November 10, 2014 Uncategorized Comments Off on Marijuana and Your Son
For many of us the idea of legalizing marijuana brings us to a heightened level of alarm, however for others, it is no big deal. Still some, a very small population, have found medical uses for marijuana and are very much in favor of its legalization. Where does that leave a parent with a teen son? Should you be concerned?
In the article found at www.sciencedaily.com it states “The nature of the teenage brain makes users of cannabis amongst this population particularly at risk of developing addictive behaviors and suffering other long-term negative effects.”
The article goes on to say that the way the teen brain is made puts a teen who uses marijuana at high risk of more addictive behaviors and brings the huge potential of long-term negative effects. This is according to the research at the University of Montreal and New York’s Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
The article goes on to say, “Of the illicit drugs, cannabis is most used by teenagers since it is perceived by many to be of little harm. This perception has led to a growing number of states approving its legalization and increased accessibility. Most of the debates and ensuing policies regarding cannabis were done without consideration of its impact on one of the most vulnerable population, namely teens, or without consideration of scientific data,” wrote Professor Didier Jutras-Aswad of the University of Montreal and Yasmin Hurd, MD, PhD, of Mount Sinai. “While it is clear that more systematic scientific studies are needed to understand the long-term impact of adolescent cannabis exposure on brain and behavior, the current evidence suggests that it has a far-reaching inﬂuence on adult addictive behaviors particularly for certain subsets of vulnerable individuals.”
As a parent it is very important that you engage your teen in a conversation about marijuana and its potential legalization in your state. But first, and of even more importance, is for you to become more educated about marijuana; its risk and potential habit forming properties. Be open with your teen about your thoughts as you engage him in his.
If you are raising your son to know Jesus then it would be a good idea to research what the Bible says about marijuana. I know…marijuana is not in the Bible, right? But many other topics are that point the reader to make their own ideas about marijuana’s use and its destruction. Let’s look at a few.
Ezekiel 16:49 talks about pride, gluttony and laziness. Talk with your teen in the area of pride. Pride will keep your teen from listening to your counsel. Gluttony simply means too much of anything and we know it is difficult to be a hard worker when a teen is doing things he should not be doing.
Proverbs 6:1-3 tells a child to honor their parents so they will have a long and productive life. As a parent you have certain standards or rules in your home of which you want your teen to honor.
Mark 15:23 says “They offered him wine drugged with myrrh, but he refused it.” Myrrh is used as a stimulant, among other things. Jesus did not want to engage in anything that would alter his state of mind as he hung on the cross to cover all of our sins. A time when it would have been understood, anything to mask the pain. But Jesus said no. He refused it, the Bible states.
