Hey hipforums I'll start by introducing myself, currently an 18yo from the UK who does not have enough money to move out yet so am still living with my mum. I've been using cannabis about 3 years now to help me with moderate insomnia and for stress relieving/mind expanding properties. Just now my mum has found my kilner jar full of about half an oz and a block of hash I had stashed in my wardrobe, this was all the cannabis I had. I have in the past tried to show my mother countless videos, research and links to prove the therapeutic effects and how when done responsibly, this plant does not have any negative effect on your life like most people believe. I have also tried to reason and explain I do not poison myself with alcohol, go to the gym and am a productive and non-lethargic person. Despite all this she's still locked in her mind that ANYONE who uses cannabis can not have a happy or normal life and thanks to 'research' she reads, is also sure that it will give me schizophrenia (no history of mental illness), heart problems, liver failure and seizures. I am literally being treated like a heroin or crack addict, no matter what she has made it clear to never bring something like this into her house. I understand it is her house and ultimately her decision, but cannabis improves my quality of life significantly, without bringing any side effects. So I am asking on your guys opinions on what you would do in this situation or any advice you can give? Thanks for your time!
