Pot in your Head
Posted by Youth Outreach
While I was reading up on the effects of marijuana I came across an interesting fact. Smoking marijuana is linked to the onset of schizophrenia. I don’t know about you but schizophrenia is not something that I would want. I know that smoking pot makes you calm, relaxed, hungry but crazy. Every reference I checked from Seventeen to Teen Health report the same information.
Besides making you crazy marijuana can do a lot of harm to your body in the short-term. Drugfree.org reports “short-term effects of marijuana include problems with memory and learning, distorted perception (sights, sounds, time, touch), trouble with thinking and problem solving, loss of motor coordination, increased heart rate, and anxiety. These effects are even greater when other drugs are mixed with weed. A user may also experience dry mouth and throat.”
Think about it!
