What helps you relax the most after a stressful and long day? A nice hot bath? Some pampering? A little bit of nap time? Teens these days are not settling for a little down time to ease the day. Kids are residing to a little more extreme relaxation technique to calm themselves. Such as smoking marijuana.
Marijuana is also known as, weed, loud, pot, and dope. Marijuana is known for stopping cancer from spreading, reducing the chances of seizures from epilepsy, and a severe seizure disorder, called Dravet’s Syndrome. Also other health- problems.
A student from Samuel Clemens High School, Bryana Johnson, gave her opinion about the positive and negative effects of marijuana.
Johnson said that the most negative effect of smoking marijuana was, “Losing your mind and not doing what you are supposed to do.”
Pot, which is a slang term for marijuana, is recalled for its short-term effect of hallucinations. Bryana also said that the most positive effect of smoking marijuana was, “You’re more easy going. No stress.”
Depression and anxiety are some symptoms that may decrease when using weed.
Other than Marijuana being know to aid physical health problems, it is also known to help mental conditions such as, insomnia, migraines, anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder. Statistics that were medically proven, showed that depression is more common in the ages of kids who are 14-17. Most of them are girls.
Another student from Samuel Clemens, Adrianna Worthy, said, “Teens have a lot of anxiety and stress and marijuana makes you feel free.”
Worthy also explained that, “When smoking marijuana, You don’t really get crazy. It just relaxes you and you feel chill but when you drink alcohol, you get all crazy and do bad things. Such as, crashing cars.”
Study says, that 30% of Americans are alcohol abusers. Another study also proved that pot increased the rate of being in an accident by 83%. While alcohol increased the rate of being in an accident by 2,200%.
