To write my essay on Marijuana, I need to know what it is. Marijuana also know as Marihuana is prepared from the Cannabis plant intended for use as a psychoactive drug. The word marijuana comes from the Mexican Spanish word, marihuana. Marijuana is a mixture of the dried and shredded leaves, stems, seeds, and flowers of the cannabis sativa plant. The mixture can be green, brown, or green in color.
Marijuana has a chemical in it called delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, better known as THC. A lot of other chemicals are found in marijuana, too—about 400 of them, many of which could affect your health. But THC is the main psychoactive (i.e., mind altering) ingredient. Scientists have learned a great deal about how THC acts in the brain to produce its many effects. When someone smokes marijuana, THC rapidly passes from the lungs into the bloodstream, which carries the chemical to the brain and other organs throughout the body. THC acts upon specific sites in the brain, called cannabinoid receptors. marijuana intoxication can cause distorted perceptions, impaired coordination, difficulty with thinking and problem solving, and problems with learning and memory. Research has shown that, in chronic users, marijuana’s adverse impact on learning and memory can last for days or weeks after the acute effects of the drug. Marijuana also causes increase in the heart rate by 20 to 50 times more than normal. Long term of use of Marijuana results into addiction which might cause irritability, sleeplessness, decreased appetite, anxiety, and drug craving.
Use of Marijuana may result in mental illnesses – including addiction – stemming from genetic or environmental vulnerabilities. Research shows that use of Marijuana has been increased in teens which will surely effect our coming generation.
