My mon caught me with weed - October 26th 2011, 06:34 PM

The other day I came home from school and my mom said she found weed in my room. She gave me the Riot Act and demanded to know where I got it from and that I was giving it up. I tried to tell her that she smoked weed back in the day and now smokes cigarrettes, and that weed is actually safer than tobacco, but she wouldn't listen. Now I'm grounded for two months. It's so unfair. How can I get my mom to ease up? Thanks!

You get her to "Ease up" by quitting pot b/c you see there's more value in maintaining a good, trusting relationship with your mother than the fun of smoking pot.

PM me with the link of the post you'd like me to respond to.

She caught you with illegal drugs, whether you think it should be legal or not is another issue entirely. Brining up her own history isn't really going to help you because this situation is about you, not about her. Maybe she feels like her smoking pot was a mistake and she doesn't want you to get into it or she wants you to stop. It can lead to other drugs even though there isn't conclusive evidence that it will for everyone. Either way it is addictive, and even if it's safer than cigarettes that doesn't mean it's not harmful She's trying to protect you here. I can't judge whether 2 months is fair or not, but that's her decision. Since I don't know your age I'll add that even if you're 18 and can do what you want, you're still living in her house and she doesn't want illegal drugs in her home. If you really have a problem with it, wait until she calms down and talk to her about why you think it's unfair for reasons other than what she's done in the past.

Simply put, just because your mom did it doesn't give you a reason to.

PM me if you need to. But the easiest way to get her to back off is to gain her trust, tell her why you smoked it, and why you had it. The truth too, then stop smoking it. Gaining her trust will not only help your relationship but it will also allow her to.... Back off a little.

How old are you? Makes a big difference -- I didn't tell my mom I smoked/ate weed until after I left for college and now she really doesn't care as long as I keep it out of the house. Cigarettes though -- they'd kill me still.
