Do You Know Someone Suffering From The Effects Of Marijuana?

Effects of MarijuanaMarijuana effects many aspects of the body. Some common side effects that people experience when taking the drug are rapid heart rate, dry mouth and red eyes. These physical side effects can become a problem if they last for too long. Other physical side effects of marijuana are increased hunger and slowed reaction and motor skills. Having slowed reactions is where most people notice problems. They are not able to react under pressure and this can cause serious problems to occur.

Mental effects of marijuana go hand-in-hand with the physical ones. Rapid heart rate and slowed reaction can lead to paranoia. This is one of the most common effects. Other mental effects include anxiety, depression, short-term memory loss and loss of time. Since the body is reacting slower, you will feel like the time is going by a lot more quickly than it really is.
