Drug abuse. Has sweet smell instantly gone. Marijuana?

My 14 year old admitted drug use. Not sure how severe. She has increased acne, very irratable and angry.severe mood swings, and most nights at around 3 am, I can smell (just for a quick second) a weird smell... Sweet, but not strong smell.. Instantly gone and can not smell in her room. We are seeking help and have an appointment set up... The quick sweet smell (don't think it's marijuana) has me concerned. Appointment is over a week away.
Thanks but I have free information from our insurance provider 24/7.... Will call them

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Dec 2014
Welcome to HCM

Irritability, anger outbursts, mood swings may occur due to a number of psychoactive drugs like Cannabis (marijuana) or amphetamines. Both drugs are commonly used by teens and youngsters. Acne increase may be due to hormonal change. Marijuana may cause slight fruity smell also. Best way to know the type of drug used is to talk to her and counsel her about the adverse effects of drug. Consult a Psychiatrist if needed.

Hope it helps you, thanks
