Nelroy Giddings Arrest

Babyboomer parents and grandparents often wonder how it is possible that their kids may suffer grave consequences from smoking pot when they themselves turned out just fine. Legal troubles aside, researchers have found plenty of new evidence that Marijuana’s health risks haven been vastly underestimated by the users of yesteryear.

Pot also packs a bigger wallop now than it did in the ’70s. Marijuana has become more potent exposing users to much higher levels of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. The brain’s functioning is greatly impacted by increasing impact of THC on its metabolism.

Using modern brain imaging, scientists have found that vital brain activities decline with the consumption of Marijuana, and the data shows that the effects are long-lasting – if damages can be reversed is largely unknown. Another big unknown is how a person’s genes and environment may cause the development of psychiatric disorders. Some studies have concluded that people with a certain gene variant are several times more likely to develop schizophrenia after repeated Marijuana consumption.

However, there are also voices of caution among Marijuana researchers that findings of those studies cannot be applied to the public at large. Igor Grant, director of the Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research at the University of California doesn’t believe there is any compelling evidence that people develop more psychiatric problems, anxiety, depression, or even psychosis as a result of marijuana use. He says that if there was such a causal effect, the surge of the drug’s popularity in the ’60s and ’70s should have seen a distinct increase in cases of schizophrenia – which is apparently not the case.

Whichever way you choose to look at it, the statistics give good reason to be cautious: A recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health found that among marijuana users over age 12, almost 35 percent used marijuana 20 or more days in the past month.

A Little Pot Never Hurt Anyone…Before. Today’s Marijuana is Different!

We now know conclusively that marijuana is addictive, and that the withdrawal symptoms of heavy marijuana usage can be very unpleasant. Marijuana use needs to be taken seriously, and marijuana addicts will often need professional treatment. Marijuana is no longer the relatively harmless drug it is perceived to be. Whether any drug is ever harmless is open to debate, but since a third of adults in America have tried marijuana, and the vast majority of these adults never grew addicted, nor ever had any problems with it, most people don’t consider it to be a very frightening substance.

But today’s marijuana bears little resemblance to what many of us may have had. No longer an innocuous weed, today’s marijuana is heavily laden with white crystals of THC, and in fact the potency of today’s common marijuana is many times stronger than even the strongest pot of a decade or more ago. With increasing strengths, also comes increasing problems, and while it used to be argued that marijuana wasn’t addictive, medical professionals can now conclusively state that it is.

Regular marijuana use causes both a development of a tolerance to the effects of the drug, and as well causes physical withdrawal symptoms when usage is stopped. Withdrawal symptoms can include anxiety, insomnia, a loss of appetite and even aggression, basically the opposite and negative symptoms to the intoxicating effects of the drug.

People developing an addiction to marijuana will progress in their behaviors comparably to other drug addictions. There will be an increasing fixation on marijuana, on getting, paying for and smoking the drug. There will be a dramatic development of tolerance to the effects of the drug, there may be changes in behavior and users will feel a need to smoke the drug at regular intervals. When they try to stop using, they will feel withdrawal effects, and this can make cessation problematic.

Most people, who use the drug occasionally will not get addicted, but the risk of addiction for regular users is high; and an addiction to marijuana can have similar social consequences as an addiction to other drugs. There is a cognitive deficit, and memory loss is common, and work or school performance will often suffer as usage of the drug increases. Frequent and excessive marijuana use is not to be taken lightly, and the long term consequences of this usage can be quite severe. Users who have developed a physical and psychological addiction to the drug will often need professional treatment and long term support and care to be able to quit using for good.

If a loved one is suffering from a marijuana addiction, it needs to be taken seriously, and that person needs access to professional help to allow them to quit using for good. What always starts out as recreational can too often turn tragic, and an addiction to any drug is never enjoyable. Today’s pot is not what it was, and it needs to be taken seriously.
