Smoking Marijiuana In Teenage Can Result In Drug Addiction

Web Desk (May 21,2018): People who start smoking marijuana in the beginning of their teens are at a higher risk of having a drug abuse problem by the age of 28, study.

Researchers from by University de Montreal in Canada suggest that children in primary school need to be educated about the risks of starting pot smoking, especially now that the potency is much greater than it was in decades past and that public acceptance is being spurred by legalization in many places.The study found that those who started smoking pot between the age of 15 and 17 were at 44%higher risk of developing a drug abuse problem. However, the risk was higher at 68 per cent for those who started at an earlier age.“The odds of developing any drug abuse symptoms by age 28 were reduced by 31% for each year of delayed onset of cannabis use in adolescence,” researchers said. For the study published in the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry, researchers looked at data for 1,030 boys from some of the city’s impoverished neighborhoods begun in the early 1980s.The results confirmed the researchers’ suspicions: the younger they started, the more likely the boys had a drug problem later as young men. This is partly explained by the frequency with which they consumed cannabis and other drugs, but those who started before age 15 were at higher risk regardless of how often they consumed.
