Hi, I am new to this forum but am looking for some insight into how to deal with a few problems I am having with my 18 year old son. My biggest concern is he is smoking marijuana on a daily basis to the point where I will come home from work and smell it in the house. The other day he was smoking before school. He knows I am totally against it, don't want his younger brother exposed to it, but still continues to smoke it. He will come home and I will smell it on him and his eyes will be so stoned but when I confront him he denies it. He spends most of his time in his room or going out with his friends. The only time he has friends over is if my husband or I aren't home. I don't really know any of his friends anymore. The only time he has time for me is to ask me for money which I deny him because I don't want to feed his habit. Every time I try to bring the subject up with my husband he gets very defensive. Says he just wants to get him through the school year and then kick him out of the house. He gets very angry at me and doesn't want to talk about it, so that's why I am using this forum. I also don't agree with my husband giving him $5 for lunch everyday or giving him cigarettes whenever he wants one. I try to encourage my son to get a job, but he would rather play playstation or hang with his friends while getting stoned. It just seems like he is zoning out of life and he also takes prescribed medications for anxiety and depression, so don't know what type of effect that has with pot. I don't know what I should do at this point. Have tried to send him to crisis by police, but he just signs himself out. Not sure if he would go to therapy. He's 18 so it makes it hard if he doesn't want to, he doesn't have to. But I cannot go through life with this happening in my house and seeing him go downhill.
