          21-Year-Old Says His Mother ‘Automatically Assumes I’m A Drug Dealer Because I Smoke Weed’


          May 22, 2017

          Tina and David say not only do their sons, Michael and Matthew, smoke pot, drive under the influence, and behave disrespectfully toward them - they also claim their older son, Michael, deals drugs.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is your family a stressed mess?

          “My mom automatically assumes I’m a drug dealer because I smoke weed – and she thinks if you smoke weed you deal drugs,” says 21-year-old Michael, denying the allegation.

          “They seriously do treat pot like it’s meth,” says 16-year-old Matthew. He claims his parents allow him to drink alcohol at home, but when it comes to marijuana; his mother “always thinks the worst of Mike and I because we smoke pot. She’s overreacting – like – it’s a plant.”

          Michael says he recently moved out of his parents’ home. He claims his mother is a “psycho” who exaggerates everything, and his dad has a “very short temper.”

          Matthew has since gone to stay with his older brother. “I left a couple of days ago because my parents are psycho.”

          Tina and David say they blame Michael for being a bad influence on his younger brother.

          The brothers say it’s their parents who need help – not them. Does Dr. Phil agree? This episode airs Monday.
