Not all teenagers smoke dope

Dutch institute of mental health and addiction, Trimbos, is launching a month-long campaign warning teenagers of the risks and myths associated with using cannabis under the slogan ‘You’re not stupid if you don’t smoke dope’ (Je bent niet gek als je niet blowt’).

Trimbos said that whilst teenagers assume at least 80% of their peers smoke cannabis, the true figure is actually 20%.
