Pot. Grass. Weed. Marijuana. It all means the same thing. You smoke it and you get high. Maybe you smoke it because it’s the “in” thing, and you want to be “with it”. Maybe you’re rebelling against your parents, or maybe you’re just looking for kicks. Whatever the reason, ask yourself this: Is it worth the risk?
All the facts aren’t in on marijuana, but here’s one that is: A recent study at Duke University shows that a prolonged use of marijuana can result in a permanent loss of hearing. So, the next time someone hands you a joint, maybe you won’t just get stoned. Maybe you’ll get stoned…deaf.
