As a parent, we are always concerned about the well-being of our children. We watched them grow from tiny babies into enterprising and engaging young children. Inevitability, they will take their first steps as teenagers into the real world.
We would like to believe that we can trust our children to act with decorum and maturity in whatever situation they may find themselves. However, we know that peer pressure or a desire to appear “cool” to their friends may cause our children to behave in ways that are entirely out of character.
A simple mistake can occur when your child believes that they are helping out a friend or “fitting in” with their peers. This can cause them to be exposed to or handle drugs when they did not fully comprehend the consequences of their actions.
Although use of marijuana has come under less scrutiny in several states, in Georgia it remains a crime. It is illegal to buy, manufacture or sell marijuana or marijuana wax. Many teens may downplay the severity of this crime to themselves or to their friends, but if caught in possession, your teen could face a jail term or fine that may affect their educational or employment opportunities in the future.
Your teen may even face exposure to harder drugs, such as heroin, methamphetamine or even prescription medication. If this should occur, it is of vital importance that you seek legal advice at the earliest opportunity.
