Boyfriend Uses Marijuana... - June 12th 2009, 10:42 AM

Soo as the title says, my boyfriend uses marijuana.. Last week, he came all high and I didn't know what to do with him. He could barely walk straight! He did admit that he smoked weed, that's how I knew.. I'm very worried about him. I know he's a heavy drinker and a smoker but I never expected this from him... He's trying to quit smoking and he's drinking less now but I don't know what to do about him smoking weed. As I said, I'm very worried about his health... Is smoking weed a very serious case? I'm sorry for my ignorance , I've never been in a situation like this, I do hope you guys understand. If this is serious, how can I make him stop? What can I do to help him stop?

Please help...
Thanks in advance :]

A lot of people smoke weed regularly. But swat is right, it can lead to the use of more serious drugs. And i think if you don't like him showing up to meet you stoned, you should let him know that it bothers you a bit.

My boyfriend also smokes weed. We became friends first though, because we shared that common interest. It didnt bother me when we were just friends, but now that we're dating it bothers me more because my love for him is a little different.
I know, many, many weed smokers. As i myself am one, and through all my experience, you cant make him stop, unless he himself really wants to. My boyfriends been to juvie for weed three or four times already, and is on probation for it, and he still refuses to stop. Now he doesnt smoke it directly, i always shotgun for him. Even though it doesnt make a dif. really, it makes him feel better.
As long as your boyfriend is safe while doing it, and has people around him who care for him and he trust, its not really a big deal. It can be a gateway drug, but for the most part, its "Safe"
The real question is does smoking weed affect his life? Does he pick it over you? If he is in school, are his grades affected? Does he hurt anyone when he does it? If not then i say let him smoke. If you really dont like him doing it, talk to him and maybe help him regulate how much he does over a amount of time, and when he does it

Smoking weed causes no known seriously harmful side effects. the only thing that is dangerous about it is that it could be laced with something stronger [ex. pcp, meth, etc] and that could lead you to an addiction or worse.
As it stands, no one has ever died for a marijuana overdose, most unlike alcohol, meth, and prescription drugs.

Thank you so much guys At least I do know some stuffs about marijuana now. You guys said that it can lead to something stronger so I think I'll talk to him about it and the fact that I don't like it when he comes and meets me all high.

Thanks so much, again <3

When your high, your life is like a slide-show basically until the high goes away. So, your gapping out, things can get out of hand and you don't remember much of what you said or did.

If I was in your shoes, I'd tell him "Me or pot".

I smoke it like a chimney, and really, there's nothing extremely bad about it. However, if you don't like him showin' up all stoned, tell him!! I'm sure he'll understand.

hahah. No weed is nothing serious. The heavy drinking is what will cause permanent damage if he doesn't chill out.
