Are you struggling to manage boundaries with your teenager about marijuana use?

Are you struggling to manage boundaries with your teenage about marijuana use? Where do you draw the line about what’s okay and what’s not, and how dangerous is marijuana use to his or her development?

“What are your thoughts on marijuana? Long story – short, my wife and I gave in to our son and allowed him to smoke weed as long as he got it from us and only smoked in the backyard at home. That way we can control what he is using. Turns out, he didn’t follow the rules and was smoking more and secretly meeting friends to smoke with late at night while we were asleep. I don’t think we can really stop him and I’d rather him smoke than drink or do other drugs. But I am worried about how much he is smoking and how it may be affecting him. He is about to be 17. Any advice?”
