    Harmful or Helpful?
    like anything, if abused it will be harmful.
    in some cases it can be useful for pain/arthritis and other medical uses.
    so all in all good for some bad for others.

    If you are on weed you are likely to change your mind about a lit of things. Especially if you were going to do anything. You will change your mind and not do anything and become a neer do well and never amount to anything. I would stay away from that stuff. Kids who smoke weed are 300% more likely to get tattoos, peircings, and flunk or dropp out of school and also get arrested at least once. Instead have shredded wheat with raisens and blueberries for breakfast, stay straight and stay in school. As teenagers you are stupid enough without something extra to further interfere with your brain receptors which you have hardly even begun to use! GL (I know by experience)
