Talking to and 18 year old that may be using drugs

Looking to discuss the challenges of helping a strong willed 18y/o young man through the dangers of drugs and potentially getting into trouble with the law as a result. Its one thing when they are under 18, we have a little more control...

That's a rough one.  Sorry you haven't heard back from anyone yet.  I started that discussion, however, years ago with my now teens.  I'd just launch into the discussion.  Drugs ruin lives.  Talk to the 18 year old to get their thoughts on it.  Has any discussion taken place since you posted this?
