WE NEED TO TALK
Topic: It can change your life

 Some teens think pot is better than alcohol. Wrong, wrong. Neither is good. Here is some brief info from a recent study.

A recently completed study of 20 years of research on cannabis use refuted the arguments many of marijuana advocates by proving the detrimental effects of chronic marijuana use. Novus Medical Detox (http://www.novusdetox.com/), one of the only Florida-based detox centers (http://www.novusdetox.com/) serving high-dosage drug abuse patients, maintains that the study’s results are indicative of marijuana’s true nature and the danger the substance poses to American society – as such, Novus discourages further legalization and increased public access which the facility maintains will only further contribute to the nation’s already rampant drug use and high levels of addiction.

Here is some more info:

  • Habitual users can develop a dependence syndrome, found in around one in 10 of all cannabis users and one in six among those who start in adolescence.
  • Regular cannabis users see a doubled risk of experiencing psychotic symptoms and disorders – specifically those with a personal or family history of psychotic disorders, and if they start using cannabis in adolescence;
  • Young adults who are cannabis users “have lower educational attainment than non-using peers, but it’s [unknown] whether the link is causal”;
  • Use marijuana frequently as a young adult “approximately doubles the chance of being diagnosed with schizophrenia or reporting psychotic symptoms in adulthood.” (1)

Bullying - it can get bad
Topic: It can change your life

I do hope that those of you who read this do not consider yourself a bully. Those of you who are bullied may want to get together with others who are bullied in your school and discuss what you can do to help. Educators are becoming more and more aware of the problem. If you love to write or make movies the item which I just received and am quoting may be of interest to you. Read on:

Past award winners have appeared on The Today Show, The Steve Harvey Show and many other media outlets as well as special youth guests at schools around the country and for Washington DC's National Bullying Prevention Summit, hosted by the federal government.

Materials from the event will be developed for distribution by NO BULL's Education Academy. This includes the campaign's award winning short films, ready-to-use classroom curriculum and assembly programs available at no cost to schools across the country.
