Marijuana (and/or other marijuana products (e.g., edibles, hash-oil, “dabs”)) is the most commonly used illegal drug among teens in the U.S., and recent surveys indicate that it is now more popular than cigarettes. However, teenagers tend to underestimate the risks associated with marijuana and other drugs (e.g., alcohol, cigarettes), and the information teens receive about these risks may be inaccurate. To ensure that your teen receives accurate information about the risks, it’s important to talk with your teen about marijuana use.
