Marijuana abuse is becoming more and more frequent among teens. They begin experimenting with this drug at a younger and younger age. Some start this destructive relationship as earlier as 12 years old. Marijuana goes by many names including pot, mary jane, weed and more. As teens continue to increase their drug abuse they begin to find new ways to take drugs. Just like the drug term above teens have been using the paper from other drugs to smoke marijuana.
