    Well, kids shouldn't be smoking period.

    Though this really is more of a parenting debate thing.

    This'll work for a while but I doubt he'll never smoke another joint in high school again.

    He's a teenager...teens sometimes smoke.

    This mom comes off out of touch like Romney with her stance on weed. Probably a Republican as well. I wonder if RED EYE will mention this this upcoming week?

    I can see this punishment backfiring on the mother in a big way.

    Exactly. This kid is now officially the coolest kid in his school. Also the new source of where to get weed from....I'm surprised people weren't honking at the kid and yelling "right on!"

    yeah, and this definitely isn't going to turn into one of those "you'll thank me someday" type things, he's going hold some resentment over this, for loooong time lol.

    This isn't abuse, you silly goose. Where there are drugs and alcohol, there are also problems. That goes double or triple for the underage crowd. She sent her son the correct message.

    Nothing says cool like your mom forcing you to wear a sign around your neck.

    A sign about how you smoke pot.

    If it was a sign about how she found you playing with dollies or wetting the bed, ok. A thirteen year old smoking pot is not going to destroy his social life. At all.

    Youre talking about his peers who wear marijuana leaf shirts to school. He's gonna be just fine. This mom is a moron.

    Next will she make him wear a sign saying "I'm a pimp?"

    Nope, she cares. Nothing will lead a kid into bad decisions quite like the drugs & alcohol crowd. Hopefully, more parents follow her example.

    The example of out of touch with reality?

    Seriously, if you want to embarrass your kid, don't make him wear a sign that says to his peers that he got busted and is still cool. That kid GLADLY wears the weed sign.

    Don't you get it? If you want to make the kid wear a sign, and be shamed, make it something actually bad to his peer group...like wetting the bed, or some other embarrassing thing.

    This sign is the equivalent of this 13 year old kid "baring the shame" of telling everyone he got laid at a frat party to his friends.

    Parents may mean well, but when theyre stupid about it, it hurts everyone.

    You may have a point but hopefully some children will think he's an idiot.

    I just realized I didn't address this silly assumption. "drugs and alcohol crowd."

    What happened to you? There is a reason people blame drugs and alcohol on people's behavior.

    Alcohol is legal, but you have a problem with that as well. Drugs? How many prescriptions do you take? Do you smoke cigarettes or put them in your "crowd" too?

    Just to clarify, Im not against disciplining kids and teaching them, but be smart about it. this is more glorifying the behavior, and parents should not follow the stupid people who get their parenting ideas from youtube videos.

    There are far worse things that I worry about the youth today than them trying pot.

    All kids are idiots, but the ones this exercise is directed at, will think it's cool. Because theyre all idiots. Tell me I'm wrong.

    It doesn't matter if some children think he's an idiot if he's now a magnet for the pot-head subculture.

    People don't realize that there is a strong cultural component underlying marijuana usage. They form communities, and at that age, part of the problem (and, more importantly, the mutual attraction) is being open enough to find people with whom you can smoke and from whom you can get the green.

    When you essentially advertise to these children that yours not only managed to get a hold of pot, but also was not afraid to try it, what do you realistically think is going to happen? They will in all likelihood gravitate towards him, both with curiosity and admiration. It's possible that this may then lead to social acceptance among the very crowd that his mother would prefer that he avoid!

    Also, don't you think that this may trigger bitterness and rebellion on the part of this young man? Teens aren't known for responding to these types of punishments very well, especially if even a small subset of their peers show that they not only condone, but support this behavior. His mother may have just made the single worst decision possible given the situation.

    None of this is inevitable, but it's a risk which should have been considered by the boy's mother. Whether or not some (or even a majority) of kids think he's an idiot (which, by the way, also has the potential to drive him further into the subculture by way of derision) is irrelevant.
