Can weight training stunt your growth?

Patient: Can weight training stunt your growth? I’ve been training with weight for about two years and I am 16 turning 17 in may. I have a very good diet and do not take any pills or steroids. I have been doing heavier weights the past year but not over the top. I am 167cm tall and 67.5 kilograms.
