Effects On Marijuana

Say No To Drugs

Symptoms Of Smoking Weed

Smoking weed causes you to have hallucinations (see things that aren't really there) , disorientation (trouble in remembering, paying attention and making decisions) , Impaired memory (causes your thinking speed, and other cognitive abilities to get worse over time) and Delusions (false beliefs even when direct evidence is given).

THC The Chemical That Gives You The "High"

THC messes with brain areas called the cerebellum and basal ganglia, which regulate balance, posture, coordination, and your reaction time. When these brain areas are disturbed, the smoker has a harder time walking and talking correctly, making them quite clumsy. It also effects their ability to drive.


Sleep Or Weed ?

There are five stages of sleep, which get progressively deeper as the night goes on. The first four stages are called rapid eye movement, or REM. THC, the main active chemical in marijuana, has been shown to interrupt the later stages of REM sleep, the point during the night that is most crucial to making the body feel re-energized when you wake up.


Red Eyes

The traditional red eyes of a marijuana user come from blood vessels expanding in the eye.
