  • Marijuana affects the lungs and bronchial passages of users in the same fashion as tobacco use. Marijuana also affects the hormone levels of users. In adolescent pot users, regular use of the drug can delay the onset of puberty in young men and reduce sperm production. For women, regular use may disrupt normal monthly menstrual cycles and inhibit ovulation. When pregnant women use marijuana, they run the risk of having smaller babies with lower birth weights, who are more likely than other babies to develop health problems. Some studies also found indications of developmental delays in children exposed to marijuana before birth.

    Marijuana has a chemical in it called tetrahydrocannabinol, better known as THC. Marijuana in all forms is mind-altering (psychoactive)β€”it alters our brain function. THC acts on cannabinoid receptors found in areas of the brain involved in memory (the hippocampus), concentration (cerebral cortex), perception (sensory portions of the cerebral cortex) and movement (the cerebellum, substantia nigra, globus pallidus). When THC activates cannabinoid receptors, it interferes with the normal functioning of these brain areas. A lot of other chemicals are found in marijuana, too β€” about 400 of them, some of which are carcinogenic.

    So with all of these long term side-effects. You think it's worth it? You know the lungs are pretty important to your life and every time you suck in smoke and hold it in your lungs, it slowly kills your ability to breathe and I'm pretty sure you have to breathe to live. Do you think that eating unhealthy is a bad choice? Most people do and they make a big deal about eating out being so bad but they stand up for marijuana abuse? That's hypocritical. Be healthy because it's a good choice. Don't smoke.
