Just 'cause someone doesn't smoke pot doesn't mean they're not natural or liberal.
Don't let the 'Christian' in my siggie fool you, I've been to the fair
and I actively chose
, of my own free will, another way of life that didn't depend on having to use a controlled, illegal-in-most-areas, mind-altering substance (no matter it's "natural" status) to feel better/mellow/relaxed/inspired etc. I mean, there is
a reason people smoke pot, after all. If they don't use it to attain a feeling or way of being they can't evoke naturally, what is the point of using it at all?
That having been said, I wouldn't call the cops on some one (I've got beliefs about worldly authority that may surprise you as well), but I would
tell my children (provided I felt my child could be discreet) if pot were a factor in why I didn't allow them to spend intimate or unsupervised time with the family in question.
Incidentally, I am learning to embrace the assumption that just because I'm a devout Christian I musn't know a thing about the pot counter-culture. It promotes arrogance (and thus, sloppiness) on the end of the smoker who thinks they're so cleverly hiding their smoking habit and gives me way more insight and information about the people my children are exposed (or not) to on an intimate, unsupervised level -- but we can meet at the park as long as they're not high jk
I think one can be a 'good person' and smoke pot. They're just going be a good person who doesn't spend unsupervised time with my children, and that's fine. It also has to do with practicing in my life
the values we hold in our family. I can't very well teach my child that I am not okay with pot in my intimate relationships/environment, then drop them off at Aunt Susie-who-tokes-up-every-night's house and use the 'it wasn't my business' line when they find out and ask. Kids are MUCH smarter than people give them credit for.
That just doesn't make good parenting sense, imo.
