I shouldn't blame the parents as much as the left wing skunks who run these psychiatric boards and try to classify every human quirk as a mental disorder.


The parents feel they are doing the right
thing to help their children. But sometimes
it's a good idea to read up on the drug and
get some knowledge about it.
Seems it's more like they experiment on
people, and then find out the drug wasn't
good to use and meanwhile we have the
consequence's.

Pot and alcohol from about age 16 for me. I would guess 50% of my High School Class were pretty regular drinkers and smokers. An ounce of Mexican in the late 1960s was $10 and a quart of beer about 50 cents to a dollar. Columbian was more like $20/ounce [and well worth it compared to the Mexican].
Cocaine showed up around 1970 or so at some high school parties, believe it or not.
The smartest kids [with rare exception] did not partake any of it. You never saw them at any parties, or any of the usual "hangouts". There was a ton of peer pressure to go astray but they were so well focused on their scholastic careers and obviously the financial rewards [and interesting, prestigious careers] that go along with it.
With rare exception I believe the people who simply "Don't have time for any of this junk" are the ones that lead the most active, happy, healthy, productive lives.
Once I got serious about my future [after leaving the military], then I didn't have any time [or money to waste] for marijuana and alcohol was also a low priority.
These substances can be a lot of fun on special occasions, but the novelty wears off when you use them daily.
First get your education and career, your house and car paid off, some money in the bank, your kids with a head start at home with their reading, writing & arithmetic, get yourself a meaningful hobby..........THEN see how much time is left over for any drug or alcohol habits.

Thanks for sharing your own experiences. When I was in high school in the mid 80's (and I went to a private school with some fairly bright schoolmates from well-off circumstances) the class valedictorian and his closest friends went to parties almost every friday night where they did weed and/or got drunk. I was kind of friends with him from grades 6 through 10 but I was more of a loner as I progressed through high school and because I didn't have a car or live near anyone I didn't get into the party scene very much. One of his friends who lived in a big house in Laurelhurst had connections to local drug dealers in the U-district and he supplied a lot of their dope at the time. I think he may have also tried mescaline or LSD a few times. All I know is that he really weirded out and became super mellow and suspended a lot of his critical thinking skills as a result of this, although he was extremely bright and went on to a PhD at one of the Ivy League schools. I smoked weed with them once in high school (I didn't even know what I was smoking, they just passed me a joint) and another time with a guy in college that I didn't really know well at all, and I got sick both times while not seeming to get any kind of high out of the drug. It makes me wonder if my body is just intolerant to marijuana or I have some weird chemical imbalance in my brain that over-rides the effects of it.

I've never done pot of any sort.

But with the arthritis issues I have Tylenol 3's are a mainstay.
-So only as prescribed by a doctor, here-
