Weed + Teens = Mental Health Disaster
Think weed is all fun and games? Think again.
A new study reveals startling findings when it comes to teens and marijuana use.
I’m Tomi Lahren, more next.
Now legal in 22 states plus DC, marijuana is seen by many to be a harmless, causal and natural drug. Well, perhaps not so much.
A new Columbia University study suggests that teens who use marijuana recreationally are two to three times more likely to be diagnosed with depression.
The study references data from over 68,000 teens and shows that both the casual use and addiction to cannabis is “significantly associated” with psychiatric disorders.
Teens who use weed recreationally were two to three times more likely to suffer from depression and/or have suicidal thoughts than those who don’t use pot at all.
This should be a BIG wake up call. Just because you think this stuff is “natural” or “plant-based” doesn’t mean it can’t harm you.
Mental health is already a big struggle for young people and the fact that weed use can worsen it, is no small revelation and shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Popular culture has GLORIFIED the use of weed and it’s about time to take a step back and realize we are playing with fire.
