"It rewires their brain so they think they need that drug...and the younger you start, the more likely you are to become addicted to alcohol, to marijuana, to nicotine, to all of those things. And the manufacturers know this." -- JOY SWEENEY, Council for Drug Free Youth, on the effects of experimentation at a young age. January 2, 2019
