Featured Question:
My 19 year old son lives at home and commutes to college. I need to tell him some reasons why he shouldn't smoke marijuana.


Answer:

A. Let's make this nice and simple. 

#1 - it is against the law 
#2 - it is against the rules of your household 
#3 - it is a mind-altering substance (it changes the way the brain works) 
#4 - it affects the short-term memory needed to learn in school
#5 - it has long-term consequences for the lungs, heart, reproductive system 
#6 - it impairs the ability to operate a car.
