    You are very strange lately with your family, and your friends.

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "You are very strange lately with your family, and your friends. Maybe you are in something strange that we do not know. Are you involved in drugs, son?"

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    Note my corrections above.

    With "lately", you need the present perfect, not the present.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
