to be honest i wouldnt care.

I couldnt exactly stop them, i would never give them the money for it. They can get their own by a job and if they wish to indulge in dealing then they keep all evidence OUTSIDE the house. If i find one set of baggies or anything id slap them so silly they ass will hit the roof.

Lol. I have to say at the age 15 maybe 14 if they start asking alot of questions about it, i'd let them smoke. But there'd be guidelines, and I wouldn't ask them if they wanted to blaze up though. Until I know that there will be rules, and they WILL follow it.

I started at 14 but I would never let them find that out. I would say 16 or 17 would be much better for them. Probably a lot more fun too because I had more stoned fun times at 16 than 14.
I personally recommend checking oneself for OCD at least once every 5 minutes.

I'd let them smoke it as long as i believed they were aware of the facts, and all that. so probarbly about ten, eleven.

Naw, that's way to young. At age ten or eleven they would just be braggin' to their friends that they smoke weed and what not. Isn't that like 4th or 5th grade? It would cause to much trouble at school. And knowing kids that age, they would probably get the parent responsible for them in a shitload of trouble with social services.
Sixteen is a pretty mature age, an age at which they'd be able to handle themselves and not get their parents in trouble for allowing them to smoke weed.

I wouldnt know what grade it is, i'm british. i guess your right, but i would still let them do it if i was fully confident that they would be secretive about it. i don't plan on having kids anyway.

According to studies (McGill and Stanford, Découverte - French CBC), the use of marijuana before the age of 18 is very hazardeous (up to + 10x more chances) of being considered as a potential schizophreniac since it alters the levels of serotonin in the brain. I regret starting hardcore at 15 and never reducing the intake until now when I finally 18 and it can do me no harm to me (whatsoever). Apparently it can strike at any age.

Kids, help other kids avoid adopting risky behaviors in life / Life is like a candy, the sooner and quicker you unwrap the shorter sweetness will last.

i wouldnt let my kids smoke until 18 when there all done with highschool. As long as there done with school and smoke responsibly i wouldnt have any problems. My parents are the same way, they found out i was smoking and just told me not to be stupid and dont let it interfere with work and also informed me they smoke as well lol.

sure... :roll: :wink:

Anyways, my point wasn't even related to intelligence. Only about the possible schizophrenia that could occur to those who started smoking when underaged.
