Ask Amy: Dad is stealing son’s medical pot
Dear Amy: My 30-year-old son “Danny” lives with me and my husband because he has serious health problems.
Danny works full time and has a medical cannabis card. He purchases marijuana every week.
About a year ago, I discovered that my healthy husband has been stealing marijuana from my son's bedroom and has been using it regularly.
Danny was upset but is too nice to confront his father.
I bought Danny a lockbox in which to keep his medication and told my husband that this situation is totally unacceptable. I even consulted a divorce attorney.
My husband said he is trying to stop using, but he continues to search my son's bedroom when my son and I are out. He also lies to me.
I would like to go away to visit a friend for a few days, but I'm hesitant to do this because I will not be able to monitor my son's bedroom, and I'm afraid my husband will take my son's medication while I'm away.
I would appreciate any advice on how to deal with this.

Dear Fed Up: In addition to stealing “Danny’s” property, your husband is also denying him doses of medication which he presumably needs. (Medical cannabis is used to treat many different and serious chronic illnesses.)
