Just because I say something negative in relation to your country doesn't mean I'm bashing or hating on your country. Get over it.
As long as she isnt becoming an addict who then starts stealing to buy more drugs and cant be bothered to get motivated or get a job then all is fine. all things are okay in moderation... Although I haven't really done much in terms of drugs myself (I tried it and didnt like it lol) I had all my house m8s and university do tonnes or stuff and it didnt bother me what so ever. .
My advice is be there for her, but dont smother her, let her do her thing, if things get too serious then step in and do something otherwise just be passive about it. Most kids around that age experiment and its okay for them to do so as long as they take the proper precautions and do minimally. She'll probably grow out of it sooner or later, alot of people I know that settle down drop the whole thing

Drinking and smoking makes you sociallize more, I've seen shy, boring, introvert people turn into fun, happy extroverts after a few beers/ a joint. I've seen shy guys who where to scared of girls, kissing the girl of their dreams after they had a bit of booz for courage.
Why does everything needs to be so serious? Why aren't you allowed to make mistakes? You say you learn by watching other people's mistakes,
I say you are wrong. You only got a few tips. Those people you see acting like drunk fucks, happen to have a good time.
You can't fully learn to understand something if you never tried it or fucked it up a bit.
You can't say drugs are bad unless you have atleast tried some. I don't say you have to, but keep your closeminded views for yourself, if you don't know something you shouldn't comment about it.
I agree, drugs like heroine are bad and your stupid if you start with that poisen. But I know a lot of people who've taken their fair share of soft-drugs. And most of them are fine.(you have those 1/20 fuckups but they wouldn't find a job even if they'd never taken drugs in their entire life)
Gateway drug argument is bullshit. As you said it yourself, it all is dependent on the person. Now what would that issue be, ADDICTION. It seem more like you have an Addiction Issue, more than a Drug Issue.
Let's address the reason for Addiction and we can talk. No one wants to touch that ground though. Rather just lock everything in a sealed room, then deal with personal issues that lead to drug use anyways.
The problem is never the drugs, it's the reason we take them.
Living Stright Edge life is the new high, drugs and drink are so 10 years ago :P
Kids will be kids. As long as you know whats going on then you can step in and interfere if things get harder or out of control. Pushing to hard might make that a lot harder to notice since she will hide it away from you. But it wouldn't be a horrible idea to have a big brother talk with her in private about what you think about whats going on and to make sure she understands exactly what she is getting into and where certain lines need to be drawn. Make it clear your willing to help if things get out of control. Let her know that you will give her a ride or pick her up if she isn't in a good situation or to messed up to drive herself. It will allow you to keep tabs on the situation and interfere outright if you feel things are going beyond one of those lines you discussed earlier during that big brother talk.
I'm not trying to demonise cannabis. My response was in reply to you arguing against someone suggesting it was harmful. You can't honestly believe it has never caused harm?
You moved in with your girlfriend at age 17, yet you call your 17 year old sister a baby? If it's just weed or cigarettes, whatever. Most of the kids in my high school experimented with those and grew out of it.
Just keep her away from the harder stuff.

And I say you're wrong, people acting like drunk *fucks* may be having fun during intoxication(High drunk whatever you get the point) are free inhibition. I don't think he's closeminded, I think he just wants to stay healthy and well minded or lack of a better term.
You already convinced yourself, you don't need any convincing from me. Why would you unless you're secretly disappointed with yourself.What exactly are you arguing then??? Give me something to argue and I promise I will... You cannot find something about weed that can't be argued... find me a reason for why I should be like you and believe that marijuana should remain illegal... please.
Also, cannabis makes you a hell of a lot more cautious (or paranoid, if you prefer). The typical weed smoker will look both ways... 3 times before crossing a street, lol. Aimlessly walking into the street without looking is something a drunk person would definitely do, however.
