Signs of Marijuana Use

  • Spends less time with family and friends and more time alone or away from home
  • Often seems moody or irritable
  • Begins to skip classes, often shows up late for school, or has a drop in grades
  • Buys things like CDs and T-shirts with pro-marijuana messages or symbols
  • Loses interest in hobbies
  • Comes home high (talkative, giggly, red or glassy eyes) or goes straight to his room
  • Smells of marijuana
  • Possesses drugs or drug paraphernalia
  • Vapes are devices that heat liquid into an aerosol that the user inhales. The liquid usually has nicotine, flavoring and other additives.

​​



  • ​Many students perceive vape produce a "water vapor" when in fact they create aerosol that contain harmful chemicals, including known carcinogens such as formaldehyde, cadmium and benzene.
  • ​​Nicotine is highly addictive and can affect brain development.  CDC
  • ​​Teens who vape are three times more likely to use marijuana and six times more likely to smoke cigarettes than non-cigarette users. nih.gov., Pediatrics, April 2018  


Recent studies show that 75% of teenagers seeing photos on social networks of other teens smoking weed or drinking encourages them to party in the same way. Teens who have come across these kinds of photos online are 4 times more likely to have used marijuana and more than 3 times more likely to have consumed alcohol. Social media has also begun to desensitize children at a younger age as well — 90% of these kids saw their peers in these photos online before they were even 16 years old.
