Teens and young adults today are exposed to very life changing experiences. It all starts in their very young or hanging out outside their home and or in the home. Many teens use substances or sell the substances to satisfy their needs. If a teen doesn’t have money for something they will go get it. So they find a way easy way to make some cash without going through the long process of a regular job. Because teens have school and can’t do both at the same time some either drop out of school and other go before for school or after school and on weekends. They drop out because they know they will get more money for more hours. The others stay in school because they know they can’t sell drugs forever.

The teens who are exposed to using the drugs are sometimes the buyers and the sellers. They become curious with the product and decide to try it. Once they tried it already they become more curious with the product or disappointed. Also they see their friends and family using it and it makes them wonder why they use it or someone peer pressure them to use it and fall under their footsteps and they thinks its cool and end up like their friend or family member.

Some say it releases their stress and makes them feel good and relax. Especially if they’ve suffered a lot already in life and others say it a waste of their time and they can find a alternate to make them happy that doesn’t have any thing to do with drugs and its not worth sacrificing their health and job opportunity. Suffering with life obstacles and replacing the pain with drugs doesn’t make it better because you’re suffering in another way which is drug abuse that causes a lot of side effects. So in the end your still getting abused in some type of way. Teens today need to make sure the decisions their making are the right decisions.
