If you give the 1st one to him it means you are supporting the fact that he wants to smoke weed and if you are okay with that then go ahead.

LOL ... well, didn't really specify his age. But it's only weed- shouldn't demonize herb while alcohol, caffeine, sugar and other cancer-causing, body-harming agents are legal and for sale all over.

I don't think it is a good idea. I'll ask him why does he want to smoke some weed then I'll ask him if he has already known the bad effect of it to him.

You should strongly discourage the use of any drug, tobacco or alcohol. In all honesty, you're doing more harm than good.

Although weed isn't as strong as any other drug it's still illegal and can be very addictive. If he's at the age where he can start making decisions on his own then have at it I guess, but if he's still in school, refrain from doing that. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend it either way regardless of his age.

The short answer is NO . The long one is : you should never give the first toke. Since it all begins in the first one. Weed and other addictive materials release toxins which may cause a feeling of satisfaction for a short time. But once it stops, it's the big problem. The consumer would like to take a bigger quantity until it gets bigger and bigger without knowing the serious consequences that may affect him.

I would answer that is it ok. It can be quite an experience, and it's helpful to have support from someone they trust. The first time, things can be, enlightening. It's helpful to have a non-judgmental source of knowledge, here's what other's feel..
