As a general rule, teens should not be smoking cannabis

However, also as a general rule, the only reason that this is a topic is because the pro-drug war, pro-police state crowd will take any damaging info they can drum-up, and if it lures you into appearing to support giving kids drugs, so much the better. (this study counters a recent one that suggested a connection)

So just focus on the fact that even for people that started as teens, "Chronic marijuana use does not appear to be linked to later physical or mental health issues such as depression, psychotic symptoms or asthma, according to a study published by the American Psychological Association"
