Mom Arrested: Caught Smoking Dope With Her Kids
"A 39-year-old woman was arrested last week on suspicion of smoking marijuana with her two teenage children. Douglas County sheriff`s deputies said the woman was detained after they responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle. Deputies said the woman told them that she was teaching her son to drive, but they smelled marijuana emanating from the vehicle."

Respected and successful individuals who smoke marijuana responsibly never make the news, it always a clueless stoner who grabs the attention of the press.
The recreational use of marijuana doesn`t pose a threat to the smoker or to society, but it`s the height of irresponsibility to smoke weed with your children. There is nothing wrong with enjoying a shot of Jack Daniels after a hard day`s work, but only an idiot would pass around a bottle of whisky to his young kids.
I think smoking marijuana is safe and therapeutic, but I don`t counsel anyone to partake of the magical herb because it`s against the law. But if you are going to take a chance and smoke a joint do it in the privacy of your home and not in your car.
The lady claims she was teaching her son how to drive, can you imagine a mother teaching her son to drive while under the influence of marijuana?
Son, chill out. Yeah, you took out a couple of parking meters, but it`s no big deal. Now gimme back my joint!
