same street/road that I lived on. When my mom seen me inside of the back of the cop car? She was heart broken and in return? I was heartbroken that I let my mom down. She was everything to me. She wasn't hard on me (cops let me leave with her and gave me a ticket to go to court), but she did express her concern because my older brother started smoking trees when he was around my age (at the time) and ended up getting into more serious drugs until he had a life changing experience which changed him for the good/better.

    Long story short, she expressed her concern to me and let me know that the same friends that I'm smoking weed with now, will become the same friends who try to bring my life down in life (without knowing any better) due to more serious drugs. I took her advice to heart, and have never touched anything other than weed, newports (which I haven't smoked in over two years) and drink (I like to drink when I go out to a club, or maybe a sporting event here and there but that's the extent of it). Long story short? My mom was right. All my childhood friends got hooked on pain pills, and I've since seen them all become dope sick when they were without or trying to get off. Truly heart breaking situations. It wasn't just 1 or two friends either, it feels like this whole city in St.Petersburg has been destroyed by these pills. The same friends I had at the age of 12, 15, 17, 19 etc, etc who all loved sports? They don't even know who Mark Sanchez is. Just turned into walking zombies over the years (feels like over night).

    But yeah, I'm not only glad, but also thankful that I took her advice BUT... Marijuana has caused me problems. Misdemeanors. When I was 16, the night I got pulled over? Went to court, judge suspended my license for 6 months and probation for 6 months (Had to get a job and made me grow up). But, I was still immature and hard headed, at the age of 19 I got pulled over and the car was hazed (Learned to never smoke and drive) but once again, 6 months probation and this time? Two years license suspended... For 7 grams of marijuana at that. That's Florida for you. It's always a two year license suspension now. Thankfully those adjudications were all withheld and I was able to get my record expunged. To make it worse? As a teen growing up/early adult? I was very hard headed. Didn't understand that "no means no". When the judge would suspend my license? I would still drive back and forth to work and to see my gf etc, etc. First two driving on suspended? Just warnings. The 3rd time? License gone for 5 years. Thankfully? For whatever the reason was? I still have no idea why, but the state never picked up the case and the charges were dropped. I was sick for 2 months though (just thinking of not being able to drive for 5 years during my prime years), having to catch buses, depend on others or waste money on cabs. The day I found out I was getting my license back? Was the moment I grew up as a man and understood how much I appreciated my freedom to drive my own car.

    7 years later (I'm 27 now) and I've yet to get caught up in a situation where I drove with weed or on a suspended. I guess it's true, we as people do learn from mistakes. That if you want a successful life that is. Never again will I put myself in those situations. I've been married for a little over 3 years now and also have an amazing daughter, and when I got married? I made my wife a promise that I'd stop smoking trees because she seen how it's affected my life in a negative way. I took both my wife and mothers advice and haven't smoked a single joint/blunt since getting married, but not gonna lie... Sometimes I wanna blaze me one. Now, I happened to get lucky, and was able to get my driving on suspended and marijuana charges erased, but the moral of this story? Is that, not everyone is so lucky.

    Weed may not be a big deal, but it can ruin your life due to the law. I'll never drink and drive, but I could smoke 7 blunts of dro and drive normal 2 hours later. Give me 7 shots? And I can't even walk, think, talk or see straight. But yet, a DUI in Florida is 6 months first time. Marijuana? Now 2 years first time. Doesn't make sense to me but yeah, you handled that situation well shakin318, your son understand that you care about him in regards to drugs (weed) and just give him the best knowledge you can give to him, that way... He doesn't put himself in a situation such as I did myself, and lose his license for something such as marijuana. I catch myself getting worried when thinking about my daughter growing up, and the drugs that will be offered to her in life, it's a scary feeling. I won't keep her lame to the game, but I don't wanna ruin her innocence at an early age, she knows no wrong and wouldn't understand at the age of 3/4 what "drugs are". I don't wanna confuse her. When is the best age to talk to your daughter/son about drugs and the dangers of them? 10? 12? I wanna have her sharp as a razor blade, so the first time a "friend" offers her something? She'll have the education to not only walk away, but never speak to that fake friend again.

    I won't be happy when I someday find weed but what is just as disturbing is the relative ease your kids have with instant access to porn. No good filtering it at home if they can get it on their iphones.


