Your future on marijuana

For such a harmless product, studies show that marijuana users are NOT living the high life.

In fact, regular adult marijuana users generally earn less than average. They have higher job absences and go from job to job more frequently that the average person. They have higher numbers of accidents on the job.

For teens, translate those problems to academics. Students who are regular marijuana users get lower grades and are less likely to attend college.

In a large study of students in Australia and New Zealand, researchers found: “adolescents who used marijuana regularly were significantly less likely than their non-using peers to finish high school or obtain a degree. They also had a much higher chance of later developing dependence, using other drugs, and attempting suicide.”
