Bill and Jen claim their daughters, Emma and Meredith, are both addicted to marijuana, but the teenagers say that’s not true.
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: At your final breaking point?
Emma, 18, who says she suffers from anxiety and depression, claims marijuana is her “medicine,” and says she smokes “weed” because it allows her to “function on a normal level.”
Meredith,16, admits she smokes several times a day, and like her sister, denies being addicted.
The young women’s’ parents also report multiple behavior and discipline issues with their daughters that they say include lying, stealing, joy-riding, and violent behavior toward each other and others’ in the family.
“What you’ve got here – no matter how we got here – you’ve got girls here that are addicted,” Dr. Phil tells Bill and Jen on part two of a two-part episode airing Tuesday.
