Anyone else out there with teenagers who can't seem to quit the stuff? My son has been arrested twice and is only 14. He is highly intelligent and has a touch of depression...possibly even some ADD (as yet to be determined), so his doctor thinks he may be using pot as an escape and self medicating. I know he's a teenager and it's the nature of the beast that they just do dumb things, but he seems as tired of all the drama as I am. We have gone through one probation and are about to go to court again. We have grounded from everything but breathing, and he has completely changed friends twice and this time I think he might have 1 or 2 who don't use, but the old crowd always seems to creep in somehow. We think he's doing better but we can never be sure until something else happens. I'm pretty sure I smelled it in his bathroom when I got home this evening but I'm not sure. He knows if he has a dirty drug test his drug counselor has to report it to the judge. I have talked myself blue to him about it and am out of ideas. Advice please!
