It can be difficult to separate normal teenage rebellion from dangerous and risky behaviors. Before you start going through his things and invade his privacy, give him the opportunity to tell you the truth. Ask your son if he’s been smoking pot and let him know that you want to have a candid discussion with him about addiction and the problems that marijuana can cause in the long run. He may not take you seriously, or he may attempt to lie and deny the allegation. If you feel that your child’s being dishonest, then you can purchase an at home drug test at any local pharmacy.

Ask your son if he’d be willing to take an over the counter drug test. If he refuses, then it may be time to call in the police or a family counselor. These people can advise you on the best course of action, and may be able to force a drug screen, placing him on informal probation. Trust is really hard to establish and giving him a chance to be honest should be the first step. After he’s broken this trust, then it’s time to start going through his things and asserting your parental authority in his social life.
