teens, do you think that drugs/drinking are stupid or do you do them?
i personally believe there is nothing more stupid in the world than using a substance that is scientifically proven to be only bad for your body. drugs are addicting and in the case of hard drugs can ruin your life after just one try and everyone knows that weed is just a gateway drug. drinking is just a recipe for disaster, no one can make good choices while intoxicated and if you’re with a group of irresponsible, hormonal teenagers the choices you make are going to be extremely stupid and reckless.
what do you think?
jenny – no, i’ve never tried weed. weed contains carcinogenic chemicals (that means they are proven to cause cancer) long term use also causes short term memory loss, anxiety attacks, and other mental effects. i don’t want any of those things in my life. plus, it’s illegal.
and for coping with stress, try yoga. it’s legal and actually good for you.
kels – i TOTALLY get that all the time. not all teens are stupid and reckless!
merceders – thank you for that very well-thought out answer. i never claimed to be an expert on weed. even if it was the most healthy thing in the world, it is still illegal in the good old U S of A. depending on where you live and how many convictions you have you can even get put in prison for life. that is a fact you can’t dispute. i don’t claim to know everything about marijuana and it’s effects, but i KNOW people who started off smoking weed and moved up to harder drugs. props to you if you’re not going to do that. i know some people smoke it for religious reasons, but let’s be real, how many teenagers in america are smkoing it for religious reasons with their buddies?
and FYI, i don’t eat junk food…
