I can't claim to know you or your brother or your family, but it seems to me that there is something going on here other than smoking too much pot. That, or you are taking pot WAY too seriously. The thing with pot is, it can be psychologically addictive, but it's not physically addictive. Long-term 'potheads' are, in my experience, usually very insecure people who smoke to fill a void in their lives or run away from something. If this is the case, you should find out what the real problem is and address it.

However, there are also short-term potheads. I have several friends who are in this category (never was one myself, though I came kind of close for a year during college). Short term potheads just really like smoking pot, do it way too much for six months or maybe a year, then realize 'hey, I'm just sitting around all day, this sucks,' get into a different life situation, and stop smoking. I have several friends who were like this during college, we're all about 23/24 now, and they all hardly smoke pot anymore. They did not go through withdrawal, they are all college graduates with solid prospects and their wits about them. In other words, they're fine. As drugs go, hate to break it to you, pot ain't that bad.

I do have one friend whose parents found out and freaked out a little. They get along, but I think, long-term, it was bad for their relationship. NOT a good thing, because he was gonna smoke pot anyway, and he was gonna turn out fine anyway. It's just not worth it. Perhaps you've already gone this route, but...

Am I saying you should smoke up with him? Absolutely not, you are the older brother and should set an example. I would apologize for narcing on him, but let him know that you were just upset and concerned. Tell him that you understand it's his choice but don't encourage him. Keep an eye on him, lest he get involved in harder stuff, but don't go overboard.

The fact is that potheads, and most drug addicts, are people who have pre-existing emotional and psychological issues. If your brother is one of these people, watch out. If he's not, you don't have to condone it, but it seems that you're overreacting.

I remember when my daughter was in High School and I accidentally discovered her stash.

The next couple of weeks were really stressful.

I was constantly afraid she would catch me pinching out of it.

Any feedback or suggestions would help. I'm very much upset to have discovered this habit of his.
First of all you ask him where he's scored his bud and then second tell him to roll up a big fattie

Just kidding.

Hey don't worry, being a pot head is fine so long as he stays of the hard stuff. Tell him to go visit www.everyonedoesit.com some very good legal highs on there.
