Psychological Effects - Cannabis

Cannabis has a wide range of cognitive, behavioral, and physiological effects on the users and they usually vary from user to user.

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

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

i am from Australia and i want the tablet name in Australia is SIVOLDI FOR hepatitis C patient . i want the same pill in generic,84 pill. i want in Chennai ,if any body send me email or phone or add of place that i got these tablet.

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.
