WeedWeed, also known as cannabis and marijuana, was originally intended for use as a psychoactive drug and as medicine.  It is used primarily today as a recreational drug.  This is the most popular, easily accessible, and widely used illicit drug in the world.  It has psychoactive and physiological effects when consumed.  The most notable effect from smoking it is an alteration of the user’s mood.  Other short-term effects include increased heart rate, lowered blood pressure, impairment of short-term memory and concentration.

Weed Use As Medicine

Marijuana has been used medically with several well-documented factors.  It has been known to stop nausea and vomiting.  It stimulates hunger in chemotherapy and AIDS patients.  It is also known to lower pressures in glaucoma patients.  In the United States, 14 states  have legalized weed for medical use.  However, it is still illegal in the balance of the states in the United States.  Simple possession is usually fined as law enforcement focuses more on those who traffic it on the black market.

A Gateway Drug and Possible Addiction

Weed is thought to be a gateway drug.  Many specialists feel that use of marijuana leads to more damaging drug use.  However, this has not been proven.  Many feel that if teens start using it, they will be influenced by friends who also use other more potent and dangerous illegal drugs.
