  5. What is marijuana abuse?
Asked: 2018-06-11 22:09:06
I found some marijuana in my son’s room. I try to be open and honest as a parent but he hasn’t told me anything about this and it seemed quite a lot. How do I know if it’s too much?

Many teenagers use marijuana these days and many times it’s nothing to be worried about. Abuse is really when it becomes a focus for them, like all they want to do is get high. If you have a good relationship, it’s best to try and talk to him about it, just alert him to the long-term dangers like memory problems and lung problems.

Most people think you can’t get addicted to marijuana but mentally you can and that’s when the relationship becomes abuse. If you’re seeing negative effects such as his grades slipping, or spending lots of time alone smoking, then it may be abuse.
