I did exactly what I advised another parent not to do on this board, and I read my son's texts. And read a text where he reached out to someone asking if he was able to get "Lucy" or "Rcs". From what i googled, that is some sort of LSD or mushrooms. He has told me recently that the only things he would do were weed and mushrooms as they are from the earth. He is fascinated by the idea of expanding his mind and seeing things differently. I was glad he told me as we talked and I of course told him how bad an idea I thought it was and how dangerous it could be, etc. We discussed how dangerous it is to "trust" a drug dealer and put something you buy from them into your body. Fast forward a few months and he is actively trying to get some. Thankfully in this case, the kid replied that he was busted and got put in jail. Of course, this information has me spinning in desperation as to what I can do to stop the madness. He is only 17 and as his mom, shouldn't I DO something? He had stopped smoking weed for a while, was eating healthy, got a job (which he still has), and overall trying very hard to better himself. Yesterday he even went out and got a haircut. And wow, he looks so good I could cry. He has slipped back into smoking just in the past few days but overall still making strides forward.