    BTW this may have already been mentioned but it turns out the FL face eater was on the pot not bath salts. :eek:

    Weed may not be a big deal, but it can ruin your life due to the law. I'll never drink and drive, but I could smoke 7 blunts of dro and drive normal 2 hours later. Give me 7 shots? And I can't even walk, think, talk or see straight. But yet, a DUI in Florida is 6 months first time. Marijuana? Now 2 years first time. Doesn't make sense to me but yeah, you handled that situation well shakin318, your son understand that you care about him in regards to drugs (weed) and just give him the best knowledge you can give to him, that way... He doesn't put himself in a situation such as I did myself, and lose his license for something such as marijuana. I catch myself getting worried when thinking about my daughter growing up, and the drugs that will be offered to her in life, it's a scary feeling. I won't keep her lame to the game, but I don't wanna ruin her innocence at an early age, she knows no wrong and wouldn't understand at the age of 3/4 what "drugs are". I don't wanna confuse her. When is the best age to talk to your daughter/son about drugs and the dangers of them? 10? 12? I wanna have her sharp as a razor blade, so the first time a "friend" offers her something? She'll have the education to not only walk away, but never speak to that fake friend again.

    Seven blunts and a movie.

    Those lucky pillheads, never to fret over an ill-timed Sanchez mistake. Some people get everything in life in their life. :confused:

    [QUOTE=PatriotReign;4503768]I won't be happy when I someday find weed but what is just as disturbing is the relative ease your kids have with instant access to porn. No good filtering it at home if they can get it on their iphones.


    BTW this may have already been mentioned but it turns out the FL face eater was on the pot not bath salts. :eek:[/QUOTE]

    Pretty sure he was also on the insanity there, Reefer Madness. :rolleyes:

    [QUOTE=32green;4503763]You're a good father, you can tell. [B]I'm 27 [/B]and was always a good kid and always had good, silly, goofy types of friends. We all played sports and video games growing up since childhood days, just a regular/good childhood. Didn't always pay the most attention in school and when I reached high school, 15-16 years of age, I started to smoke the trees. My mom found out the night I got arrested (pulled over), I was 16 about to turn 17. Got pulled over (leaving the basketball park) on the same street/road that I lived on. When my mom seen me inside of the back of the cop car? She was heart broken and in return? I was heartbroken that I let my mom down. She was everything to me. She wasn't hard on me (cops let me leave with her and gave me a ticket to go to court), but she did express her concern because my older brother started smoking trees when he was around my age (at the time) and ended up getting into more serious drugs until he had a life changing experience which changed him for the good/better.

    Long story short, she expressed her concern to me and let me know that the same friends that I'm smoking weed with now, will become the same friends who try to bring my life down in life (without knowing any better) due to more serious drugs. I took her advice to heart, and have never touched anything other than weed, newports (which I haven't smoked in over two years) and drink (I like to drink when I go out to a club, or maybe a sporting event here and there but that's the extent of it). Long story short? My mom was right. All my childhood friends got hooked on pain pills, and I've since seen them all become dope sick when they were without or trying to get off. Truly heart breaking situations. It wasn't just 1 or two friends either, it feels like this whole city in St.Petersburg has been destroyed by these pills. The same friends I had at the age of 12, 15, 17, 19 etc, etc who all loved sports? They don't even know who Mark Sanchez is. Just turned into walking zombies over the years (feels like over night).

    But yeah, I'm not only glad, but also thankful that I took her advice BUT... Marijuana has caused me problems. Misdemeanors. When I was 16, the night I got pulled over? Went to court, judge suspended my license for 6 months and probation for 6 months (Had to get a job and made me grow up). But, I was still immature and hard headed, at the age of 19 I got pulled over and the car was hazed (Learned to never smoke and drive) but once again, 6 months probation and this time? Two years license suspended... For 7 grams of marijuana at that. That's Florida for you. It's always a two year license suspension now. Thankfully those adjudications were all withheld and I was able to get my record expunged. To make it worse? As a teen growing up/early adult? I was very hard headed. Didn't understand that "no means no". When the judge would suspend my license? I would still drive back and forth to work and to see my gf etc, etc. First two driving on suspended? Just warnings. The 3rd time? License gone for 5 years. Thankfully? For whatever the reason was? I still have no idea why, but the state never picked up the case and the charges were dropped. I was sick for 2 months though (just thinking of not being able to drive for 5 years during my prime years), having to catch buses, depend on others or waste money on cabs. The day I found out I was getting my license back? Was the moment I grew up as a man and understood how much I appreciated my freedom to drive my own car.

    7 years later (I'm 27 now) and I've yet to get caught up in a situation where I drove with weed or on a suspended. I guess it's true, we as people do learn from mistakes. That if you want a successful life that is. Never again will I put myself in those situations. I've been married for a little over 3 years now and also have an amazing daughter, and when I got married? I made my wife a promise that I'd stop smoking trees because she seen how it's affected my life in a negative way. I took both my wife and mothers advice and haven't smoked a single joint/blunt since getting married, but not gonna lie... Sometimes I wanna blaze me one. Now, I happened to get lucky, and was able to get my driving on suspended and marijuana charges erased, but the moral of this story? Is that, not everyone is so lucky.
