I have been smoking mary jane at least once a night for over a year now. I do it responsibly, in safe areas where I am comfortable, and only with people I truely trust (ironically these people are my closest friends). It has all been a secret to my family however. My dad is a 12 year retired cop, it's been difficult hiding 28 grams of pot in my room at times. My mom works at the church they both attend, both are strong christans and against it because it's illegal.........and nothing else I think. My question is, if I do it responsibly, been able to do it for a year without their knowledge, and enjoy it as a personal hobby (better than drinking IMO), are there ways I could talk to my parents about them being ok with me smoking it? I'm 18 in 2 months though, so I could just be leading myself into a boot in the ass, out of the door for good. But I would really like to educate them and ask for their suppot in my hobby........I just am sick of hiding it, but I like it too much to quit. It doesn't get in the way of anything in my life, at ALL, and things like reading are much more fun. How could I approach my parents?
