By now all of you have heard that just about every major city is legalizing weed in some form or another. I assume because the government has recognized just how much money is in the cannabis industry.Although it is no longer frowned upon, weed or marijuana has caused some serious problems in the lives of many people, teenagers especially. It is a drug and it’s very easy to become addictive, just like any other substance. However, because of many factors like peer pressure, lack of positive example and pure miseducation teenagers are still interested in smoking weed.
Disciplining the children may not be the best way to teach the pros and cons of the drug, mainly because teenagers are known for their rebellion. If someone can teach you the reasons something shouldn’t be done, the lesson has a better chance of being comprehended and obtained. Right?
Teenagers are at the age where they are more like babies than ever before. They are curious and diligently trying to figure out what they like and what they do not. Although I don’t encourage that they be allowed to smoke or drink in the presence of adults. The reality is they are going to try it one way or another. As a person without children who was raised by a very strict single mother, I now understand the effects that having the uncomfortable conversations can have on an impressionable person.
Your parents obviously don’t want you engaging in drug activity. But you, as someone who’s almost an adult have to be responsible for your own actions. Talk to someone you trust about how you feel. And don’t be afraid to ask questions. Nothing beats a failure but a try. Be prepared to answer questions honestly about your involvement with weed, and any other drugs. Dont be embarrassed around people who have done it and you haven’t. It is quite easy to wash to be accepted or seen as cool, but don’t drugs or drinking alcohol doesn’t make you cool by any means.
If you get to a point where you decide you want to move forward be sure that you have all the answers to your questions. Ensure that you are in a safe place with people you trust. There’s are so many cases of people going crazy because there were other drugs in the weed and it has messed them up for life.
