The psychological dependence ranges from a mild occasional trip to a marked compulsive use.

Marijuana is a psychoactive drug that gives users a perception of feeling good or high.

The users of the drug under its influence usually feel hungrier, temporarily lose their normal inhibitions, and become more easily sexually excited.

This article has successfully highlighted all possible negative effects. But there are scientific articles which claims cannabis to be one of the most medically useful plant in earth which can be used to treat/supplement the treatment of variety of diseases such as incurable epilepsy, cancer/tumours, CNS disorders, MS, auto-immune diseases, depression and even as a household treatment for pain. Which makes me believe this is a highly biased article propagating propaganda . Hi, doctors, double check the facts you know, pledge to give patients a better treatment when possible. Please correct me if I am wrong.
