    i agree with everything makeumon has said.

    drug use in anyone can lead to health problems but these can be so much worse for teenagers who's bodies have not yet finished growing
    i work with people who use drugs every day that have a mental illness because of it
    drugs damage the brains ability to function normally and process information normally. they affect the chemical levels in the brain which lead to mental illnesses such as psychosis and schizophreniathese are very serious and if left untreated the psychotic symptoms of schizophrenia (such as paranioa, hearing voices, visual hallucinations, delusions) can become permanent and affect your quality of life. this may mean you are unable to fulfil your dreams, hold down a job, even not be able to cope with living independently. schizophrenia means having to take medications every day, sometimes having to have fortnightly injections, being locked in a psych hospital against your wishes, then being put on a community treatment order when you get discharged which means if you dont take your medication or attend scheduled appointments with doctors, nurses etc, you will be forced back into hospital, and may even be taken by police to hospital. i deal with this everyday, i see young people, lose their friends, family, girlfriends/boyfriends, unable to go to uni/college, unable to get jobs, unable to move out of home etc all because they chose to use drugs and then continued to use them once they had a psychotic episode caused by drugs.
    if this sounds scary, trust me it is, but it is also reality. you may be thinking……but i know people who use drugs and they are fine….well there is no way of telling who will be affected like this and who wont. do you really want to take the chance?
    oh and if there is a history of any mental illness in yout family, your chances are even higher of becoming mentally unwell
