My Teen Son and Marijuana?

Question by FGGSFGFSGH: My Teen son and Marijuana?
Recently, I discovered my 15 year old son has been using marijuana for the past 8 months. At first I was filled with anger and dissapointment, but he has persistently explained to me that it helps him relax and sleep as he has been trouble with anxiety, mild depression and insomnia. Last year, he had all B’s and C’s and was not using marijuana. Ever since he has begun, he has maintained a 3.6 GPA and seems overall happier and nicer to be around. He isn’t dependent on it, either. Still, I realize that it is illegal and some say it is a ‘gateway drug’ although he says his friends and himself only use marijuana and don’t want to get involved in anything more serious. Part of me says he can use it, with moderation, and part of me says No! It is a drug! I figure if it is helping him, the pros may outweigh the cons however. I would like some input from others to help me come to an informed decision for the best.
