So. I'm pretty aggravated at the moment... but I'm going to try to keep my cool long enough to write this blog and hope that maybe... just maybe I will cool down after venting.

My brother is an idiot. I decided to go spend the day with my parents while Justin worked 2nd shift today. Dylan got home around lunch time... from spending the night at a friend's grandmother's house (who is living in a nursing home)... and they weren't supposed to be there at all. They drank. Smoked pot. Etc etc. My brother is 18. Not of legal drinking age. And umm... last time I checked, marijuana is illegal. Does he get fussed at? No. Does he get in trouble? No. Does he get a lecture? Ofcourse not. No big deal. No consequences.

This is what gets me. When Dylan started smoking cigars I asked my parents... will he stop at cigars? They said yes. Then he started smoking cigarettes... I asked my parents, will he stop at cigarettes. They said sure! Then he started drinking. I asked my parents... will he stop at alcohol? Ofcourse! Now he's smoking pot. I ask my parents... will he stop at pot? Their answer... I don't know. Can you detect a pattern?

My mom is addicted to the show "Intervention" where a person who is addicted to drugs or alcohol is filmed and then at the end of the show their family participates in an intervention. EVERY single one of these people started out like my brother... but is anyone but me trying to stop him? No. At some point, either something horrible is going to happen to him or my mother is going to realize she's enabling him and won't be able to do a thing about it. So what now. What do I do? I'm lost. My baby brother is going to end up hurting himself and my family and there's nothing I can do.
