My friend

05/06/2008

Question:

My friend jordan have a-lot of weed and he smokes it all the time i was wondering if thats normal for 14 year old boys to do that. And is there anyway i can stop him from doing it, we always had fun until he started this. Thanks for your help!

Answer:

If this 14 yr old boy is smoking marijuana regularly, he is in trouble. He is not giving himself a fair chance at life, and his future is bleak. He needs help, and he needs to see a professional who can help him stop. He is probably addicted to marijuana. Tell your friend that you are concerned about his smoking marijuana.....and don't you start smoking marijuana.
