Chronic marijuana use by teenage boys does not appear to be linked to later physical or mental health issues such as depression, psychotic symptoms or asthma, according to a study published by the American Psychological Association.


This is amazing. Don’t get me wrong: kids shouldn’t be smoking pot. But I bet if those same kids they tested were using alcohol, you would’ve seen different results. Yet, alcohol is legal and marijuana is not.

I don’t think alcohol, marijuana, or tobacco should be legal to anyone under 18. We need to mark that line in the sand. As adults, you’ve got the freedom to pick and choose what you want to do, but it shouldn’t happen until you’re 18 years old.
