Contact your local police department. "Tough love" is certainly appropriate in the situation you describe. The police may have some resources available for your son. Sometimes a "boot camp" type environment works well, other times they may need to get involved in a "Scared Straight" type program. Whatever you do, don't turn your back on this situation. He needs a reality check, and needs it now. Sorry to hear that you are having problems with the ones you love. It must be difficult. Remember that you certainly aren't doing him any favors by ignoring the behavior. What he is doing will assuredly result in his destruction. * The agency with jurisdiction to assist would be the Maryland Social Services Administration. Since the parents acknowledge that they are aware of the minor child using illegal substances, they should be extremely cautious involving law enforcement until they have been apprised of their own accountability status. The legal age of majority for the state is 18.

Do abusive parents become abusive to grandchildren?

Yes, but usually if it's physical abuse it doesn't happen as often with grandchildren because the parents are usually around and also, when parents bring up their own children their patience often grows thin, but when grandchildren come along they seem to have more patience (perhaps because they aren't around them 24/7 and they go home eventually.) If grandparents were abusive to their own children then I would hesitate to leave children with them. If it was sexual abuse then this never goes away! Don't leave children when anyone in the family that has sexually abused children even if their mate is with them or other family members. Most children that are sexually abused are by a father, grandfather or a close relative. In some cases women can sexually abuse males in the family.
