Marijuana is bad for teenagers in multiple respects. I cannot answer completely as I am not an expect in this area, however one disadvantage is that it can in fact damage… your brain to such a point that your mental health can become dangerous. This then has effects on education, where you won't be able to concentrate etc which will then lead you to have a low-end job in the final result.
63% of teenagers between the ages of 13 - 18

This comes from the White House: "Marijuana legalization for any purpose is a non-starter in the Obama administration." Also "The costs of legalizing marijuana would outw…eigh any possible tax that could be levied." As for medical marijuana, federally the only thing close to marijuana that you can be prescribed is Marinol which comes in the form of a pill or liquid. Some state governments allow actual marijuana to be prescribed but anyone participating in the use of it, even though prescribed can be punished by federal law. So the answer is no.
He does not smoke it any more, and hasn't smoked it for many years. During high school, he went through a period of rebellion, and was hanging with a group of students who fre…quently smoked marijuana, and also experimented with cocaine. Mr. Obama has never hidden from this period of his life and has written about it in his autobiography. He has said it is not something he is proud of doing. Fortunately, he was still a good student, and he never got arrested or suspended. But his grandparents and his mother were undoubtedly displeased when they found out about his use of drugs, since that is not how they raised him. Eventually, when he got to college, he decided to stop using them and focus on his studies.
The foremost drug that teenagers use is alcohol because it is widely accessible and accepted by society as a legal drug. Marijuana on the other hand is the second most used dr…ug. Despite popular belief the majority of marijuana users span over every generation from teenagers to seniors. This belief is mostly due to the propagation of mainstream media. Both drugs have severe long term addictive natures.
In a word... no
Marijuana can be addictive to anybody, regardless of age. Marijuana is not physically addictive -- meaning, a round-the-clock user who suddenly quits will not suffer physical… withdrawal symptoms. They won't get sick, the way an alcoholic or a heroin addict gets sick when they suddenly stop using. However, like most drugs, it makes you feel good, so it can be psychologically addictive. Regular users can build up a tolerance to it. They become so accustomed to being on the drug, that they actually feel normal when they're on it, and they feel distinctly abnormal when they stop. It doesn't matter what your age is; anyone can potentially become addicted to marijuana. Some people are just born addicts. They just can't do any drug without getting addicted to it. Others have this kind of personality to a more limited extent -- they have a tendency to drink or do drugs to excess, but are able to keep themselves from becoming full-blown addicts. But usually, people develop drug addictions because they are depressed and unhappy with their lives, and are self-medicating to feel better. So, the people who are most at risk of becoming drug addicts are those who have this addictive personality, and those who suffer from depression or other types of psychological illess (like bipolar disorder).
Same as adults. I mean dizziness, laughter, fun... Only worse thing that for adults, that it can damage your lungs badly. I mean teenager's lungs are easier to hurt. A…nd of course if that teenager is stupid, he will get addictive. But that is a problem of himself, not a weed's one.
He doesn't, it's just another person, trying to be an idiot and using Barack in their username.
A bunch of leaves seem harmless, right? But think again. Marijuana has a chemical in it called delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, better known as THC. A lot of other chemicals are …found in marijuana, too-about 400 of them, many of which could affect your health. But THC is the main psychoactive (i.e., mind altering) ingredient. In fact, marijuana's strength or potency is related to the amount of THC it contains. The THC content of marijuana has been increasing since the 1970s. For the year 2007, estimates from confiscated marijuana indicated that it contains almost 10 percent THC, on average. Such loss of coordination can be caused by smoking marijuana. And that's just one of its many negative effects. Marijuana affects memory, judgment, and perception. Under the influence of marijuana, you could fail to remember things you just learned, watch your grade point average drop, or crash a car.
I believe it is because of the notion that marijuana is not harmful, and is easily accessible. If you are worried about your teen, just do some research and talk about it.
buy him it them it they will do it in front of you or behind your back
well, marijuana harms teenages by messing with there brain cells. marijuana also helps teens at the same time by helping them focus in school, meaning give a teen work while h…e is high off marijuana he/she can understand more cause it helps the mind expand therefore it helps but at the same time it kills your brain cells it definitely harms you and take my advise: do NOT take it if ur out there!
In Barack Obama
The president undoubtedly feels very conflicted about it. On the one hand, as he has admitted in his own writings, he went through a period of time in high school where he reb…ellious and was hanging with a crowd that used marijuana frequently. He eventually moved away from any drug use, and does not think using drugs is a good way to escape from one's problems. But that said, he understands that if he comes out strongly against drugs, it's kind of hypocritical, since he once used them. Further, as the chief executive, he has to defend the country's laws, until congress changes them, and at this point, drug use (including marijuana) is illegal at the federal level. However, popular opinion about marijuana (especially medical marijuana) has been changing in some parts of the country and a legalization movement has been taking place in certain states. The president has not expressed a belief that marijuana should be legalized. It remains to be seen what he will do about the current drug laws: in his first term, he was mainly focused on economic issues, and was not very vocal about the drugs laws, although he did say the justice department would continue to enforce existing laws.
