Ive seen my friends grow up recently into older teens now. They used to be really cool and stuff, but now they like smoking... illegal things if you know what i mean. I want you guys to know that if you know someone whod oes this and it bothers you too you can talk to me about it because i understand how you feel about it too.
but really, what i want to talk about is how you guys feel about recent growth in teenagers smoking things not tobacco?
would you reach out to a friend in need?
we need more good people reaching out to people addicted to drugs so they can be good people again too.
if you were addicted to drugs how would you want to be approached?
i for one would want my family to step in and throw an intervention. i feel like if enough people i care about told me that i had a problem and couldnt livea normal life i would really change my mind about whatever drug i would be addicted too.
thank you please think and respond.

Unless it's marijuana, which has been proven to be beneficial to people's health.

temporary for people with health problems, maybe.
it is not beneficial for healthy people.
when used for a longer time on a high amount during your teenage years, it will make your short term memory worse. and marijuana use in combination with psychological problems such as a trauma or social disorders. has a higher chance for causing schizophrenia..

Some people who smoke pot turn into burnouts. It's not so much the drug that does this as much as the person's life style.

I've seen plenty of girls dye their hair black, wear baggy clothing, and change their style just because they were introduced to that style by friends or boyfriends.

People who do the whole, "all I want to do is smoke weed" thing are just being immature. It's easy to smoke pot and not be a moron about it.

I think people who smoke are plain stupid. They put pictures of themselves up on social media thinking it makes them look cool. It doesn't. It makes you look stupid and trashy.

It seems your issue more so lies in people that are public and "in your face" (per se) about their habits..which is fine and dandy. But you shouldn't generalize all people that do so as "stupid".

I smoke cigars. I love them, once in a great while I assist my friends in ridding them of their stash of tree, but I usually only do it socially. Whatever your hobbies or habits are is cool with me, as long as it's not stabbing people, or shooting them. Just don't rub it in my face.

I smoke weed, am into shrooms.
I find stuff like heroin and meth and synthetics absolutely pathetic and useless.
I know a lot of people who are forever ****ed due to synthetics. They're really big where I grew up. Glad to say I never have done it or ever will.
The drugs I use, are for spiritual purposes. I'm Germanic/Norse Pagan and the Vikings were known for growing fields of pot and using shrooms in religious ways.
Even without the religious aspect of it for me, I enjoy it, and weed in fact gives out positive benefits regarding health. Also I don't smoke much, a few times a month if that even.

I think all drugs should be legalized and properly regulated accordingly.

I hate having to be so sneaky with my heroin. Maybe if the government regulated it..my money wouldn't have to go to North Korea or some shiz.

It would depend on the drug. Obviously heavier more addictive and more dangerous drugs would require more restrictions and different regulations to obtain, use and sell.

From alcohol and tobbacco, to meth and beyond. Ban everything.
and impose stricter penalties.

Sure when you are dying of cancer, any drug that makes you forget your suffering is welcome.
Other wise, NO.

Because the prohibition taught us nothing about U.S. culture.
