Why is she saying these things?

I was good friends with a guy who got in with the wrong crowd, started smoking cannabis and wouldn't get a job. Although im not into this stuff, i still used to see him on the odd occasion and text him quite alot. I then started hearing from other people that his mother was accusing me of getting her son into these things, and even told someone that i was 'the local drug dealer'. This really got to me as i am keen on my college work, have 4 A levels, a regular blood donor and a volunteer worker with the samaritans. - do i sound like the local drug dealer to you!? I know that I can ignore this myself and laugh it off, but it is giving me a really bad name in my village... what should i do about it?? thanks!

The mother my friend is trying to blame someone else for her sons wrong path to life. Mothers never want to blame their kids and she feels better blaming you, from her personal frustration. If her son is a drug addict, that women would be living a nightmare in her own home, and to feel better to the outside world she... More

I think you should confront his mother and him in a good way and then after that keep away from him you dont need people like that in your life they will only bring you problems on the long run. I know is hard when is a friend but that's not a friend..

I think you should ask her why she is saying this ... clearly you are not responsible for her sons problems! And then warn your family and friends whats happened so they know not to think anything of it if they hear it.
