How does cannabis affect people negatively?

Concern by Kagome: How does cannabis affect people negatively?
I would like solutions from (who I would hope actually are) healthcare medical doctors who have examined this.

I am seeking for a checklist of motives cannabis effects individuals negatively bodily and psychologically. Googling just isnt good ample for this reply. There are so many misguided individuals and incorrect and proper solutions. All you medical professionals out there, support me out! I want someone impartial and has expertise in the health care field. Thanks so significantly!

I have in no way completed it b/c it’s silly. Folks who do drugs are weak minded & simple influenced by other people.

    Unfortunately, I am not a doctor, but I am a former drug addict. Although I do not consider marijuana to be a drug (although I understand why it is considered one), it did help me while I was struggling to detox from harder drugs. When I smoke marijuana, I feel absolutely at ease and happier than on any other drug I’ve ever been on, but it gives me a completely different train of thought, a slower thought process, and an unrealistic sense of reality while I am on it. It also affects my heart rate (makes it beat much faster, and at times, it’s beat so fast that I became paranoid that I would undergo a heart attack!), breathing, lung function (I can no longer endure the length of the workouts that I used to go for), and left me extremely fatigued and unmotivated. I have not smoked marijuana in what for me has been quite some time, and my work performance has improved, my enthusiasm and motivation has been regenerated, and I have finally overcome the depression that cannabis withdrawal left upon me in the first month or so of refraining from using it. I completely disagree with the guy Mike who answered before me, because I know plenty of great people who have used and overcome drugs and drug addiction and I do not think that that is weak minded at all. It is weak minded and stupid to judge others when you have no experience whatsoever in the matter. So again, although I am not a doctor, I have had pleasurable experiences on drugs, but nothing compares to the elation I have experienced while being sober. I know that this may not really answer your question as to how cannabis negatively affects people, but it does give insight as to how not using cannabis and other drugs positively affects people.

    Cannabis is a depressant, meaning that it slows down the central nervous system and disrupts the formation of short-term memory. Wikipedia has an entire article devoted to the “Effects of Cannabis”, which contains some solid and accurate information, and explains the effects chemically.

    The health effects if you smoke it are similar to the effects of tobacco. There is increased risk of mouth cancer, lung cancer, heart disease and bronchitis.

    In a very small minority of people, dope can trigger serious mental illness. It is best to avoid it if you have a family history of schizophrenia or similar illnesses.

    Likewise, if you smoke heavily over a long period you will feel like you are in a permanent brain fog. You could end up with serious paranoia as well.

    Some people use cannabis to relieve the symptoms of multiple sclerosis or chronic pain.

    If you look at all the studies done recently, you’ll find out that mj is NOT BAD FOR YOU in the slightest, and instead is actually GOOD FOR YOU………

    Did you know that new research shows that marijuana actually kills cancer cells… rather than creating them? It actually causes them to eat themselves in a process called “autophage”.

    Also, instead of killing brain cells, studies show it actually promotes the growth of new brain cells?

    Did you know the government knew about it in 1974?

    Did you know that the cannabinoid receptor is the most prevalent cellular receptor in our brains?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabinoid_receptor

    This mystery began to unravel in 1964, when tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the main psychoactive chemical in cannabis was isolated and synthesized by Raphael Mechoulam and colleagues in Israel. Subsequently, in 1988, Allyn Howlett and colleagues discovered the cannabinoid receptor in the brain. This receptor called CB1was a precise match for the unique chemicals called cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant (phytocannabinoids). This initial discovery led to scientists hypothesizing that humans are “wired” for cannabis. The CB1receptors have been found in the brain in areas that control the coordination of movement, emotions, memory, reduction of pain, reward systems, and reproduction, yet are almost absent in the brain stem (which affects our vital functions such as breathing). It appears that cannabinoid receptors, which modulate other neurotransmitter function in a retrograde “on demand” fashion are present in far higher concentrations in the brain than any other receptor. While the CB1 receptors are primarily found in the central nervous system, a second type, CB2, discovered in 1993, are found primarily in the immune system, GI tract, liver, spleen, kidney, bones, heart, and peripheral nervous system. In fact, the CB2 receptor appears to be up-regulated whenever there is tissue pathology.

    Did you know that the government actually has the patent on medical marijuana… for use in fighting diseases such as cancer, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease and more?

    And yet they repeatedly say that there is “no medical use” for marijuana.

    Look it up. U.S. Patent #6630507

    It’s like a MIRACLE DRUG because the endocannabinoid system in your body controls so much chemically… by stimulating this system, many positive effects can occur in many different organs of the body.

    If you don’t believe me, check out the studies at http://www.pubmed.gov … just type “cannabinoids” and “cancer” in the search bar and you’ll see the results of the HUNDREDS of studies that show that the THC in marijuana actually kills cancer cells, both in human tissue cultures and in animals. But… they won’t let us do studies on humans because mj has been labeled the “devil’s weed”. HA!

    But there is plenty of anecdotal evidence. (People who didn’t want to wait on the government to legalize medical marijuana to help with their illness. We’ve been waiting over 40 years, after all.) I have been in correspondence with the head of the biology dept at a major university in Colorado, and he’s knows people personally who have used super-concentrated cannabis oil to CURE their cancer.His own girlfriend got rid of her skin cancer completely applying cannabis oil topically. You can also find video diaries on the internet of people who have gotten rid of skin cancer using cannabis oil. Also video diaries of people who have had miraculous healing of 3rd degree burns. One video diary I found had an AIDS patient who was ingesting the oil and cut his T-cell count from over 800 to around 400 in just a few weeks.

    Rick Simpson has cured hundreds of people over the last few years and has plenty of written and videoed testimony. Google “Run from the Cure”.

    LOL @ all the fags who say they havent done it cause they say its stupid. You havent tried it so you dont know how good it is. Some people on this site are so dim

    I’m at med school, but still i just know this stuff cause i’m interested in it. THC effects receptors in the brain. The receptors normally control what impulses pass over the synapse. The THC gets into the receptors and changes what information passes over the synapses. The changes are usually increased appitite, heart rate, blood vessel dilation etc. There also some genetically related effects like phycosis which effects around 10% of smokers.

    I do weed daily, i have never had a single negative effect, weed makes everything better

    If you want more information thats actually accurate and also shut ups the idiots, The watch The Union: The business behind getting high. This documentary will let you know what you need to and also give you the facts that government doesn’t share with you.
