Bowls? Those are the guys that lay around all weekend drinking beer and watching TV and being all comatose. Take no more than one hit...then get out and do something, like take a hike or climb a mountain. If your gonna do it, do it right mannnnnn!

This aint the 70's old man! Kid's in my neck of the woods break open a cigar scrape the tabacco out, and fill it back up with weed. This is called a blunt, and its the only way to smoke

Read him the riot act! Tell him exactly what you feel, know, and believe to be true about drug use. Let him know that you're saying all of it because you love him and are concerned about him.

Put your foot down and keep it down on this one because too many families are plagued by drug addicts who do nothing but burden the family ad naseum.

He needs to see the side of you that isn't willing to bend on this issue. Drugs have taken over so many families and it usually begins with this kind of light use and goes from there. I'd also tell my parents and put the word out because he's going to tell you what you want to hear but think that he's got you snowed. Even if he's mad at you for a while, don't fall for it. YOU are angry with him for throwing his life away on drugs and he needs to know it.

Thats fine if they have jobs and can afford it. Most don't and can't. So they tend to do bad things to pay for their habit. Like stealing. When they get to that point...if they had a brain cell...it would be lonely.

if he knows that you used to smoke then he wont listen to you if you tell him not to. if he doesnt know then i guess you could try to lecture him on the negative effects but he probably has to just outgrow it.

Your ages and relationship plays a big part in how you handle talking to him about his usage, as does how you found out about it. You know your brother best, and can probably gauge how he would react much better than any of us would be able to. I think it's great that your eyes are open and that you care.... I wish more siblings were like you.
