So my son is 14 yrs old. He tells me kids smoke dope on his bus. Its only a matter of time before he will want to try it. I smoked a lot when I was younger and feel it had a very severe effect on my life. If I could say one bad thing about weed....is that it really does de-motivate you. I was extremely lucky to meet my wife and have three great kids, I'm talking winning the lottery lucky. I really had no drive or ambition and am now stuck in a dead end job I don't really like. At 50yrs old, there's no going back or starting over. Its a decent job, good benefits and I'll get a pension. But, I'm pretty smart and feel I could have done a lot more with my life if I hadn't have spent my teens and 20's stoned. So...do I tell my son this? He is so much like me its scary. Addictive personality for sure. Just thought I would run it by you good folks as I have had excellent advice here before. Cheers!!
