    Hey dudes. I'm 14 and like 6'2" and I'm wondering if weed stunts your growth. If anyone says yes, please provide some evidence. And if anyone says no please suppost it with evidence. Thanks.

    yes it does. you can do your own research. it doesnt have to do with how tall you are dude. physical development prolonging puberty and slowing it down. shit like that man. if used at young ages

    I have never heard of weed stunting your growth.

    And I don't see how it could.

    I sure hope it doesn't.

    Yeah it's true, if you smoke pot heavily at a young age it stunts your puberty and growth I think, the weed affects your developmental part of the brain.

    I have friends who started smoking at a young age and they still look like they're 13, even though they're like 20, 21 years old. It's funny, they try to grow facial hair to compensate and it looks like chin pubes, because the weed slows down the facial hair scene as well.

    I started smoking constantly at age 18, and I haven't changed a bit since then.

    So yeah if you start smoking at a young age, you're gonna look young when you're older.

    Well I'm 14 and 6'2" like I said, I think I'm taller now but anyway. I shave like once or twice a week so yeah. The only possibility of it stunting your growth on the net is that it can mess with you frontal lobe which controls puberty and growth and development. But I matured earlier than most people but yeah.

    The only sources portraying that marijuana actually stunts growth is the AADAC programs and shit. 80% of statistics are B-S including this one. Statistics can be manipulated to show whatever the person who is making it wants it to show. The goverment comes up with half this stuff anyway to discourage drug use among minors. But from the information sheets on drugs that are not arguing for eaither side, the only drug proven to stunt growth is alchohol binge drinking at a young age and steroids. They both can cause certain testosterones to stop being 'manufactured' within the brain and CAN slow puberty and not enable someone to reach their maximum height.
