Transcript of Substance Abuse

Marijuana Before we begin, we want to show
you a video why taking drugs is bad!
Also, we will have notes/study guides,
so you don't have to take notes! Marijuana is a type of Cannabis ( Known as cannabis)
It is a green, brown, or gray mixture of dried, shredded leaves, stems, and flowers of the hemp plant. It's an illegal drug, but it can be prescribed by the doctor. Cannabis= a plant used to produce hemp
fiber. It is greenish-brown mixture of dry
plant material from the cannabis sativa
Marijuana is made from the plant " Cannabis
Sativa. Out of 6 substances ( cannabis, caffeine, cocaine, alcohol, heroin and nicotine )cannabis is the least addictive. Marijuana is usually smoked as a cigarette or pipe, but it is sometimes mixed in food (e.g.cookies) or brewed in tea. I bet you've all heard of Marijuana before... What happens if you take Marijuana??? It contains 400-500 chemicals.
And it is a poisonous plant!
Some of the same toxic substances found in tobacco smoke that can cause cancer. REASON #1: Well,when people reach the painful part of cancer, Marijuana helps them relieve pain. Marijuana has unpredictable effects,
depending on the amount taken, the
person's age and medical condition. Short term effects of Marijuana use: 1.Increased heart rate 2.slower reaction panic stress nervous worry Trouble with thinking and problem-solving Long term effects: 1.Personaltiy and mood changes
(or mood swings) 2.Unable to understand things clearly 3.Able to get common illnesses(i.e. colds) more easily 4. Study Reason #2:Marijuana makes you feel relaxed http://www.nationalantidrugstrategy.gc.ca/prevention/youth-jeunes/index.html References http://www.drugs.com/marijuana.html http://www.drugfreeworld.org/drugfacts/marijuana.html 5.red eyes! 4.mild paranoia (when you worry too much or create ridiculous worries in your head) 3.visual hallucinations. seeing things that
are not there. always wanting to sleep!
( drowsiness ) Annie's Perspective: Yes
Marijuana should be legalized
because it is used to treat
Alzheimer,nausea and Asthma. It's just
a matter of fact that people can
be treated if they have certain
illnesses that can be treated by
Marijuana's medical use.
Eighteen states and the District of
Columbia have legalized cannabis
for medical use. So why can't every place
legalize it? Teresa's Perspective: No
Marijuana only has very little
accepted medical use. Also,
most people take marijuana for fun,
than for medical use. Aren't there different
medicines to treat those problems?
I think marijuana should be illegal,
because it can produce a lot of damage
to our bodies, rather than treating illnesses. Perspectives Yes No Hi! ...what...

perspective Teresa's perspective Which one would you vote? Annie's perspective Teresa's perspective Most people would vote for Teresa's perspective Marijuana is known as the gateway drug. Gateway drug= a drug that opens the door to the use of other, harder drugs. For example, most people will start taking marijuana as a starter,
and later on they will take more harmful drugs like Cocaine or Heroin. You can think of it as an appetizer. Fun facts!!! http://answerpool.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/653603932/m/5631072501 http://gwired.gwu.edu/cms2/index.gw/Site_ID/5157/Page_ID/13628 Very good quanlity Marijuana costs about
