Early education..

One day walking home from sports, in Sorsapuisto, I smell a heavy scent of weed... Not unusual in the parks during the summer time...

Look around to see who is giving out that lovely sweet smell…

Then I find the source:

Two guys, one girl, smoking in the children’s playground, with their two little kids playing around…


Is…. sick…..


  1. It is not more sick than drinking when the children are present. If you can read finnish, you can find a comparison between weed and ethanol at

    PS. No, they shouldn't give either substance to their offsprings.

    This is a stupid comment above. The reason it is sick is not because it damages ones health (e.g. You don't watch porn movies in front of kids, no matter how healthy and educated those could be)

  3. Wow, I can't believe any parent would smoke weed in front of their kids in public. However, there are quite a few of these legal "alternative tobaccos" (for lack of better terms) that smell very similiar to marijuana.

    But I agree with Simo, I don't see any difference between cannabis and alcohol - except that alcohol kills a hell of a lot more people than cannabis. In my opinion, it's much better than the parents smoke pot around their kids than get drunk - though it's obviously best that they stay sober.

  4. so you don't see a difference between parents smoking weed in front of kids (without getting pissed), and parents having a glass of wine at a restaurant, again in front of the kids?

    maybe i am too shallow, but there is a social etiquette, that in my opinion, should be passed to the child. And smoking weed, sadly ;), is not considered something you do anytime anywhere.
