Just because state law now states that marijuana is legal does not mean that a parent can smoke in front of their child and/or while their child is in their care.
Compare this to alcohol. If the parent constantly drank while having custody of the child, would the Court continue to allow them to do so?
Someone in your situation may wish to threaten or file a suit to MODIFY custody and get custody for majority time, with him only visitation
- perhaps no overnights and supervised - whatever the Court deems fit.
and see instructions.
The Court will modify custody if it feels that:
-there has been a significant change which warrants reconsideration, and
-it is for the best interest of the child
