I would probally let my children smoke weed at 16 (if they wanted to). But i would probally have to set up guidelines ie, you can only smoke weed on the weekend. Would you let your children smoke weed at 16 (if they wanted to)?

yeah, but if they fucked school over it then id take it away from them and force them 2 quit. But hopefully she would have more sense than to follow in her fathers footsteps.

It really depends on how mature my kids are at that age, If they are indeed a mature 16 year old, and already making good drades whilst staying out of trouble then yes, but only if they can keep up to the standards I give them. In my eyes I think Id rather have my kids smoking pot than out binge drinking. Plus if I give them a safe place to smoke they probably wont get caught with it.

I always said that when I am an adult I am going to let my child party drink smoke, that kinda stuff as long as they dont fail any classes.

I've always said pretty much the same thing, but I don't know if I would change my mind when the time comes.

I know I will. If I'm anything like my parents, I will hope my children are raised to tell me when they're bout to go smoke a fat ass joint. I like to take into consideration what other people are thinking. For my parents, their big thing with the kids in the family is just be honest. They know they can't change our minds about drugs rather than living through it, so they tell us to at the very least, let them know when and where we're going.

I still don't because what they think I'm doing on my own time is a hell of a lot worse than what I actually do, most of the time.

As long as he's sharing, my son can start toking whenever he feels he's ready.

ROFL. Gore with the witty reply. awesome.

I would let my kids do it too, hey, why the fuck not eh?
If its doing good for me, why should i pummel my kids into those parental scare tactics? And by that time, in Canada, (if the Liberals get back into power) marijuana use will legally introducee decriminilzation (which it is practically right now, unofficially) But ya. I would love to smoke with my kids.

This XMAS i rolled a nice spliff for my mom, dad and a few of my aunts and uncles for their New years eve party. My dad sold it before in his 20s and my mom was there and is that kind of straight stoner type. Id love to pass it around with them one day.
Cheers,

i think a kid is not a kid anymore at 16 and can take decision by itself.
if my kid abuses from it..... NOW there will be a problem
but if he knows how to controls it, god, he could even share with me, and bring a lot of friend with weed, y'know ?

He could even pay his rent with weed.... wow.

S'long as my kids keep it cool and smoke the same as me why the hell not. Lot safer than going out drinking, most of the times when im doing something fucking stupid and dangerous it's 'cos of alcohol. But i'd let my kids toke so they have somewhere safe to do it away from the police and i could keep a eye on them.

But Whitelie said it right, we'll all probably change our minds when the time comes.
Try some wrong

I was actually talking about this with a buddy of mine the other day after toking up. I'd have to say that I agree with most people here in that I'd let my son/daughter smoke weed but I wouldn't let my son/daughter become a pothead. As for the age? Like someone else said in the thread, to me it depends on maturity, not a precise age.
I saw on TV today, this man lost his son, his son died...
So he had him cremated, took his ashes, and then made it into a Diamond ring...
Now he watches his son shine every day.
I just thought about that, while I sit here ashing in this ashtray...
