Some call it the demon weed some call it just plane fun well here is the official statistics on the plant known as Marijuana. For starters well go with the healthy part of the plant. ManyEducational and or other health videos in school have you believe that marijuana is going to ruin your life and leave you brain dead, but there has been no known proof that it has had any long-term brain damage to the human brain. The only damage suggested by the American medical association (AMA) is that it effects the short-term memory and they only believe your memory will be affected as long as you smoke it in large amounts afterward when you quit they say memory should return to normal. The AMA also states that the drug is better in your lungs than Tabacco in the way that it does less damage because people smoke it less to get the effects needed.
They also say that you still shouldn’t smoke it and it would be healthier to ingest the drug. There have also been false reports made on the drug to scare people away from using it. For instance, Dr. Gabriel Nahas was fired for falsifying reports that the drug did kill humans by experimenting on monkeys. He put the animals into a room and exposed them to proportionally more Marijuana than a human would smoke in a life time to prove his point, but he hid the fact of the amount of smoke used. The AMA supports the legalization of Marijuana because its applications to medical use in many ways.
Deaths due to weed. So far there have been no deaths due to marijuana recorded, in fact the only way to actually overdose on the drug is by smoking three quarters of a ton of it in fifteen minutes!!yes, you heard it folks fifteen minutes! Doing this is humanly impossible in fact you are more likely to pass out before accomplishing this task. The only deaths are related to people using the drug then trying to perform other tasks like driving or to perform some other task that involves large amounts of concentration. In fact, a only 75 people in America are killed in Marijuana related incidents a year. Here is a chart showing the deaths in overdose and or long term use ofother drugs in comparison to Marijuana per year.
The drug hasnt been involved in many if at all any violent crimes. In fact Federal Bureau of Narcotics Director Harry Anslingerreports that Marijuana is not a violence-inducing drug, it is the exact opposite it is a anti-violent drug or a pacifist. Every year Twenty million people either smoke or attempt to smoke the drug they include artists, Musicians, Writers, Inventors and yes even Lawyers.
He saysthat they could be some of the happiest people you know. :)Marijuana is in no way addictive and the statement of the drugbeing a stepping stone for greater more dangerous drugs is false. Studies have shown that it has the same effect as Caffeine, sugar, oralcohol. The only crimes usually ever committed are having thepossession or smoking the drug.
THCTHC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is the active ingredient in Marijuanait causes minor hallucinations, what appears to be the slowing down oftime and is also considered a downer or depressant. THC can be found inthree forms Marijuana, Hashish, and Hashish Oil. Marijuana or Cannabissativa also known weed the most widely used for of THC and is the only plant known to produce it. The plant is most commonly know as aweed usually takes six to seven months to start budding the bud is the part of the plant that is usually smoked and or eaten. The plantrequires a rather warm and moist place to grow properly. If not grown properly the plants THC level is reduced dramatically.
Hashish is defined in the websters dictionary as a narcotic derived from hemp that is chewed, smoked or drunk for its intoxicating effects. Well. . . I guess that is about the best way you could put it. Hashish is most widely used in the Netherlands and Germany in places called well.
. . Hashish Bars. There you can purchase it and use it which is very uncommon for most countries because it is illegal every whereelse.
Hashish Oil is pretty much the same thing but it is in an oil form there for making it more potent. The first known use of marijuana is in 8000 B. C. where it was used for clothing and other useful little items.
The first known time that marijuana was smoked was in the year 2700 B. C. in the country of Chinafor religious purposes. Famous people that are have said to smoke the drug were Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, and yesit was even rumored that John F.
Kennedy Jr. was to have smoked itbecause it remedied his back problems. How Marijuana is SmokedThere are many different ways that people have invented to smokeit. The three main ways are the Joint, the Bowl, and one of the most liked styles the Bong. Joints are one of the most commonly used types of weed smoking.
It involves using a small sheet of paper calledrolling papers these can be bought at any local convenience store. Youroll the Marijuana by hand into the paper like a cigarette. Another common way of taking in the smoke is through a small pipeor Bowl. This is the easiest version of smoking it in that you onlyhave to put the drug into a relatively small container like you wouldstuff Tabacco into a pipe.
These are usually found in Cigarette andTabacco selling locations. The least common but healthiest way to smoke the drug is throughwhat the inventive, yet scientifically smart smokers have come up withcalled a Bong. This device has many features to it, for instance youuse water in this device to filter out the worst part of the smoke andleave nearly all THC. Some Bongs and Bowls come with what smokers calla carb which increases the hits intensity and volume. The governments standing on Marijuana seems to be constantlychanging. Most States spend millions of dollars in trying to control thesubstance and stop its use and distribution.
Some people think that itsa waste of time to spend the money and time on doing so but others seemto feel differently about it ( probably because they never used itbefore ) and try to futile stamp out its use. Just recently Californiapass a law saying that it was legal to have the possession of and smokethe drug but only for medical use and even then the law is very stricton the people that smoke it legally. Drug testing for Marijuana is relatively simple yet kind of odd. Adoctor will walk up to you with a small plastic disposable cup and hewill ask you for a urine sample. Now do not take offense at this, thisis what you have to do for the test hes not some weirdo asking for aurine sample for his collection back at home.
He will then take thesample to a lab and go through the gruesome progress of seeing if youurine sample has traces of THC in it the average test will take about aday. There are a few good but extremely odd ways of defeating the testif you now your going to test positive one of which is a pill calledGolden seal not much is known about how it does it but it does flush your system of the drug. Another way is a little more odd than thefirst you drink lots of vinegar (yuk!) I know what your going to say I won’t do that ever! Well your wrong when it comes down to it, if younice paying job is on the line well. . . chug chug chug away cause that is a quick way to do it.
There is another way to test for Marijuana and that is though hair sampling. This process is allot more expensive than urine sampling butit is more effective in detecting the drug. In fact the only way to notget detected is to shave every single hair off your body, and thatmeans EVERY hair including eyelashes, eyebrows, armpit hairs, leg hairs,arm hairs, and yes even down in the spot where it counts. If you doknow your going to take a hair test well kiss the job goodbye cause wellI think they will know when you come in for the test with out a singlehair on your body.
Well Im going to cut things short hope you dont mind but Imgoing to pass out otherwise. Its been fun ta ta.
