However, these days most pot is laced with other, harder drugs - hence why pot is called a gateway drug. And even though pot is a "naturally grown substance" rather than a chemical, its not exactly safe, either. Leaving aside the fact that it is a drug, the levels of THC(?) in pot are worse than those of cigarettes, which causes other problems.
It sounds to me that your cousin and his parents are absolutely right about not wanting to make a decision right now. Your other aunt, on the other hand, very well could be just waffling. Although, if it was HER mother that just died recently - she may just not feel up to going.
We are also currently experiencing some issues with family members. It totally sucks, but at the end of the day, if they aren't going to be there, then they aren't going to be there. But these are immediate family member in my case - brothers and parents. I don't expect ANY of my aunts and uncles to go.
Take a breath - even if it was just you and your FI, it would still be a great day, right??
Yeah, I think most of us feel like he's doing more than just pot. I HATE that he's doing this to himself and it makes me so sad because he could have such a great life if he'd straighten up. He can really be a great person. I feel terrible for him and his family and think the best thing they can do is stay home and take care of him. I have NO problems with that would never expect anything else. I'm just not sure what my aunt expects to accomplish by staying home.
