MARIJUANA...

  • How does marijuana affect driving ability? Driving experiments show that marijuana affects a wide range of skills needed for safe driving. For example, both thinking and reflexes are slowed when undder the influence of marijuana, making it hard for drivers to respond to sudden, unexpected events. Also, a driver's ability to "track" (stay in their lane) through curves, or to brake quickly, and to maintain speed and the proper distance between vehicles is affected. Research shows that these skills are impaired for at least 4-6 hours after smoking a single marijuana cigarette, long after the "high" is gone. If a person drinks alcohol, along with using marijuana, the risk of an accident greatly increases. Marijuana presents a definite danger on the road.

  • Does marijuana affect the human reproductive system? Research studies suggest that the use of marijuana during pregnancy may result in premature babies and/or babies with low birth weights. Studies of men and women have shown that some may have a temporary loss of fertility. These findings suggest that marijuana may be especially harmful during adolescence, a period of rapid physical and sexual development. http://www.quit4good.com/smoking_pregnancy.html

  • How does marijuana affect the heart? Marijuana increases the heart rate as much as 50 percent, depending on the amount of THC which enters the blood stream. It can cause chest pain in people who have a poor blood supply to the heart - and it produces these effects more rapidly than tobacco smoke does.

  • How does marijuana affect the lungs? Scientists believe that marijuana can be especially harmful to the lungs because users often inhale unfiltered smoke deeply and hold it in their lungs as long as possible. Therefore, the smoke is in contact with lung tissues for longer periods of time, which irritates the lungs and damages the way they work. Marijuana smoke contains some of the same ingredients in tobacco smoke that can cause emphysema and cancer. In addition, many marijuana users also smoke cigarettes; the combined effects of smoking these two substances creates an increased health risk. http://www.quit4good.com/facts.html

  • Can marijuana cause cancer? Marijuana smoke has been found to contain more cancer-causing agents than is found in tobacco smoke. Examination of human lung tissue which has been exposed to marijuana smoke over a long period of time in a laboratory showed cellular changes called metaplasia that are considered precancerous. In laboratory tests, the tars from marijuana smoke have produced tumors when applied to animal skin. These studies suggest that it is likely that marijuana may cause cancer if used for a number of years.

  • What is marijuana "burnout"? "Burnout" is a term first used by marijuana smokers themselves to describe the effect of prolonged use. Young people who smoke marijuana heavily over long periods of time can become dull, slow moving, and inattentive. These "burned-out" users are sometimes so unaware of their surroundings that they do not respond when friends speak to them, and they do not even realize they have a problem.
