Parenthood: 4×08 – One More Weekend With You

I generally think this show portrays real human situations perfectly with a lot of reality and a lot of heart. It rarely gives me anything to complain about. In this episode, for instance, we had the perfect Ryan/Amber (and the moment in the ocean!), Julia/Joel learning to balance their time between two children and Kristina being heartbreakingly ill from the chemo (oh and Drew having sex but let’s just ignore that storyline completely because the one character in the TV universe which I am not okay with having sex is Drew because he looks so young and because of his character I thought he would/should be a virgin until at least college and even then, we do not need to know about that aspect of his life because he’s so innocent ….) However, in this episode we also had Kristina being so ill that Adam went to Crosby to get cannabis.

Let’s make this clear: I hate it when characters even go so far as to smoke normal cigarettes on screen. I hate smoking.

I don’t believe Kristina would have given in so soon given her family situation etc. However, I appreciate that cancer and that sort of pain is the one situation in which I can’t judge her for seeking relief from drugs.

But the one thing I have real uncontrollable anger issues with is the fact that Crosby just had cannabis lying around in his drawer in the first place, that Adam expected him to, and that Jasmine didn’t completely explode at this.

I’m sorry, whaaaat? He has a kid, he is now married and being responsible. Do responsible mature adults just keep a bag of cannabis in drawer for a rainy day? Why is Adam, Jasmine, Crosby and Kristina all okay with this scenario?! Why aren’t any of the responsible adults going absolutely crazy that Crosby still keeps cannabis around the house whilst he is apparently trying to do everything in his power to raise Jabbar right and be a good husband to Jasmine …. AND HE STILL POSSESSES CANNABIS.
