Saved from "Juevy" for the moment.
My daughter, her boyfriend, and his son all went to juvenile court yesterday. The judge said since the kid is living with his dad now, and not the mom, he would not send the boy to juvenile hall this time. He also said this is the last shot. If he busts another drug test he is history.
Now I wonder what they are going to do. His dad is trying to find him a job. Good luck with that. Who hires a 14 year old for anything, even in good times. Maybe they can get him a job washing dishes at the restaurant where they work, I don't know.
My son is going to try to help by taking the boy to movies, to the park, etc. I told him to make sure the little peckerwood turns out his pockets before he gets in the car. My understanding is that up there, if you are in a car with someone who has dope, you get arrested too. I really feel for my daughter. This isn't even her child and she has to go through all this because somebody else was a sorry parent. She says he's really a good kid though so maybe, against all odds, they can salvage him.
It doesn't do any good to bewail the fact that all this trouble comes from doing something that is legal or ignored in a lot of states, and which is hardly the worst vice a person can have. Besides, if you can't stop smoking pot then you're like a person who can't stop drinking, eventually it will ruin you if you don't do something about it.
