Doctors Say Pot Can Be Dangerous For Developing Brains

Researchers say that not only are marijuana products three to five times stronger than they were a decade ago, the drug itself isn't safe for the adolescent brain. The nation is tolerating the use of this unsafe drug and now when it's become legal many kids think that it's legal then it would be good and save.

Ammerman claimed that many parents might think that if they use it cautiously and they are fine, then their kids might also use marijuana since it is benign and it does not trigger addiction. A group of doctors is trying to raise awareness among parents, stating the potential damages which could be involved in marijuana consumption among adolescents.

"Parents really need to model behaviors of drug use". Moreover, some parents smoke marijuana too.

According to the report, increasing legality of marijuana across the country for medical and recreational use has created "an environment in which marijuana increasingly is seen as acceptable, safe, and therapeutic". The report was published on February 27 in Pediatrics. Since brains continue to develop well into the mid-20s, that makes the prevalence of marijuana use among high schoolers particularly concerning.

In a newly released statement, AAP said, "So if you use marijuana in front of your teens, they are more likely to use it themselves, regardless of whether you tell them not to".

A new report from the American Academy of Pediatrics says that doctors have been getting an increased number of questions from parents about their children using marijuana. The report shares a list of adverse effects and points out that data only supports prescribing it to children in extremely limited circumstances-for decreasing seizures in specific epilepsy conditions, such as Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome.
