This is my 1st time here so please bear with me, my 23 year old son has smoked weed since he was about 16. At first I hoped it was a phase and he'd get bored eventually. He was diagnosed with ADHD at 7 and took ritalin until he discovered weed. In the past he has tried most drugs but thankfully not continued using them. He left home several years ago and has been 'asked to leave' several flats, however for the last 8 months he has been living on his own and I thought was starting to sort himself out. Yesterday he called me to say he had been arrested and held in the cells and is being charged with intent to supply. I am devestated and am being made to feel guilty as he saysi could have done more to stop him. My partner of 8 years does not get on with my son and is currently away, and if i have a choice wouldn't tell him. I have no one else I feel I can turn to and have no idea wher e to turn. Any advice would be gladly accepted.
