More and more states are decriminalizing and legalizing marijuana. Marijuana education is increasingly important as perceptions of the risk associated with marijuana use change. Marijuana use can severely impact you and those around you. It can lead to psychosis, impair learning, cause problems later in life, impair driving ability, and more.
