how bad is marijuana?

Addiction= disease

Ganja
Marijuana is not bad. Using marijuana may be harmful. Disease is not a moral problem. Neither the addict or the drug is bad.

Accutane and marijuana?

Not a good idea

Stringio
Accutane has been linked to severe depression and suicidality in some people. Adding another drug that can leave you depressed to that one is not a good idea. I'm sure some have combined these and will say they've had no problems, but I would still not recommend it.

How dangerous is marijuana?

Somewhat to very

Marijuana
Marijuana is no longer the mellow 70s drug that it is frequently referenced as. Growers have bred it to be many times as potent and sellers even lace it with other chemicals (bleach, formaldehyde, cocaine) to enhance the experience.

Dr. Kevin Passer answered:

How addictive is marijuana?

Depends

Encephalitis
An addiction is a brain disease. It causes a person to engage in behaviors which may lead to dire consequences. The person knows that but engages in the behavior anyway, because they are addicted. It is all about the consequences. Is a person missing work or school or spending too much money or getting in trouble with the law? Cannabis use can lead to addiction, especially with regular use.

Can marijuana help anxiety?

The problem with

Marijuana
using marijuana for anxiety, in addition to it's being an illegal substance is that it is not well controlled. All too often it may be spiked with another drug. You would not know what you were taking. The psychotropic drugs are regulated and tested. You know what you are taking and the possible side effects. If you want medication for your anxiety, talk to a psychiatrist.

Dr. Adam Front answered:

Is marijuana good for asthma?

Lung damage

Asthma
Smoking ANYTHING will worsen a respiratory condition such as asthma. If you have ever seen the inside of a pipe used for smoking pot, imagine what you are putting inside your lungs. In addition, pot worsens anxiety and depression, wreaks havoc with the sleep cycle, suppresses the immune system, reverses the balance of sex hormones in both men and women, etc. See your MD for other solutions.
