Youth drug use

Youth drug use

 

The more I listen to the news and word of mouth stories, the more I realize that kids seem to be trying drugs at a younger and younger age. We’re not even talking about starter drugs, we’re talking about real addiction to hardcore drugs that are difficult to get off of. No matter what I read I just can’t seem to find the answer as to why this is occurring so often.

Many kids are starting to smoke marijuana as young at 10 years old and progressing with their drug use from there.  You honestly shouldn’t even know about a drug at 10, none-the-less be using them. From what I’ve gathered, many of these kids are using with other brothers or sisters- even their own parent’s. However, that’s not always the case. Many of these young children are buying and experimenting with these drugs on their own recognizance.

I just can’t understand what is happening to our youth. Maybe this drug use is the reason some many young children have become deviants to society. I honestly fear for my youngest son, as to what the generations will be like when he’s old enough to know right from wrong. My 16 year old has so many horror stories about both the girls and boys much younger than him and it’s never ceases to blow me away.

I think we really need to start accessing the reason as to why the young is using drugs before they even really know much about life and what comes with drug use. The commercials against drug use are all in well, but there much be something else done before it is just too late.
