More Teenagers Are Coming to School High on Drugs

From a New York Times story by Ashley Southall headlined “More and More Teenagers Are Coming to School High, N.Y.C. Teachers Say”:

Ever since Justin, a 15-year-old high school freshman, tried marijuana on his birthday two years ago, he has smoked almost every day, several times a day, he said.

“If I smoke a blunt, after that blunt I’m going to be chill,” he said on a recent morning at a corner deli near his school, the Bronx Design and Construction Academy. “I’m not going to be stressing about nothing at all.”
