Thanks for contacting us here at TEEN LINE. It sound's like you're feeling really surprised and upset because of your friend's drug use at such a young age. Here at TEEN LINE, we don't judge or bias anyone; however, marijuana is illegal at any age. I'm really glad that you seem so concerned about your friend and his usage. Marijuana can disrupt your friend's physical and even emotional development, and even affect his relationships with his friends and family, as it seems to have already affected you. Marijuana can be a gateway drug, and could even lead to future addictions. If you wanna discuss this further, I encourage you or your friend to call us here at TEEN LINE. If you're in California, our number is 1-800-852-8336. If you are in the U.S or Canada, 310-855-4673. If you're out of the country, visit www.befrienders.org
