Marijuana Facts and Patterns

According to the website for the National Institute on Drug Abuse, " Marijuana is the most commonly abused illicit drug in the United States." It is a common part of addiction recovery lexicon to refer to marijuana as the "gateway drug." Most people who indulge in regular marijuana use end up abusing other, often more dangerous drugs, such as heroine, crack, cocaine and, of course, alcohol.

Marijuana negatively affects the brain, heart, lungs and, often the entire immune system. Depression and even anxiety are prevalent with use. If you feel that you have a problem with marijuana, you should attempt cease use immediately. If you suffer symptoms, such as inability to sleep, heightened anxiety/irritability, or even increased feelings of aggression, you should consult a doctor immediately for further support for your chemical dependency on marijuana.
