My parents don’t approve of my boyfriend because he is an occasional pot user. I’ve tried telling them that it’s no biggie, but they keep lecturing me. They want me to stop seeing him. They say since I live with them they get to tell me who I can and can’t bring home. Are they right?

I assume you are over 18. You can try reasoning with them, but it’s their house until you move out. It’s not that they are right. It’s that they get to set the rules in the house. They may be rigid, but keep in mind they are trying to look out for you sprinkled with a little bit (ok, maybe a lot) of control.
