It is normal to have stress when you are a teenager
The use of recreational pot amongst kids is absolutely common, but i am a teacher & I have worked with youth for eight years from the ages of eleven to eighteen in public schools, throughout my eight years I have seen at least six students get caught with recreational pot in school. The students were caught with recreational pot during random searches, some students were caught with recreational pot based on the way they smell & the way they are acting. Teachers & security guards have sent students to the dean’s office based on the smell of recreational pot & the visualization of orange eyeah… Many kids are interested in using recreational pot because of peer pressure. Teenagers often use drugs & participate in other risky behaviors because it seems that most people else is doing the same thing. I have taught numerous health classes & when going over the harmful effects of marijuana, several students would raise their hands & say that recreational pot is legal in several states, so it should not be that harmful. I would constantly counter with the points that alcohol & tobacco are also legal, but there are students that show the harmful effects on the body & mind. Teenagers are also drawn to recreational pot use because of the way it makes them feel. It is normal to have stress when you are a teenager. Trying to get good grades, fit in with others, do extracurricular activities, & apply to school can be stressful. Many teens say that using recreational pot makes them feel less stressed.
