Currently, marijuana use among teens and teens in America has increased, which is quite contrary to previous statistics when some efforts to examine marijuana use were launched and continued (Steve Sussman). This trend of marijuana use has caused many problems, as various researchers have shown results in different areas after their detailed and extensive research. The first problem we encounter is the problem of health, which is a central human problem and without which we cannot enjoy life to the fullest.
