Nicole Davies

Hello! My name is Nicole and I am a Marine spouse and mother of three daughters, ages 16, 10, and 7. I have been a stay-at-home mom most of their lives while also pursuing my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. In the past I have worked as a social worker for child welfare in the state of Pennsylvania. I have also taught preschool for ages 2.5 - 4. During my master’s program I interned as a therapist at an inpatient psychiatric hospital working with adults, teens, and kids. My ultimate goal is to become an independently licensed therapist. Our family has lived in Onslow County for 10 of the last 15 years, which has given my children a stability that is rare among military families. While NC has been my home for several years now, I am still a Yankee at heart! I will always choose a Philly cheesesteak over a pulled-pork sandwich. In addition to taking care of my family and my educational pursuits, I enjoy traveling to destinations near and far; a novel in which I can get lost; and chatting with friends over a good cup of coffee.

Lemon Haze: A Drug For Teens?

So my friend told me a story involving her son, a text message, and a teen drug user. Last week her son received a text message from a friend asking to stay the night at another friend’s house because he was bringing lemon haze. His mom happened to read the text message on her son’s phone because he was in the shower. His mom had no idea what lemon haze meant. Therefore, she went straight to the Internet to find out what exactly it was before asking her son about it.

My first reaction to the story;  “What in the world is lemon haze?” I had never heard of it. Have any of you heard of such a thing? Turns out it’s a name used for a strong strain of  marijuana that is lemon flavored.

When she asked her son what lemon haze was he told her he didn’t know. She said she believed him because of a few reasons. First of all, she responded to the text as if she were her son asking “what lemon haze dude?’ By doing this she may get the answer she was looking for to determine whether or not her son knew about the drug. The drug user answered, “It’s good marijuana.”  He didn’t say something to the effect of “You know the stuff we did together.” She texted back that it was Bob’s mother and I don’t want you to ever text my son or step near him under any circumstances or she would call the police. She also told the boy she would be over to inform the parents. The drug user said “yes mam.”

She didn’t feel like she had a reason to believe her son was doing drugs because he has never smelled like marijuana and she felt he truly did not know about lemon haze. He did tell her he knew of teens that smoked it but he had never witnessed it before.

What do you tell your son? Stay away from friends who say they smoke marijuana? Are teens saying they smoke it to act cool?

So many challenges we face as parents of teens!

    You speak of marijuana if it’s some dangerous and harmful substence? In fact it can help cope with many diseases and also eases stress and promotes laughing and hunger. I get that you dont want your son smoking marijuana but for the love of God quick trying to play parents to other teens as well and focus on your own child. Marijuana is now legal in two states because people are starting to realize that it isn’t bad for you. Stop calling your son’s friend a “drug user” because I’m guessing you’ve popped a couple pills or drank some alcohol in your day. Simply realize you’re in the 21st century and step away from your son’s phone, it has his private conversations and I know you wouldn’t like it if someone read your texts messages while you were in the shower. BTW Lemon Haze is delicious and uplifting, dont deny it just try it.
    Have a nice day

    It’s parents like you that make kids smoke weed. Do some research before casting out weed like it’s some sort of terrible drug. You’re an idiot

    Really? Just because your son is in the shower doesn’t really give you the moral right to look at his text messages, even if you are paying for it an have the “right” to do so, it’s not morally right. Those are his personal conversations. And your son is more than likely smoking weed, but it’s not a bad thing. There are many strains of weed, and you asking “what’s Lemon Haze?” then the “drug” user just told him it was a good strain, because maybe your son just hasn’t smoked it before. If your son has never done it then they wouldn’t say “we got lemon haze” they’d say “you wanna try weed” or something along those eyes. Wake up lady, and take a hit, and relax, and let your son do the same, as long as his priorities are in order.

    Son smoked lemon haze ended up psychotic ! Terrified him and his friends . Liberal parents we knew he was planning to do it. Only stipulation was that he did it whilst we were in the house. Good job we were took him to the emergency room. Ok now took 3 days to return to normal. Maybe he is predisposed to psychosis, I don’t
