“I want you to know you were right. You told me marijuana would hurt my brain. It’s ruined my mind and my life, and I’m sorry. I love you.” — Johnny Stack to his mother, 3 days before he died by suicide.
Johnny Stack was born on February 7, 2000 and died by suicide on November 20, 2019 at the age of 19.

Is your teen using marijuana? Are you seeing changes in behavior, emotions, or psychological issues? Do not believe the false narrative out there that teen marijuana use is “natural, safe, and harmless.” Early teen use, combined with frequent, high-potency marijuana use is a recipe for mental illness in later adulthood. Developing minds and THC do not mix. There is NO safe level of THC in the developing adolescent mind! It does not help teen stress, anxiety, or depression. Don’t believe your teen when he or she says, “Everyone is using it.” According to national data, 7 out of 10 high school seniors do not use marijuana. Get help for your teen here.
#StopDabbing – What is a Dab?
Dabs are marijuana extracts (shatter, wax, budder are some examples) made by pouring a solvent such as butane, ethanol, propane, or carbon dioxide over marijuana, which allows THC to leave the plant material and dissolve into the solvent. This concentrated THC solution is then filtered and placed in a tray. The result of the extraction is sticky oil that typically appears bronze in color. It’s not a plant and is highly potent, containing up to 99% THC. Dabs are typically heated on a hot surface and the vapors are inhaled through a dab rig or dab pen.
“To me, altruism means being selfless or giving to other people, even when there may be nothing to gain and something to lose. Altruistic people do things for the collective interest instead of their own.” — Johnny Stack
