MARIJUANA ABUSE

Not A “Harmless” Drug

The perception of marijuana has shifted dramatically in recent decades. While it’s true that its dangers and risks may have been greatly exaggerated during an overtly alarmist period in our nation’s history, marijuana should never be mistaken as a benign or harmless substance. The most commonly abused controlled substance, marijuana abuse often precedes other, more serious, forms of substance abuse like cocaine, methamphetamine or even heroin addiction. While marijuana is a viable and increasingly utilized resource in the treatment of various medical conditions, it still contains mind-altering substances that can significantly compromise a user’s judgment and cause them to engage in behavior that can be dangerous to themselves or others.

Dangers of Marijuana Abuse

Marijuana abuse can create many physical and psychological dangers, which will increase with the scope and duration of abuse. Some of the immediate dangers of marijuana abuse include:

  • Dramatic changes in mood
  • Impaired body movement
  • Impaired Cognitive Ability
  • Impaired memory
  • Respiratory problems
  • Increased heart rate
  • Hallucinations
  • Impaired decision-making
  • Increased risk-taking

If you or your someone you care about is finding it increasingly difficult to curtail your marijuana abuse, it may be necessary to seek help from an experienced and qualified substance abuse treatment provider.
