Marijuana is perceived by some teens to be the only available alternative when experiencing difficult health problems when medical treatments have failed or when they lack access to appropriate health care. Teens claim Marijuana use can build their happiness during a depressive episode, calm their anxiety, restore their appetite after years of anorexia and even help them get some rest after fighting nights full tossing and turning. For some, medical options were not available in part because "nobody wanted to listen" to them. As a last resort, these teens had opted to try smoking marijuana. In a relatively short time, marijuana helped them to feel better about themselves, happier and more like the person they "wanted to be".“ It has and always will be the only thing that has helped me

I regret everything that I did and now know that my decision was very wrong and could have harmed the ones I cared about the most.

I put my friends and family in danger because it was my first time and I didnt know what was going to happen or how my body would react to it. The main reason for why I did this drug is because I was curious and wanted to try something new. I know now that this decisions was very irresponsible and dumb.

We started our relationship already having issues with trust. She was basing her trust in our relationship compared to her lack of trust in her previous relationships. Even though we had various unbalanced degrees of knowledge, interdependence, caring, responsiveness, mutuality and commitment, it still wasn’t enough to carry or make up for the trust component. Our text mentions, “ None of these components is absolutely required for intimacy to occur and each may exist when the other are absent.” (p. 3) This statement was true for me because we had very intimate moments and even long periods in our relationship, however like you said, it all catches up to the relationship. The challenge for me was that she did feel unworthy and have self-doubt even though I had done nothing to make her not trust me. It all had to do with the insecurities of her previous relationships. This is when my disagreements overlap with my agreements, which makes the first two chapters so interesting for me. I am excited to learn more and not only learn so much more about relationships but also have an understand of why things happened the way they did. My disagreement is at what point is the individual who is feeling unworthy, doubt, unwanted, not heard or cared for is taking responsibility for what they are feeling or creating in their head. This does not mean that I do not think what they are feeling is not valid. What we feel
In a few states including Maine has passed a law making the use of recreational marijuana acceptable. Although marijuana is legal in Maine the use of marijuana is still federally illegal. There already seems like there could be trouble, right? Well this is only one of many problems resulting from the “Yes” vote for the marijuana referendum. Police are servilely impacted when something is legal from a state law but the federal government say it is still not acceptable.

The health benefits of cannabis were a primary factor in the users’ decisions to live a lifestyle involving regular cannabis use. It was found that the subjects believed the most harmful part of marijuana use was the risk of getting caught by law enforcement, not anything regarding the drug’s composition. Cannabis was generally seen as safer than tobacco and alcohol. In regards to relationships, it was found that the subjects’ parents were those most likely to not know of the cannabis use, sexual partners were always aware of the drug use, and parents were more likely to not want to tell their kids about personal drug use than the non-parents’ “hypothetical
However after I discovered marijuana I found that smoking weed allowed me to view myself and look at things from a different perspective. The person that I used to before doesn't involve the person I am today. There's days where I’m trying to solve a problem or just think about life in general, weed gets me of my own head and lets me view the world differently. It allows me to see the beauty in even the most significant things in life, and it gives me a physical sensation that, to put it simply, feels great. Above all, it makes me happy. Marijuana has inspired me to do positives things in life as well. Weed isn't bad it's just the way you use it. In some cases marijuana isn't for
Ever since I could remember, when I get upset with someone who does me wrong, I completely cut them off without forgiveness. However, I decided to forgive a friend who was irritating and bothersome. When I was with this person I would have thought of “This person is a jerk” and “She’s so rude”. I suppose she acted this way because she is the only child, therefore she does not know how to treat other people. In addition, she is in an environment that is similar to the way she behaves, thus, she knows no better way to conduct herself.

Moving forward I
