MEDICAL VERSUS RECREATIONAL USE
Solid research on medical marijuana’s effects in children and teens is lacking, although some studies have suggested it may benefit kids with hardto-treat seizures. The report says other potential benefits, doses and effects are mostly unknown. Recreational use is illegal for those under age 21 even in states that allow adult use. Parents should avoid using marijuana in front of their kids and should keep all marijuana products stored out of kids’ sight, the academy says.
