Effects of Marijuana on the Teenage Brain
There are many effects marijuana has on the teen brain. Some of the effects include changes in perceptions and mood, difficulty with thinking and problem solving, disrupted learning and memory, and worst of all when driving, lack of coordination. These effects can last from 1 to 3 hours after ingesting the drug, longer if the drug is consumed in a food or beverage.
If you were convicted of driving high, you could be carrying a hefty hefty fine, or a long, long jail sentence. You could be sitting rotting in prison for years and years, where as if you had chosen not to drive high that one time, you could be out exploring the world, with a career and a life.
Think About Your Family
Although sometimes it might not feel like it, you're probably the thing your parents care about most in the entire world. If you were to be killed in a DWI accident your parents and family and everyone who knows you would suffer? Is driving high really worth that?
You Could Be Paying Massive Fines
If you were to hit someones car, or even worse, injure someone while driving high, you will definitely be shelling out enormous sums of money in reparations, lawyer fees, or even hospital bills. it could amount to tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, or you could pay the $30 dollars for an uber home. But I guess that's up to you.
