I was Chairman of the local high school for 12 years and in that time I had to attend many lectures on drug abuse. There is a popular belief that Canabis has no lasting effect and it is safe to use. Our goverment made it legal to have the drug if it was for self use only. The truth is the goverment did not want to spend the time and money on the police or the courts dealing with the problem. CANABIS IS NOT SAFE AND IT DOES HAVE A PEMANENT EFFECT if used over a prolonged time. Constant regular use causes serious mood swings and all the other problems that go with them. This young lady is showing these signs at a quite early age. The NHS is very worried about the future cost of dealing with these people in the next ten years by which time the real effects will be all to evident. Dealing with this young person is a very hard thing to do, you must remember that when their behavour is bad they dont know that it is. You have to help the person to see the state they get into before you can get them to accept that they have a real problem. One good way is to video them when they are at there worst without them knowing and then on a good day let them see themself. Hard as it may seem confrontation does not work, you have to try to get them to see themselfs and accept they have a problem if not there is very little you can do. Its all too common for this situation to happen, first thing you need is to get rid of the fella or he will just suck her down. The girl needs help but sometimes you have to accept that you are not able to.
Found this thread on the internet because I've been researching what the government in Canada is trying
to undo by letting cannabis be legal and accessible to anyone, including students. Of course is not legal for them to buy it but the bar is set way to low to get it. I'd think that with that now with the development of new education theories, internet resources, all kinds of new technology devices (something I surely didn't have back then when I was in high school), the government would have a veeery easy way to produce good students SO why did it have to let cannabis make its way to students. My niece the other day was getting free math help from this algebra 1 tutor
app service all by herself, I mean, no teacher no nothing, only herself and her notes, that's the kind of help is available nowadays.
I've been looking for
some time now many studies that point out (almost unanimously) to the long-term or permanent effects cannabis can have in our brains, specially to those brains that are still being formed. I wish my government and society in general would see the threat cannabis IS to everyone.
