I just wanted to thank you for what you are doing and I’m so sorry for the loss of your son. Our 17 year old, J., started vaping marijuana at the age of 15. He has been hospitalized with suicidal thoughts and severe self harm twice, and severe paranoia. He spent a year at a therapeutic boarding school, was home for 4 months and is now back at a long term residential treatment center. He has been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. It has been hell. Most people don’t think you can get addicted to marijuana but you can to this stuff and it changes adolescents brain chemistry. We have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on his care and I don’t know what his future holds. I have had to accept the fact that he may take his life one day and I can’t do anything about it.
