    All we can hope as parents is that if our children do try any drug they will be responsible and realise its a faze soon realising it is wrong and get past it.

    Drugs are a worry and it is a big reason we made the choice not to bring our children up in the city. We live in the country, kids don't do drugs here except the indigenous who petrol sniff and drink heavily and that occurs in their communities rather than in town. Kids are less likely to be exposed to drugs where we are and everyone knows everyone so you would soon hear if your kids are in any trouble. We just don't have kids wandering the streets at night, we have very little crime. Every time we go to the city all we hear about and see is drugs and crime. So glad we don't live amongst it.[/QUOTE]

    I grew up in a small farming town/community with less then 100 people living in the town and there was a big drug problem amongst the teenagers/young adults there and in surrounding towns. It was very well hidden with a lot more places to hide the crops. Dont get me wrong I understand what you are saying and yes there are more serious drugs and more of it in the cities but please dont be disalusioned (sp) into thinking that just because you are in a small country town where everyone knows everyone it isnt happening there.
    I myself never got into the drugs yes I did smoke for a couple of years and I enjoy a drink but my parents brought me up to know it was alright to say no to peer pressure. Lots of kids in country towns get bored because there is little to do and start to experiment and it is usually an adult someones mum/dad older brother/sister ect that give it to the younger ones to try

    Thanks VP. We've lived here for many years and my dh was a police officer here to so we know what is or isn't happening here so please don't think I'm naive people.

    I also grew up in a small country town, lived there all my schooling life and was never subjected to drugs at primary or high school either.

    Ecstasy. I watched a documentary where they gave people drugs and then scanned them to see the effects as part of a medical trial. They gave some to a nun, and she looked so happy. No anger and all that stuff you see on tv about ice etc.

    If I had to choose a drug for me it would be cocaine. I've tried a lot of drugs and that's the one I've had the most fun with and not felt like death the next day. If I had to choose one for my kids to experiment with it would be ecstasy or cocaine. While I had fun with dope, I've read and heard too many personal horror stories of addiction and ongoing problems. If my kids touched ice, heroin, ketamine, speed or anything like that, I'd be disappointed and upset. I'd feel the same if they took up smoking or became dependent on alcohol.

    I have a fairly liberal view about experimenting with drugs, based on my experiences and those of my friends. But anything more than short term experimentation would cause me a huge amount of concern.

    As someone who was very deep into the world of drugs In a larger country town I'm s scared for DD and DSS'S.WE live in brisbane now so it's probably work down here too. I started dabbling in pot and Ex when I was 12 and ended up in a relationship with a meth cook from 13 to 15. I was in deep an helped with the production even. Im completely out of it now though thanks to DF and very good friends. When t kid are older
    Than plan to tell the *parts* of my past with them and show photos of myself.
    Explaining to them how it made me feel, how hard it was to get out of that work and other parts. I'm so scared of it but I'm doing my best (with DF) to ensure I'm a better parent than mine were. All in all I'd prefer nothing. I know you said , had to choose but nothing.

    I think that's really commendable that you were able to turn things around so well. That must have taken a lot of courage and discipline.

    I would take valium and a bottle of wine and get the best damn sleep I could.... That to me, is just about the best "high" i could possible think of right now.

    Wow - those horrible unfortunate reactions are more likely linked to the persons physical and mental health issues at the time.... or by consuming the wrong specie....which depending on the type will cause brain damage, or kidney failure and/or death. So sorry to hear that happened to them

    As for those who have said they know people who are messed up from weed, yes thats possible but i know alot of people who are not and have smoked their whole lives. They have families, hold down successful job and are very sociable. I guess it comes down to the individual (like a PP said).

    I wonder though if they were to compare long term effects of alcohol and weed, what would come out on top?? (as in, what would be the less bad)
    Seriously? What's in hydroponic weed :/ errrrr! So many chemicals your getting stoned off that not the weed itself

    In all honesty? 18 months ago I would have chosen methamphetamines in a heart beat, I always felt like I was missing out when I slept. Now days though, I would have a vodka cruise and a couple of Valium. I need the sleep an to stop stressing!
