It may be that your child has experimented with marijuana use or tried it a couple of times with their friends. That happens a lot more these days than it may have happened when you were in school.

Whether or not adolescents become involved in drugs—or stay involved—may be related to their parents’ attitudes about drug use. Having a matter-of-fact, rational discussion with your child about marijuana may be the best way to approach the situation.
If you find a larger quantity of processed marijuana buds in your home, someone either has an expensive habit or they are selling weed to their friends.

Forty-four percent of all students have tried weed by 12th grade according to the National Institutes of Health.   That means that your child probably has friends who are smoking marijuana or at least know someone who is.
If you look closely at a marijuana bud, you will see the fine “hairs” and leaves that make up the bud after it is dried.
If you find plants around your home that look similar to the marijuana plant in the photo, someone in your household is trying to grow their own weed. The plants have changed considerably in recent decades as they have been bred to produce more buds.
If you see this many marijuana plants growing indoors, you have stumbled upon a major indoor marijuana grow operation. Leave the scene immediately and call 9-1-1 if it is not a legal operation.

So what do male cannabis plants look like? I know a lot of growers dread them but in some cases they can actually be surprisingly beautiful! Male pollen sacs open up and look like flowers 🙂
Sometimes when they first start growing in they look like a bunch of grapes
Cannabis plants can be male or female, but only female plants produce buds. Because of that, most growers try to identify and remove male plants as soon as possible.
