Detect pot smoking in teen? Topic: Different kinds of academic papers

Question: I suspect my step son is smoking pot but dont know for sure. Sometimes there is a smell about him which is like cigar smoke only I know it isnt cigars. It isnt cigarette smell either. The smell seems pleasant and aromatic. Could it be pot? Confrontation gets nowhere. Behavior wise he is always disappearing to remote corners of the garden and sometimes is in an exalted state over nothing. One time I had placed a sieve like filter over the bathroom sink drain and found tiny brown grains in it. Fool that I was I wondered if it was small dead brown ants or something like that. Now I remember that all grains were equal in size. I asked my stepson what they were (was genuinely puzzled) and he seemed to get angry at the mere question, ran the tap and drained it off and brushed off my question. Is hash or marijuana grainy and brown in color? Any feedback would be most appreciated. Thanks.

Q: What is Marijuana? Are there different kinds? A: Marijuana is a green, brown, or gray mixture of dried, shredded leaves, stems, seeds, and flowers of the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa). Before the 1960s, many Americans had never heard of marijuana, but today it is the most often used illegal drug in this country. Cannabis is a term that refers to marijuana and other drugs made from the same plant. Strong forms of cannabis include sinse-milla (sin-seh-me-yah), hashish ("hash” for short), and hash oil. Q: How can I tell if my child has been using marijuana? A: There are some signs you might be able to see. If someone is high on marijuana, he or she might seem dizzy and have trouble walking; seem silly and giggly for no reason; have very red, bloodshot eyes; and have a hard time remembering things that just happened. When the early effects fade, over a few hours, the user can become very sleepy. Parents should be aware of changes in their child’s behavior, although this may be difficult with teenagers. Parents should look for withdrawal, depression, fatigue, carelessness with grooming, hostility, and deteriorating relationships with family members and friends. In addition, changes in academic performance, increased absenteeism or truancy, lost interest in sports or other favorite activities, and changes in eating or sleeping habits could be related to drug use. However, these signs may also indicate problems other than use of drugs. In addition, parents should be aware of: signs of drugs and drug paraphernalia, including pipes and rolling papers. odor on clothes and in the bedroom use of incense and other deodorizers use of eye drops clothing, posters, jewelry, etc., promoting drug use Go to the site below for more informative material: http://www.drugabuse.gov/MarijBroch/pare...

Bennet Originally Answered: Is smoking marijuana as harmful to your health as smoking cigarettes?
As stated above a Vaporizer has virtually no health risks. Even if you were to compare A cigarette to a rolled joint or blunt, a cigarette is still unhealthier. A recent study came out to prove once again that no cancer causing agent is linked to marijuana.
Bennet Originally Answered: Is smoking marijuana as harmful to your health as smoking cigarettes?
Using a vaporizer is not the same as smoking, it doesn't damage your lungs nearly as much. Also, he (probably) smokes less marijuana than you smoke cigarettes, and marijuana is not as physically addictive. You also can't smoke weed in most public places, making it harder to light up any time you want to get high. The vaporizer decreases the risks of lung cancer substantially, plus he probably smokes less, so I'd say it was less harmful.

Rosie C has a very good response and, I just read on CNN that cannabis is related to psychotic diseases, it's not know if one develops these diseases from smoking pot or, the disease is there and the pot smoking brings it out. In a 17 years study of over 47 thousand, yes thousand people, it's found that psychotic tendencies are brought out by the chemicals in pot. One should be aware of what could happen if one indulges. If this step son of your continues to elude you then you and your husband should corner him and find out for sure and put a stop to it before this gets out of hand and he graduates to higher things like meth. I ignored my daughter and son-in-law due to making my American dream and they needed help. Now he's in prison, the children do have a nice home after twelve years and she has another nice man. It all could have been avoided had I jumped up on the table and screamed at her and him, maybe it would have done something other then the response I took.

Shulamite Originally Answered: Why is marijuana smoking considered very cool when (tobacco) cigarette smoking is considered uncool and nasty?
Cigarette smoking was only considered cool before they knew what horrible effects it had. As for pot, it is NOWHERE near as harmful as cigarettes for you. Cigarette related illness causes tens of thousands of deaths a year, while marijuana causes almost none. Anyone who thinks that you can't live while smoking pot is a narrow minded idiot, unable to admit that marijuana should be legalized, just like those idiots that run this country. If you don't believe me, check this out http://norml.com/index.cfm?Group_ID=3418. There are no cases of marijuana overdoses EVER, while thousands die from alcohol poisoning and drunken driving every year. I maintain a 3.8 GPA and am working towards a Masters in education, so don't say that it "rots your brain." Marijuana should be legalized, and tobacco should be banned. Every country that has decriminalized marijuana has lower usage rates among its people than the US and the tens of millions of dollars that we spend on the "drug war" could be used to enhancing education and helping the homeless. Our whole country is screwed up and I feel bad for those of you who don't see that.
