Ollie Birt's insight:

This is a very concerning article that bullying can boost drug use in teen girls. bullying can cause depression, loneliness, anxiety and suicide. Some teenage girls feel as if drugs can help take of the stress and depression that bullying brings.This is a VERY BAD IDEA and if anyone is being bullied they should not resort in drugs. If you need help seek guidance from a councillor or call the Kids Help Line.
