Not knowing your dealer is a stupid idea Alcoholic beverages were contaminated during the prohibition. Oh, and it`s called a vaporizer.

Anyone else notice the fact that it said "He got the hard to find video game Guitar Hero 3"
Last week, i strolled into a store and bought it twice(Bought it at first on monday, got a busted x-plorer so returned it and got another one in a different store.)

@Legacy, obviously you don`t no anything on marijuana Iv been token for years and i NEVER once got my $hit laced... plus i only buy it from friends who grow their own. And yes, smoking is bad, all smoke is bad for your lungs, but it won`t kill you.

Well, yes, pure marijuana can be very good for your health, but since when can you buy pure weed on the streets? That`s not medication-grade grass that you`re puffing--that`s medication grade grass with rat poison, laced with God knows what, grown and handled in some junkie`s basement. Not to mention, you`re still inhaling a burning substance wrapped in paper and flooding your lungs with Carbon Dioxide. While we`re at it, sure, it`s good for degenerative brain disorders, but what happens when you have no brain disorder? Same effect as taking chemotherapy drugs without having cancer. Can`t possibly be good for you.

Are you serious?? Nobody puts that s h i t on weed. You are definately not educated. You have no clue what you are talking about. Pure Marijuana? you must be smokin poo laced with PCP or somethin. Next time try talking out of your mouth instead of your a$$.

"I bet the father did that because his son was smoking his pot."

Wow I thought most pot smoking parents were forgiving about that. You know raiding the stashes for the first time, trying it out. Wow he must of had some good stuff then and he is plain arse hole of the day. He probably was making a point by saying "you screw with my purple haze and I will sell your Christmas for... you got that right biotch more Purp and lots of fudge bars.

If he`s a schoolteacher with these kinda brains, he prob told his son about what marijuana does. It isn`t really much worse then a cigerette but still. smoking is still pretty stupid

It is dramatically less harmful then cigarrettes.

@TheDude - Actually, it`s very possible. Haven`t you read about the war on drugs? The DEA can and will raid your home if they suspect if have drug activity going on. For a minor to be smoking pot openly in a yard, all it takes is a report from a neighbor.

^At RCB LOL, no federal agent is going to come busting down your door because a 15 year old has some pot. Were i live, cops don`t really care about it, enforcing a law that mostly everyone has broken is a waste of our time and money.

Even though he is 15 I still think that the punishment was a little harsh, because he was probably just experimenting with it, and as long as it dosn`t become a habbit, then you shouldn`t have that bad of a punishment.

That`s not going to discourage him. Smoking Cannabis is not a bad thing either. He should have told his son the real facts about Marijuana, and then told him it was for adult use only. It`s not that he sold his game, it`s the fact that his son didn`t learn anything except don`t do what I don`t want you to or I`ll sell your things. "

Let`s set aside all moral issues and look at the legal issues - this kid was doing something that could`ve caused his FATHER`S door to be knocked down by federal agents. His Father would have suffered the consequences. I think what he did to his son was correct. How do you guys know the Father didn`t have a discussion with his kid? Just because it isn`t in the article, doesn`t mean it didn`t happen. Either way, I sure hope he did. Whenever you tell a teenager not to do something (even if you provide a CONVINCING argument), you can almost guarantee that they`ll do it.

Now for my views on the morals of this. I`m a Libertarian - I believe people should be able to smoke pot if they want to. Yes, it can ruin your lungs and cause long-term damage, but it`s your responsibility to decide whether getting high is worth it - not the government. Obviously, this doesn`t apply to this kid. He lives in his Father`s house and has to live by his rules.

The dads a fag. I know its not great for someone young to smoke pot, but that doesn`t mean drat up christmas, one of the few things to look forward to every year. I would have grounded him or something. And even if it is his household, it doesn`t mean its right for him to do that. The kid doesn`t have a choice to live there.

Yes the father had everyright, and if you are going to smoke weed or any otherr thing, you should be older and responsible (might not like that, but true) and alcohol is just as bad, so if you condem pot, I sure hope you dont drink.. im refering to the bitch who said it was immoral..umm its a natural plant...so God created it.....bitch

Doesn`t matter if you agree with smoking weed or not, the father had every right to do what he did. His house, his rules. There`s a consequence for every action.

It`s the kids that aren`t discipled that end up as the next Darwin Award recipient on IAB, or just plain losers at life. Sure, smoke pot in the backyard now, and end up living in your mother`s basement later.

It doesn`t matter if you view weed as moral or not, it`s STILL illegal.

If MY kid were sitting there, participating in illegal activities while I was out busting my balls trying to find him the perfect Christmas gift, I would`ve done more than sell the freaking video game.

The naughty son, however, will not go without a present on Christmas.

"I am still considering getting him a game for his Nintendo. Maybe something like Barbie as the Island Princess or Dancing with the Stars ... I know he will just love them," the father said, tongue-in-cheek.

Except, Vampyrekween, that`s how things work when you`re a kid. Your parents make the rules - if you break them they`ll do something you don`t like. And if one of the rules is don`t do drugs, then hey, it`s not like he didn`t know.

Living at home = my way or the motorway.

As for educating him, yes he probably should`ve - but the kid`s 14. He *should* know what drugs can do (if you watch tv, you get it shoved down your throat constantly). So he could`ve done some research on his own (maybe that`s why he decided to smoke, who knows?) Either way though - he broke the household rules.
