Help your readers challenge the idea that recreational use of marijuana is a benign activity. Citing current research, this guidebook shows that smoking marijuana affects school performance, causes lung and heart problems, and makes emotional difficulties like anxiety even worse. Thought-provoking text addresses pressing issues such as the dangers of combining alcohol and marijuana, how marijuana use is glamorized in the media, and how peers affect one's drug use. Information on treatment for marijuana addiction is provided, including individual therapy, and Marijuana Anonymous, a twelve-step program.
