Is Marijuana Destructive and Dangerous?

Marijuana operates on the brain by using a chemical called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This chemical resembles to a naturally-occurring chemical called anandamide, allowing THC to bind to the same neuroreceptors and alter how the brain normally communicates.

THC causes temporary changes in areas of the brain that control:

  • Pleasure
  • Memory recollection
  • Concentration
  • Motor skills
  • Sensory perception

Passages Rehab recognizes all chemical substances have the potential to develop into serious addictions. Marijuana addiction can be just as destructive and dangerous to an individual’s social life, mental wellbeing and personal success as other types of drug and alcohol addiction due to incessant cravings and other behavioral changes. Being addicted to marijuana can also leave a person feeling isolated and without a support system as well.

Whether these disorders are a result of being addicted to marijuana or occurred organically, your treatment team can successfully deal with them and return you to a higher quality of life.

Other long-term side effects of marijuana use include:

  • Respiratory problems – Long-term marijuana use promotes coughing, increased phlegm, a higher frequency of lung illness as well as a greater risk of lung infection.
  • Heart problems – Marijuana can raise a person’s heartrate for up to three hours after use. As such, anyone with a heart problem who smokes marijuana may be increasing their chances of a heart attack.
  • Cannabinoid Hypermesis Syndrome – A long-term side effect of marijuana where bouts of nausea, vomiting and dehydration can sometimes require hospitalization.
