    Here are some good ones -

    Runaways (2004): Runaways is Steve Moore's (Austin O'Brien) story. He's sixteen and lives with his younger sister, mother Cheryl and her boyfriend John, in a modest house in Bakersfield, California. An abusive and often intoxicated man, John rules the household, and though his attacks on Steve result in emergency hospital visits, Cheryl's loyalty is to her boyfriend.

    BYE BYE LOVE: Donny, Dave and Vic are best friends. They have everything in common ... ex-wives, new girlfriends, and the kids for the weekend. This is a story about the breakup of the family. In particular, it focuses on the lifestyle of three divorced men in a small town. Stars Matthew Modine, Randy Quaid and Paul Reiser.

    THIRTEEN: At the edge of adolescence, Tracy is a smart straight-A student--if not a little naive (it seems...she smokes and she cuts to alleviate the emotional pain she suffers from having a broken home and hating her mom's boyfriend, Brady.) When she befriends Evie, the most popular and beautiful girl in school, Evie leads Tracy down a path of sex, drugs and petty crime (like stealing money from purses and from stores).

    A WALK TO REMEMBER: Shane West and Mandy Moore star. The story of two North Carolina teens, Landon Carter (West) and Jamie Sullivan (Moore), who are thrown together after Landon gets into trouble and is made to do community service.

    MYSTIC PIZZA: Three teenage girls come of age while working at a pizza parlor in Mystic Connecticut.

    THE MAN IN THE MOON: Rural Louisiana, summer of 1957, Elvis is King. At 14, Dani is coming of age. Her older sister is beautiful, smart, and off to Duke in the fall; her mom's pregnant with number four (dad wants a son), and dad's pretty strict. Life gets sweeter when 17-year old Court Foster, his widowed mom, and little brothers move into the vacant farm next door.

    WHERE THE HEART IS: A pregnant 17-year-old rebuilds her life after being abandoned by her boyfriend at a Wal-Mart in Sequoyah, Oklahoma. Natalie Portman, Ashley Judd, Stockard Channing and Joan Cusak.

    THE SANDLOT: Scotty Smalls moves to a new neighborhood with his mom and stepdad, and wants to learn to play baseball. The neighborhood baseball guru Rodriquez takes Smalls under his wing, and soon he's part of the local baseball buddies. They fall into adventures involving baseball, treehouse sleep-ins, the desirous lifeguard at the local pool, the snooty rival ball team, and the travelling fair.

    NOW AND THEN: Four 12-year-old girls grow up together during an eventful small-town summer in 1970.

    Whether I believe weed is bad for your health or not is not really important but I must say that you should not ever approach it. Weed alters your mind, if you don't like being in no control of yourself, don't do weed, no matter what others say or do. You always benefit from being different in the sense that you can see things from a different perspective, therefore you become wiser. If you do use drugs, you show that you are weak, or don't care. You show that you are slob. If you don't want to be a weak slob, you won't get into peer pressure and you won't do it. I'm not sure if this answers your question or not, but I hope it helps. And I know just how you feel, I'm a teen too. But I know better than to even doubt the damage drugs can do to me. I rather keep a clean, and controlable mind. :3

    Weed has no proven long term effects. As for your growth, it's probably just a growth spurt, they come often in teen years.
