A few months ago, this article was sent to LCAT from Lisa Lee, a parent in the Lodi community.  The article is titled, "Turns Out Teens Know Smoking Kills, but They Don't Know Jack About Weed."  A recent survey pointed out that "teens get that tobacco is bad, but they don't feel the same about pot."  Teens may not know the risks of using marijuana and that it can hurt their learning and memory.  Read this interesting article to find out more about teens' perception of marijuana.
