My best friend told me she's smoked weed and I'm really worried about her going onto try more drugs. She would never do this kindof thing with me which is why she's only just told me , but I feel so protective over her because I feel like I don't know her at all anymore, because it seems like she's just doing it to fit in with her group of friends. Am I overreacting or should I be concerned? Is weed dangerous?

Its different for everyone. I used to smoke maybe 2-3 times a week in high school and I was okay. But no matter what people say it makes it somewhat easier to try other drugs. I knew there were some drugs I would never try still though like meth, heroine etc... however I did tray cocaine, various pills, and peyote. But now in college I don't do any drugs except smoking maybe once every other month or something (when I know I have nothing going on the next day with school or work) and drink occasionally but nothing else. Its not something to be really worried about unless they start excessively using, or need to smoke to function in school, work etc. Then I would start to worry. Some of my friends were very caught up in marijuana and now smoke 3-4 times daily, and work and gas stations and fast food restaurants with no indication of leaving, and yet want handouts and money for jobs they don't do! Its a slippery slope... From your story don't worry :) just some mild experimentation.1
