    That is questionable. Like the author said, the reactions are different to each person. I know some people who are not even effected at all.

    Teenagers should not even know what weed is! They should be in Yeshiva taking the real deal drugs- Torah.
    Hashem Yishmor what has the world turned into?

    Find me a teen in Crown Heights that never heard of weed.

    My father was not so frum. However, when it came to drugs, he was
    fond of saying,”For that one moment in heaven, you have to spend a lifetime in hell.”

    I think this type of nuanced discussion is what is going to convince the youth. Thank you so much for this!

    This isn’t just a saying, it is scientifically proven. We have to show the kids the facts so that they open up their eyes and make the right decisions iy”h

    This is a interesting article that happened to coincide with a JEM video that was put out this past week. There was a individual who asked the Rebbe if drugs were a good thing. If getting high off of marijuana was something that can be productive. The Rebbe answered this person that marijuana is not a substance that should be used because it is external and when one wants to grab onto that external feeling it then disappear into nothingness.

    Education and healthy choices in life can stop it.
    Yes CH smells, hopefully kids will be busy with something else- promote free social clubs for our kids to keep them busy.

    Yet Pot is no better.
    But so many who won’t tolerate cigarettes are arguing so strongly against anyone who points out the evils and dangers, of Pot.
