I can eat the cookie and possibly get addicted or I can say no and leave the unhealthy situation.
C- Consider a Pro and Con for each Option.
If I don't eat the cookie, everyone will call me a loser and a wimp but I will have a future that is not influenced by drugs so I can do whatever I want to in life.
If I eat the cookie, everyone will think I'm cool but Mom and Dad will be super mad at me because this might prevent me from graduating.
Joe is being offered a THC infused cookie at a party.
I- Identify a Positive and Negative Influence
My parents are a good influence since I know they would not want me to not do drugs
Joe can accept the the cookie and eat it and possibly get addicted to marijuana or he can say no and leave the unhealthy situation.
D-Decide and Act
I'm all set. I've have to leave though.
Option 1- Pro: All the people at the party will think he’s cool for having marijuana. Con: Joe's parent’s would be really mad at him for possibly ruining his future. Option 2- Pro: Joe will have a future that is not influenced by drugs which means he can reach his full potential without a loss of IQ points. Con: Everyone at the party will call him a wimp and a loser for choosing not to eat the marijuana infused cookie.
E- Evaluate the Decision
This was a good decision.
A positive influence is Joe's parents who he knows would be very upset with him. A negative influence is the people at the party who are encouraging him to eat the cookie with weed in him.
The teens at the party are a bad influence since they are encouraging me to eat weed.
Joe chooses to not eat the cookie and leave the party.
I will not have an increased heartbeat which can cause a heart attack if the heartbeat increases too much. My school performance would get worse if he made the other unhealthy decision and I would not have reached my full potential otherwise because of a loss of IQ points. In marijuana edibles like the one I would have eaten, the THC takes longer to be released in my body. All those people weren’t worried about me, they just wanted to see me high.
