In a survey of more than 216,000 teens, results indicated that marijuana use is drastically falling. Along with this, the number of pot-related problems is going down with it. It’s possible that this is just one of the many positive effects of legalization but maybe kids these days have certain distractions to curb their drug appetite. VR porn might be the culprit.

MORE MARIJUANA LESS PROBLEMS

A wise prophet once said “mo’ money, mo’ problems.” That phrase turns out to be rather interchangeable suggesting the more one has of  anything, the more conflict it creates. An outlier to this theory is medical marijuana. Opposers thought that an increase in legal marijuana would lead to in influx in drug use among adolescents and adults.  They got half of that right. Despite numerous states legalizing and decriminalizing pot, use by young people is falling at record rates while the number of adults using the drug has increased.

THE FACTS DON’T LIE

Scientists at Washington University studied data on drug use from teens aged 12-17 over a 12-year span. What they found was that the number of teens who had marijuana-related problems declined by 24 percent from 2002 to 2013. Over that same period, kids have been found smoking less dope than their peers. The rate fell by 10 percent. That’s one tenth of a hundred percent for all you numerically challenged. Fighting, crime, and drug deals are falling but it’s unsure why. Perhaps it’s increased drug education or just the overall taboo of the reefer disappearing, but there’s another theory. VR porn is distracting America’s youth from drugs.

VR PORN: AMERICA’S NEW ADDICTION

Back in the day a nice bong rip sure beat the heck out of dad’s VHS porn collection. There wasn’t all this cool tech to entertain ten youth of America, just some nice dope, and Led Zeppelin IV. Judging by kids now, they probably find marijuana boring and who can really blame them? We are in an age where the firmness of virtual tits can be customized. VR porn is new and way more arousing than watching Cheech and Chong for the 3rd time in a row. Drug use in teens is declining because they’ve simply swapped out one addiction for another. VR porn is what everyone will be talking about in the locker room someday. Teens will sneak out of class to take part in virtual orgy’s, not get high. With dope legal now, it’s just another thing to buy at the store. The future will be one full of virtual pornography. As far as the negative effect of that addiction, well, society will have to wait and see.
