My boyfriend’s ‘business’ brings scary people to our house

Dear Amy: My live-in boyfriend is a low-level pot dealer.

Honestly, this has always bothered me, but he says that now that pot is legal in our state, he is no longer breaking the law, but running a business.

I basically hate the fact that he does this. It brings losers into our home at odd hours, and I have at times felt unsafe.

I guess I’m writing to you because I’d like a gut check. I value your point of view and could use another perspective.

So – what do you think?


Dear Tired: In my state (where consuming pot is now legal), individuals can grow a small number of plants for their own use, but it is still illegal to possess more than three ounces and to sell it outside of a legitimate and licensed business.

You should do some research into the web of laws and regulations where you live in order to understand (better than your boyfriend does) the extent to which he is breaking the law.

More important, in my mind, is the atmosphere this creates in your home, and how vulnerable you are to the stream of strangers entering the home.

And so I’ll ask you two questions you should ask yourself:

Is this how you want to live?

Is this the partner you want and deserve?

He has made choices to serve his own needs – and you have the right and responsibility to make choices for your own benefit.

Dear Amy: I have three children, ages 38, 41, and 52. The two youngest have children under the age of 10.

Every year I give the children thousands of dollars. I give my oldest three times as much because she has been ill for several years, even though she refuses to see a traditional doctor.

None of my children acknowledge my gifts. The middle child will thank me if I ask if the money has shown up in the children’s accounts.

This is complicated by a car accident in which my eldest, while she was high on drugs, killed a woman and her baby.
