A nine-year-old boy from California is going viral after the boy went Live on his mom’s IG page, and then started smoking what appeared to be marijuana.
Then the nine-year-old started smoking like he’s a grown man. He’s even doing tricks with the smoke.
People all over social media are reacting to the video, and many are claiming that they contacted California child services.
So what does science have to say about the harms of children smoking marijuana? Well here’s what the Colorado Department of Health had to say:
The long-term effect of acute marijuana exposures on children is unknown, as it has not been systematically studied. Because we don’t yet have the research and science findings to know the full effects, doctors do not fully understand marijuana’s long-term effects on children after acute exposures.
The child’s mother quickly removed the video from her IG page. But it’s been saved and re-uploaded all over social media.
