While many pot smokers deny that marijuana causes harm, the reality is different…especially for teens.  In fact, smoking pot causes cognitive and neural impairment.  Smoking pot in your teen years can lead to long term effects on mental ability, including IQ.

Here, we review who’s smoking pot, the risks of smoking pot, and how you can intervene. Then, we invite your comments, questions, and feedback in the comments section at the end.

Is Weed Harmless section: Should there be two circles that say “12th grade?”

Hi Gail. Thanks for the check. One of the red circles represents regular use, the other for occasional use, both from 12th graders.

Its amazing how pot is still class A in England. The amount of damage it does to kids children and adult that are specifically emphasising it does nothing! That whole calm high changes their personality!!! The glory of being a drugs worker and the stories of pot I have to put up with when clients tell me weed is nothing.
