There is a reason marijuana is known as “the gateway drug”. Easily accessible and considered by many adults to be relatively harmless, many teenagers who find they like the high marijuana provides will move on to other, even more serious drugs.
Many who think of marijuana as a “harmless” drug, do so because when they think of the drug, they are thinking of the marijuana they may have smoked back in the 60’s, 70’s or 80’s. However, selective breeding and sophisticated as well as the growing techniques over the past twenty years, including hydroponics and special lighting systems means today’s marijuana is much different today. The marijuana being smoked by teens today is at least ten times more potent than what their parents may have smoked when they were teenagers.
Few teenagers will put themselves in the position of being around their parents when they are high. However, there are other indicators of a teen smoking pot. Parents who suspect their teenager is using marijuana should keep their eyes open for these indicators.
- rolling papers
- hash pipes
- small plastic bags with remnants of dried marijuana leaves
- remnant seeds in pockets
- the “sweet” odor of marijuana smoke on clothes, bedroom, or car
- lighters or matches
- use of the word pot, or 420 (nicknames for marijuana)
Cigarettes are also a good indication of teenage marijuana use. Many teens begin cigarette smoking in order to hide the smell of marijuana smoke, or to explain the presence of matches or lighters in their possession.
