Teens sometimes need anti-depressants and relaxants and drugs to focus

Pot Facts

There has been a dramatic increase in the use of anti-depressants by both teens and adults in North America – somewhere in the realm of a 4x increase over the last 30 years. At least 5% of teens now use pharmaceutical anti-depressants, and 6% use attention-deficit drugs to focus in school. At least 4 million teens in North America are on one or both of these drugs.

Between the war on useful flowers (the war on drugs), the oil wars, the Fukushima nuclear power disaster, climate destabilization, the great garbage patch in the ocean, a failing economy, the wealth gap, the drone strikes, the refugee crisis, the rise of racist politicians and everything else that is harsh or frightening going on in the world today, can you blame some teens for being stressed out, sad, or unfocused?

An open minded assessment of the evidence leads one to conclude that cannabis is the safest, cheapest and most effective relaxant and anti-depressant known – even for teens!
