Burbank Addiction Treatment Centers

Although marijuana is legal across the state of California—where Burbank lies—this drug is still dangerous and can cause serious long-term harm.

The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) found that in Los Angeles County 11.1% of survey respondents ages 12 and older had abused marijuana at least once. While this is below the state average of 12.5%, it is above the national average of 10.7%.1

It is illegal to possess marijuana at schools and to use it while driving, but it is legal to possess the drug, which could put adolescents at risk.2 The availability of a drug in a household increases the chances that other members will abuse the substance, and every year in the U.S., 11 million young adults between the ages of 18 and 25 abuse marijuana.3

Adolescent marijuana abuse can create many potential physical and mental problems and puts a teenager at increased risk of struggling with substance abuse for the rest of their lives. This naturally occurring substance is a psychedelic drug that can create a feeling of calm, but then may also change the perception of time and the senses, cause mood swings, and even lower IQ. A New Zealand study found that people who abused marijuana long-term lost an average of 8 IQ points between the ages of 13 and 38.3

Marijuana may be legal in some places, but like alcohol and nicotine, it is still addictive and can be harmful when abused. Evidence-based treatment is often needed to overcome this addiction; a reputable rehab center can provide this much-needed help.
