speaking of weed

Do you look down on moms who smoke weed after their children are asleep?

I don't smoke and I never really gave it any thought.  Is it any different than havinga  nightcap?  I do have a nightcap every night.

Re: speaking of weed

  • Not at all.  To me, it's no different from a nightcap. 

    I also don't look down on dads who smoke weed after the kids are asleep.

  • No. As long as they are still funtional in an emergency situation. Meaning they don't get sh!tfaced or stoned off their ass.

    Night caps are fine.

  • Young babies, yes.  Especially if they're not sleeping though the night.  If a mom is high and there is no one else in the house to care for the baby should LO wake up then I think it's irresponsible.  

    But older children?  Nah.   

    Drinking and smoking can't  really be compared.  You can drink one beer and not feel the alcohol.  You can take one hit and be high.

  • Weed is illegal (unless you have a medical card for it in California) nightcaps are not so think there is a big difference, but to each their own. Just smoke it outside. But if you are drinking to get drunk or smoking to get high on a nightly basis I'd look down on you.

  • It's not my cup of tea. I feel like if the parents do these behaviors then their kids will pick up on them most of the time. If they do weed when their kids are toddlers they will most likely be doing it when their kids are teens IMO. I give people the side eye when they come into my work smelling of it. It grosses me out.

  • I sort-of do.  Its not the action itself, but it is the whole "what if you get caught thing."  For example, if I drink after Snuggle goes to bed, it is not illegal.  I don't really risk much.  But, by smoking weed or doing something else illegal I risk getting arrested, losing my job, losing Snuggle.  I think it is pretty irresponsible of me to think that none of that would happen to me, blah, blah, blah.  Not worth it and i don't see why someone else would think it is.

    I actually know a couple who smoke every night after their kids go to bed.  They just keep saying nothing is going to happen, etc. which I think is fairly arrogant of them.

    That being said, I think pot should be legal anyway, and then I wouldn't care.

  • This is a tough one. I think weed is great and think it should be legalized. And, I don't have a problem with a parent smoking every now and again.

    However, it is illegal so getting high every night with a kid in your house seems sort of shady. But, really, if it's not affecting your parenting skills then I guess I shouldn't really look down on people who do it.

    This and only the bold. I think doing anything illegal when you have kids or around your kids is no bueno. Also when you sneak into the bathroom with 2+ other people your kids are not dumb even at a young age and probably know what's going on. Speaking from experience. Sad sad shiit.

    ETA: and my only issue is the fact that it is illegal. if it wasn't I still wouldn't do it, but I don't think it would be as bad. While people do have nightcaps, most people who smoke weed don't take a hit and leave it at that. They usually do it to get hella high so in that case I don't think it's okay. And I don't think drinking to get shiitfaced after your kids go to sleep is okay either. You never know when your baby might wake up.

    Lightweight.

    IDK, I guess I equal being high to being drunk.  You can drink and not get drunk immediately unless you're taking a bottle to the head.   But in my experience, there really is no in-between with weed.  It's either you're high or you're not.

  • I wish my mom would have smoked and sometimes still do. She gets too stressed. She needs to relax, man.

    More like "cheap date".

    I guess it depends on the person and their experience with weed.  I've seen varying degrees of highness when people have smoked.  I think it also depends on what kind of weed you're smoking.  If you're smoking brick weed, then you're not nearly as high as if you were smoking some homegrown shizz from BC. 

    Not that I would know anything about that, Bump Police.

    this. I also agree with a pp who said not with young babies who need you almost 24/7.

    I hear ya. I rarely drink and never smoke for this reason. I am too scared of losing anything or not being functional, but I know that I am paraniod about this stuff in general. I don't look down on others who do it though... I don't know why... it just doesn't bother me.

  • To each his own.

    I know some smokers, and I can't imagine them not being able to respond to an emergency should one arise. I'll even put it out that the stoner would  be probably in better shape to deal with an emergency than someone who has had a few cocktails. At least the stoner could drive. ;)

    With that being said, (in most cases) smoking is still illegal so I guess you take your chances.

  • I have never really thought about it. I don't smoke or have friends that do so it doesn't really ever come up.

    I don't care what people do in their own home except for the fact that it is illegal and if cops ever found out and came to the house to arrest the parents, what happens to the kids? I think it's just too risky especially when they are so young.

    I'm not trying to downplay the fact that it is indeed illegal, at all, but I don't think a whole lot of police man power is spent on trying to bust Mom & Dad smoking a joint in their home. Ya know?

  • I do look down on anyone who smokes after their kids go down for the night. The way I see it, not only is it illegal, but it's also selfish. Do you really need to smoke and risk not being clearheaded if an emergency were to arise? That being said, I feel the same way about alcohol - but that could be because I am an extreme lightweight so I don't touch it unless DD is being watched for the night.

  • Not really.  H used to be a 24/7 pot smoker.  I have never cared for it, don't like what it does to me.  Then H stopped before LO was born.  He probably smokes once a month now.

    Oh I agree with you. The normal me doesn't care at all. The tiny extremely responsible part of me would worry about the what if though.

  • Are we talking inside the house or outside the house (like on a porch/patio/deck/whatever)?

    ETA: inside, yes I look down on them.  Outside, no, as long as they can function/care for their child(ren).

    I'm not sure that was specifically stated, but I can't imagine anyone would be down with smoking anything inside the home. When I used in the "in their home" reference, I didn't mean it literally.

    but this is why they're dangerous for noobs. experienced users tend to know how much is too much and this goes for weed and alcohol. the kid who drinks one shot with no effect will often down another 3 before he feels anything.

    we just watched "should i smoke dope?", which was a bbc program about weed. every single person compared it to alcohol, from users to dealers to researchers.

    what would you compare smoking to?
