Journalist Mike Sager’s parents let him smoke pot, and he let his teenage son smoke pot:
Like my own parents, when it came to my son’s marijuana use — speaking now ten years later, well beyond the statute of limitations — I made what most parents would probably consider an unusual call.
Quite unlike my folks, Bev and Marv, I had more than 30 years of personal experience smoking marijuana. And there is no disputing the fact that I have thus far led a successful life and career. At the end of the day, that’s been the most important thing. Stoned or not, nobody can ever say I didn’t conduct myself with care.
