Understanding Long Term Effects Of Marijuana Use In Teens

Understanding Long Term Effects Of Marijuana Use In TeensJanuary 24, 2013 11:32Krasen

Over the years, marijuana has become an entirely different drug than what it was in the 1970′s. Today, the drug is far more intoxicating and research suggests that use in underage teens can have long term effects on the mind and the body.

In the United States, at least 200,000 were denied of financial aid for college because of recorded drug convictions. Marijuana is the most common illegal drug abused in the United States. According to the statistics, roughly 100 million Americans admitted that they have tried Marijuana at least once and 11.5% of Americans (approximately 25 million) have smoked marijuana last year.

Parents should have knowledge about this information and the statistics behind it to better protect their children against the dangerous and lasting effects the drug can have. The drug can seriously harm the mind and body and has long term effects on young people’s lives.
