I am doing a segment with Bill O’reilly on the O’reilly factor about the potential negative side effects associated with smoking marijuana. This is a good opportunity for me to share my opinion on this matter.
According to a 2012 CBS/AP poll 1 in 10 teens smoke marijuana at least 20 times a month. This is an 80% increase since the poll began in 2008. Since the youth of our country is also our future, what will happen if the use of marijuana continues to grow through legalization? As a medical doctor, I am concerned with the health effects of widespread use of marijuana.
