to think that 8.30 am is too early to skin up

it seems to be getting more and more common round us (dads doing it while walking their children to school, people doing it before opening up their shops for day)

I am just really surprised that it is done so much in public

YADNBU shock Mildly impressed that anyone could manage to skin up whilst doing the school run though

drwitch Mon 23-Sep-13 11:02:41

think the rolling happens before they leave the house but yes can't imagine this either. - sorting out breakfast, homework, P.E kit, lunches and then having time to roll a Camberwell carrot is pretty amazing

KellyElly Mon 23-Sep-13 11:06:38

God, they'd need to go back to bed after smoking at that time of the morning!

pizzachickenhotforyou Mon 23-Sep-13 11:09:25

I used to do this. But I was a teenager on the way to a dull job. Looking after your children and doing this - too early and quite pathetic.

As is weed?! Parents are actually smoking weed whilst walking their children to school? Don't the teachers report them to SS?

It's 'wake and bake', and I'm under the impression most sort it out the night before. You've got to be organised with your weed worship.

What putting cream on their skin, never too late for that!

pigletmania Mon 23-Sep-13 12:06:33

I out mine in the morning after I've had a showe

morethanpotatoprints Mon 23-Sep-13 12:10:11

Surely it depends on how much they're putting in.
Also, I used to roll a large cig before taking dc to school, there was no gear in it, but looking at it you wouldn't have known because it looked identical to a joint.
Are you smelling it each time?

drwitch Mon 23-Sep-13 12:14:46

I always smell it before I see it, first few times I thought it was simply bonfire (herbal baccy) but tis definitely weed

givemeaboost Mon 23-Sep-13 12:18:24

fgs there are worse things happening in the world hardbolied! ss wouldn't do anything about that!

peachactiviaminge Mon 23-Sep-13 12:19:59

They do this at our school and stand outside the gates smoking it. I suspect some of these people never stop smoking though. Not in Nottingham are you? hmm

hardboiledpossum Mon 23-Sep-13 14:02:49

I am sure there are worse things happening, that doesn't make taking drugs infront of your children OK. I am not a social worker but i do work for children's services, if i were aware that any of the parents that we engage with were taking drugs in front of their children i certainly would be reporting it.

allforoneandoneforall Mon 23-Sep-13 16:23:26

What's the big deal here? They are not doing any harm! Doubt they are offering the kids blowbacks on-route so take their example and chillax!

WorraLiberty England Mon 23-Sep-13 16:28:59

I read the thread title and thought you were asking MN if you should have a joint grin

I think 'It's joint O'clock somewhere', would have been the reply...if the wine threads are anything to go by.

CotherMuckingFunt Mon 23-Sep-13 16:32:11

There are parents at our school who smoke weed in their cars with the kids in there. I'm torn between wanting to bollock them and asking for a pull.

hardboiledpossum Mon 23-Sep-13 16:33:45

The relaxed attitude to this is shocking.

hardboiledpossum Mon 23-Sep-13 16:38:13

cother we used to call that hot boxing, you would get high off the fumes without actually having to smoke any. So these primary aged children are going in to school half baked and no one thinks it's much of an issue.

Magicjellyflood Mon 23-Sep-13 16:38:44

Wow I'm disgusted that some people think this is ok!shock
I'm glad this doesn't happen at my dc school as I would be informing ss and the police myself!hmm

ButterMyArse Mon 23-Sep-13 16:39:58

Pretty grim to be doing this first thing with kids in tow. I used to have the odd morning joint in my youth but even at my most dissolute never smoked before work. The thought of being stoned around children is horrifying to me, for many reasons.

persimmon Mon 23-Sep-13 16:40:09

I agree; these are illegal drugs we're talking about - and what an appalling example to set the kids.

Mojavewonderer Mon 23-Sep-13 16:45:39

I used to be able to smell it outside my daughters infant school, luckily I've not smelt it outside her new school but I just couldn't get over how someone thinks its ok to smoke drugs around their own children let alone a whole school of kids. Takes all sorts I suppose.

passedgo Mon 23-Sep-13 16:45:46

You should report this. It's illegal and neglectful of the child. What is the parent like in other ways?

Dahlen Mon 23-Sep-13 16:47:02

How thoroughly depressing! sad

I'm anti drugs, but even if I weren't, I'd still find this shocking. Back in the day when I used to know a lot more people who used drugs of various classifications, those who led productive lives would not have been caught dead smoking a joint on the school run. That has, and always will be, the habit of a loser IMO.

Smoking it openly in public creates a situation in which public consumption of cannabis is viewed as normal. It's a smell and sight that becomes familiar to children growing up. So much so that when they are offered their first toke, aged 12, they think that everyone is doing it so where's the harm. Not good for any neighbourhood.
