Teen drug and alcohol statistics:
Teens using marijuana jumped from 13.4 percent in 2012 to 14.8 percent in 2014.
As marijuana continues to gain acceptance all around the nation after its legalization for medical and recreational use in some states, one important point is being omitted from the narrative. What about our teen’s. After all, they are our country’s future. What message is this outpouring of marijuana’s acceptance sending to teens in an effort to address teen marijuana abuse. And most importantly, let’s not forget that there is medical evidence that marijuana is more dangerous to teens and more specifically their brain than older age groups.
