What is Marijuana?

Marijuana is an extremely potent drug that can have some serious negative physical and emotional effects on the user. These harmful effects of marijuana include:

  • Increased heart beat and blood pressure
  • Feeling feverish accompanied by tremors
  • Feeling disoriented and losing concentration
  • Lack of physical coordination
  • Feeling depressed and drowsy
  • Suffering from panic attacks and anxiety

Apart from these effects, marijuana keeps on making the user suffer even when he/she stops taking the drug for a long duration as THS which is an active ingredient in cannabis still remains in the body for weeks or even longer. Marijuana smoke is more dangerous than tobacco in causing cancer as its smoke contains 50% to 70% more cancer causing substance. Long time marijuana abuse can also cause brain abnormalities and even a small amount of this drug is enough to cause temporary sterility in men. Moreover, it also effects the menstrual cycle of women and prenatal use of marijuana can end up in birth defects like mental abnormalities as well as risk of leukemia in children.

Marijuana and Drug Abuse

When the person starts taking the drug regularly, the body develops a high tolerance which means he starts consuming higher and stronger doses of marijuana to achieve the same high. The user may also turn to more dangerous drugs than marijuana like Heroin, Crystal Meth or Cocaine when the feeling of high that results in consumption of this drug starts to fade.

Marijuana Rehab
