Marijuana can be a tough drug to kick. It seems ultimately harmless due to the socially ubiquitous status it’s garnered over the last century as the drug of choice for folks who just want to relax. However, contrary to popular belief about the “harmlessness” of the drug, there are legitimately quantifiable risks involved with its use that are often under-discussed and glossed over. Landmark Recovery of Las Vegas offers services to help you with marijuana detox. Allow us to be your first choice in seeking some form of treatment as you make your way toward a drug-free lifestyle in recovery.
Marijuana has been immensely popular lately due to the ease by which someone can come into possession of it. In some states, including ones Landmark has treatment centers at, marijuana is recreationally legal as well as available for those with medical marijuana access. This makes marijuana universally possible to get your hands on almost anywhere.
Marijuana, while assumed harmless, presents a host of risks and negative consequences to its use over time, especially for those who smoke it over a long term. Evidence has been found in a study that that regular use of marijuana beginning in childhood (<18 years of age) leads to lowered IQ over time. According to the UN, Marijuana is the most used drug of choice worldwide, meaning that the 9% of users who develop a dependence is a surprisingly larger group than otherwise assumed. Either way, there is a non-zero risk of developing such a dependence for users of marijuana.
The effects of weed are felt because of the chemical compound THC, which causes humanly pleasurable sensations from acting as a neurotransmitter in all the right places. In other words, weed makes you feel good. Whether or not it affects you negatively when abused can depend on a host of factors.
As of 2019 in Nevada, close to 15% of adults use marijuana regularly with almost 23% of Millennials (ages 25-34) having used the drug. 9% of treatment center admissions in Nevada listed marijuana as the primary reason for checking in. 32% of Nevada residents aged 18-25 have reported marijuana use in an average month.
