Cannabis use amongst middle aged and senior citizens is rising. Conversely, nearly every teenager has access to a smartphone these days. The result here is a perfect storm. One that will catch parents red-handed smoking dope on Snapchat.
PARENTS ARE SMOKING MORE CANNABIS; TEENAGERS ADDICTED TO SNAPCHAT
2016 is a weird time. Donald Trump is successfully running for president, North Korea is banning sarcasm and parents are smoking more cannabis than their children. According to a new study by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, parents in the U.S are more likely than ever to smoke weed regularly than their teenage children. If anyone needs a definition of irony, this is it. Just 7.4 percent of teenage Americans smoked pot regularly in 2014. This is a 10 percent decrease from 2002. So where is their attention going? Snapchat has something to do with it.
SNAPCHAT IS FOR TEENS WHILE SMOKING CANNABIS IS FOR ADULTS
Business Insider recently released a study on the average teenager in 2016. With a sample group of 60, they researched what these kids do every day. Out of 60, 100% all owned smartphones. In fact, most of them have had one since the age of 11. When asked what their favorite app was, Snapchat won by a landslide. It’s nearly surpassed texting as their premier way of communication. Soon, it will be embarrassing parents everywhere as their cannabis smoking shenanigans go viral.
SNAPCHAT WILL IMPRISON PARENTS FOR SMOKING CANNABIS
While many states are starting to legalize pot, it’s still illegal under U.S. Federal law. Now that teenager isn’t getting high, they will become more productive with their smartphones. Meanwhile, their parents are using more pot at an increasing rate. Soon, viral videos will explode on the internet with teens catching their parents deep in couch lock or passed out on a pile of Cheetos. While this is all fun and games, who knows what the NSA will think? Will these adults face criminal actions for their recreational behaviors? Perhaps this generation of teenagers will grow up without parents due to their technological shenanigans.
