Marijuana

Marijuana is usually smoked using cigarette rolling papers, a purchased water bong, or a makeshift bong that can be made from a variety of items. Hash can be smoked or eaten, and is sometimes cooked into baked goods.

What to Look for:

Dilated (large) pupils
Cigarette rolling papers
Seeds that have been cleaned from marijuana
Smell on clothing, in room, or in car
Bloodshot eyes
Sleepy appearance
Reduced motivation
Pipes, bongs, homemade smoking devices (you may see sticky residue from burned marijuana)

Generally it can be difficult to recognize marijuana use if you don’t see your child after smoking when they are still experiencing the effects of the drug. The potency of marijuana has increased exponentially in the past 20 years.
