You might not know which drugs your teenagers have tried, but San Francisco-based clinical psychologist Dr. Danielle Ramo can certainly make an educated guess.

Ramo is an adjunct professor at UC San Francisco and has been immersed in the issue of teenage drug use in the Bay Area for the past 20 years, talking and meeting with hundreds of parents and kids.

She's often invited to present on the dangers of drugs, and last year she gave a talk titled "The Wild West: Cannabis, vaping, and other substance abuse among teens in the modern world" to an auditorium packed with thousands of local parents and students at Lowell High School.
