Maybe I was also paranoid from all of the second-hand smoke. I was never given an option as a child as to whether I wanted to take this drug. My parents and their friends smoked it around me often.
I see many parents these days claim they don’t smoke around their children but they’ll often smoke outside with their children clinging to their knees or they’ll hug their children tight at night with that disgusting smell clinging to their clothes. Don’t you wonder what message it will send to children? I worry that legalisation will continue to perpetuate the myth that it’s a harmless drug. I worry that children will once again be voiceless in the face of stoned parenting. If marijuana is legalised, it will be even more inescapable than it is now. I already have to deal with smoking at concerts – stoners feel they have the right to do this, then they laugh at the idea they’re getting others high. I remember in high school a group of boys laughing hysterically at me as I sobbed in a car as it was hot-boxed.
They thought it was hilarious that I hated marijuana and didn’t smoke it. When I came home that night, woozy, ill and still sobbing, my mother was in the kitchen with a joint in her mouth. Her mental health had been destroyed by decades of heavy smoking. She didn’t even notice I’d come in even when I started talking to her. I felt so alone and it led to my first suicide attempt. As an adult I’ve eaten birthday cake with weed in it. They’re now in their 30s and they’ve never stopped. Another sibling has managed to get clean at 30 after a decade and a half of severe substance abuse. Both started their drug taking with my parents’ stash. Yet still, despite these experiences, I would never publicly share this as it’s seen as outrageous these days not to support the legalisation of marijuana. For what it’s worth, I do support the medicinal use of marijuana. And I think questions do need to be asked and answered about how marijuana convictions are used as a tool to disenfranchise and oppress young brown people in this country. It feels like a desperately lonely position to hold among my age and peer group; almost all the adults I know whose parents smoked a lot are now heavy users themselves. This is understandable – it’s often the same with the children of alcoholics. Seeing my parents smoke made me never want to touch it, but the loneliness that I felt in the face of their drug-induced neglect turned me to alcohol. I want them to think of those scars that so many of us hold and wonder whether legalisation is the right thing. And maybe also a plea: if you rely on marijuana to parent, ask yourself what effect that has on your children. Follow the Spinoff Parents on Facebook and Twitter.
