    Your brother is an ass. You are on a work trip in which YOU (assuming you or your company at least) paid for the hotel. He needs to do whatever the hell you tell him to or he can go pay for his own room.

    Why on earth did you invite your stoner brother to come with you on a business trip?

    onepeople101 :  How disappointing. You were trying to get closer with him, and his need to get high even at risk to your fricking career which is paying for his hotel room, is messing it up. Very sad. This is not your fault and you should not feel bad that he’s throwing a tantrum. You should however, learn a lesson from it. Stoners gonna stone. You are clearly not going to get him to stop, so any relationship you have with him has to be with the understanding that he vapes THC. If you don’t approve or don’t want to be around that, you’re not going to be able to have a close relationship with this brother.

    misslucy :  My husband did that when we were engaged. I was at a hotel in DC for a month and he would come down Friday – Sunday and tour on his own while I went to work.

    No vaping in the room. Lights out when I have to sleep to prepare for work. No disturbing me when I’m sleeping. I’d have no problem saying that to a sibling. You’re there for work, and were nice enough to let him crash at your hotel but work is your #1 priority and he should respect that, no questions asked.

    You tried to do something considerate and nice–he refuses to be considerate or nice in kind. He has no respect for you or what is at risk for you. He’s being a dick. Sorry, Bee.

    Since he has a 6-figure salary, he can pay for his own room. Frankly, I’m not sure why two adults would want to share a room in this kind of situation, particularly if money isn’t an issue.

    onepeople101 :  Your brother sounds pretty emotionally stunted. It was kind of you to invite him but you probably should have just made him get his own room from the beginning. If he’s making a 6 figure salary, he doesn’t need to share a room and if he can’t be in a room by himself, he’s got some pretty significant issues that a professional should be contacted to work through with him.

    onepeople101 :  If he’s smoking weed in a hotel room which your company is paying for, you can be held accountable for that. He needs to stop immediately. One of your neighbors could complain and your company could find out. Would you let him murder someone in your hotel room?
