Our 16 yr old son is smoking pot probably daily. He isn't doing well at school and barely ever home. We have tried counseling, talking to him and yelling at him, nothing has worked. The problems we face is that he doesn't see the problem and it's hard to help or change someone who doesn't want to. I've been thinking about becoming more strict with him, but I think this may push him further away. We don't have money for a place to send him to, and he wouldn't be willing to go anyways. His friends all are like this too. I have to admit as a teen I smoked pot also, but it wasn't a main focus for me. I still did well in school and respected my parents, worked part time. More like a casual social thing, although I'm not saying it was a good idea.
