Immediate effects of marijuana consumption include tremors, headache, nausea, poor coordination, breathing problems, and reduced blood flow to the brain. It can also increase the appetite ("the munchies"), leading to consumption of unhealthy amounts of food and weight gain.
Research suggests that marijuana users get into more vehicle accidents and perform worse in school and sports than non-users. The drug distorts perceptions, inhibits clear thinking, and gets in the way of memory and learning. Those who start using marijuana at an early age may find that the drug delays puberty or disrupts young women's reproductive cycles.
In addition, smoking marijuana is more damaging to the lungs than smoking tobacco, and increases the risk of cancer in the lungs, throat, and mouth.

Wow. I did not know that marijuans delayed puberty or effects the womens reproductive cycles. So that was pretty interesting.
I think this is a great article, I am 19 years old and last week I was offered some marijuana. I decided I would read up about the efects of this drug and I am glad I did not take the drug. I am horrified of what this drug could have done to me and this article has shown me what it is like. I was never taught this in school and i think all kids should be aware of the effects of these horible drugs.
Love Lizzy =D
I get the munchies all the time & I dont do that.
