How do I convince my brother to stop smoking weed? Should I get Police involved?
He just smoked weed all day, doesn't work and spends most of the time in his room.

I am thinking about calling the Police so they come and take his weed.

Maybe if the Police arrested him that will shock his system and make him stop smoking weed.

Thoughts?

Don't.

That will only cause him legal and financial problems and make him hate you for the rest of his life. He is an adult, let him use his free will.

Anyone who did that deserves a swift kick in the nuts.

It's harder to get a job with a criminal record too.

You can't make someone quit drugs. Ever. THEY have to want to quit themselves.

Trust me, I've been there before. You can't force it.

Mind your own fucking business. Your brother could wind up shot if he even flinched wrong during the situation..over some damn weed. How would you feel then?

You have to be trolling.
I'd rather be real and rejected than fake and accepted.

What my brother does in MY house is also my business.

I could just kick him out onto the streets instead of getting the Police to sort him out but I am not that mean.

You can't force someone to do something, thinking you can will only get you pushed out of their life permanently.

Besides weed didn't make him that way ... he made himself that way. Plenty of active successful people indulge regularly.

What do you care if he smokes? Are you equating his laziness to the weed? I know plenty of stoners who bust their asses every day. If you don't like the fact that he is useless, stop supporting him financially. He will change his ways when he is hungry. The police are not going to solve anything.

I didn't realize you were across the pond. My apologies. However, you still should mind your own business as it pertains to his choices of what he puts in his own body.

Pretty low down thing for a brother to do if you ask me.

Blaming the weed is you just making an excuse for his behavior.

Does he pay rent? utilities? place in your name?

He lives in my house for free. He is on benefits, gets £70-something a week and spends it all on weed.

Re: How do I convince my brother to stop smoking weed? Should I get Police involved?
Wow!!! First of all be glad that he is not doing real drugs. The only way to convince your brother to stop smoking weed, is that if and when he goes to apply for a job, most places piss test and he will end up failing if he does not quit. Dont let him borrow money, dont buy him food, dont buy him anything. Its like cigarette smokers who are always asking someone for a smoke, buy your own damn smoke. Secondly, why should he stop smoking weed, does he have a reason to. Ask yourself how is it directly affecting you. If your just mad cause thats what he does with his money, then you have no real argument. If hes begging for money then its a problem. Last, never involve the police for you family affairs, they will ruin your life as well. you will end up being a torn family and will never get any respect from him no matter how much you disagree with his habits. Be happy hes not doing cocaine, heroin, crack, meth, crank, or some drug that people steal from theyre family members for just for a hit. Weed is not addicting,cigarettes is harder to quit then weed.

Re: How do I convince my brother to stop smoking weed? Should I get Police involved?
OP just stahp would ya.

How about spending some time with your brother and find out what's really going on inside of his head?

Apparently he wants to isolate himself and stay stoned for some reason. Calling the police and turning him in is not gonna solve this problem, but instead complicate things. That move would affect you and your family.

Trust me, it could be a lot worse than smoking pot. If he was laying in there with dirty needles then you might have a real problem. Right now it sounds like he's depressed, and he's hiding from the world and trying to make things feel better. It's an escape. Maybe from you? Your parents? School? Why don't you get to know your brother and help lift them up. Think about it, it may come down to the point that one day you and he are all you have.
