Marijuana has Long-term Effects on the Brains of Adolescents

Dr. Simon Says Science

(from wikipedia.org) (from wikipedia.org)

After alcohol, marijuana is the most widely used illegal drug in the United States (I mean seriously, who hasn’t smoked up at least once? According to Pew Research Center, half of the country) But pot laws are rapidly changing in many parts of the country and soon it may be as ubiquitous as alcohol. Four states in the US have legalized marijuana for recreational use and 23 total states have some form of legal marijuana use (including D.C.). While the health effects of alcohol have been well studied and are significant (some 88,000 deaths/year, the third highest cause of preventable death in the US, according to the CDC and NIAAA), little is known how this shifting trend in marijuana use will affect the country. Another important trend is the amount of THC (Δ-9-tetrohydrocannabinol, the chemical that is primarily responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana) in…

Addiction is deadly . One day you don’t care about something and the next your whole life is ruined because you can’t go without it .

And no matter what or who you ruin , you will do whatever it takes to get your hands on it again .

You walk around like a robot , that substance is controling the way you act , talk , and even think . You’ll steal from anyone , and you don’t care about anyone but yourself . Most of the time you think people owe you something , and your never in the wrong . And you have no care in the world for the people you have hurt for this addiction…

FEEL LIKE I’M SLIPPING

I have was reading a post from another blogger and he suggested recycling older posts. Now I have done this in the past but I do not make a regular habit of it. I have been writing my blog for a little over 4 years now and I have plenty of old posts to recycle.

I will be sharing older posts at least 1 or 2 a week. I always read them myself because it allows me to see how much I have grown over the years. But I will now be sharing them for those who do not look into the archives.

So I have decided to share with you my old posts from this day February 5th 2011.

As always I appreciate all of my readers who support and encourage me in my journey. Thank you for allowing me to share.
