The defendant mentioned how her previous boyfriend "wouldn't allow" her to partake in certain activities. So when she smoked weed after the breakup she probably felt free because it was something she knew she shouldn't have been doing or something she wasn't "allowed" to do. Yes the mother seems much too lenient with the defendant because she does not seem to have much control over the daughter. She also does not seem to discipline her for her actions and gives her too much freedom, when she may not know how to handle as much freedom as she is given.
The defendant believes that it is ok to smoke marijuana because the defendant Is unaware of the dangers and the detriments on her health. I believe that the defendant'a mom is too lenient on her and this has a negative impact on her daughter. She does as she pleases and it got her into an unnecessary fight and now she smokes marijuana.
Q1 I think that the defendant uses because it’s the only way that she finds herself to be who she really wants to be. Because before she was forced to be the person who her boyfriend wanted her to be. And she’s at a point where she’s trying to figure out who she can be without her boyfriend.
Q2 I do believe that her mom is to lienent with her and gives her the benefit of the doubt but we all know her daughter still does whatever she wants and in a way she even tells her mom what bad things she going to do. So if the mom knows she should try to be strict about things with her daughter.
1.I believe smoking weed makes the defendant feel free because her mental health makes her feel “stressed”. She believes that smoking helps her relieve that stress.
2. I believe the defendants mother is too lenient with her daughter. This has impacted her behavior because she does not have any restrictions which allows her to do anything she wants.
Q1 The defendant most likely said that smoking weed made her feel free because it allowed her to relax. It also most likely allowed her to temporarily forget her problems such as her breakup with her boyfriend.
Q2 No I do not believe that the mother was too lenient on her daughter. As she is going to college next year and is leagally an adult she should be accountable for her own actions.
Q1: I believe that the defendant believes that smocking weed makes her feel free because of the stress going on in her life.Also because it is somthing that she chooses to do that her ex boyfriend can’t stop her from doing.
Q2:I believe that her mom was too giving in terms of freedom with her daughter. She should have seen the way she handles her freedom and acted accordingly to mold her into an independent and responsible person
The defendant said that she only smoked with her friends if they had the weed on them. She was also always stressed and had anxiety every morning. The mother seems to not have full control on her daughter and the things she does.
Due to her past relationship in which she wasn't really allowed by her ex to do anything smoking to her feels like she is finally allowed to live her life. Yes the mother does seem lenient with the defendent because is seems that she has almost no control over her daughter like when she goes out to smoke she dosen't really know who her daughter goes with.
Q1: I believe that the defendant smoked weed to escape reality because she said she was suffering from anxiety and it made her feel better.
Q2:I think she was, however, they they were very close to each other and her mom probably trusts her when she goes out which is why she is lenient
I think the defendant felt free when smoking weed Bc she felt like she was in control of something, and it allowed her to escape her anxiety. I feel that the mother is way to lax with her which allowed her to develop an attitude and sort of philosophy that makes her snap.
