It is not uncommon for people to smoke these days but what is totally worrisome is how youngsters are completely unaware about the possible side-effects of smoking marijuana (weed) regularly. If you among those who pride themselves on being a pothead by smoking marijuana you are putting yourself at the risk of the below listed consequences in the long run.
Below are 4 reasons why you should stop smoking weed.
“Those who have been smoking marijuana throughout their adolescent years have been observed to suffer from a cognitive decline over the years which can directly affect their memory”.
“Since long term cannabis use has been associated with poorer memory in adults, your habit of smoking weed can also affect your academic life, studies have found that abusing marijuana can result in failure to learn in school and you need to focus on detoxing your mind and body from Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) as it is the active compound in marijuana that gives users the high they crave”.
“If you thought marijuana isn’t addictive, think again, studies have found that 90% of marijuana users get addicted to the drug and end up smoking it daily”.
“Most people smoke weed because they claim it makes them feel more relaxed and less anxious, however, what many of them fail to realise is that regular usage of marijuana can actually result in depression and anxiety and this side-effect of smoking marijuana applies only for people who are already prone to mental illnesses like depression and anxiety”.
