There are serious drug problems in the world today.
abused are marijuana, alcohol, and hard drugs. Drug abuse is real and is a growing .
concern in schools today. .
Today the use of marijuana by teens is becoming out of control. Some of these .
students are using everyday, which is disgusting. Other teens are addicted so bad that .
they even get high before school. Because use rates are up so much, acedemics are .
starting to be affected. Smoking daily makes students not want to do homework or .
study for an exam. Therefore these bad decisions are causing grades to slip drastically. .
Not only does using marijuana hurt academic performance, it also makes a person's .
lungs and body hurt. This use reduces motivation to maintain personal hygiene.The .
fact that the lungs are tared and hurt , attributes to one's lack of athletic motivation or .
ability. The abuse of marijuana is a problem in high schools everywhere. .
The consumption of alcohol is another big problem in high schools. High school .
students are partying every weekend and drinking alcohol in the process. Drinking to .
them is considered recreational. These habitual drinkers do not realize that there are .
better activities to use ones time doing. Another example would be drinking and driving, .
it is a scary but real occurance. Kids think that they are ok to drive but are really too .
drunk to realize that they are not. Hearing about drunk driving deaths is a painful, .
disheartening feeling. The other problem with alcohol is students drinking too often and .
becoming alcoholics. These people drink more than just on weekends. Although very .
disgusting, some students need to consume alcohol before or during school due to .
addictions. Alcohol use and abuse is another of the severe problems among high .
Not only are marijuana and alcohol a problem, harder drugs are beoming a .
cuase for concern as well. As silly as this sounds, Robitussin is being used to get high.
