What can marijuana do to your body if a child?

What can marijuana do to your body if a child?

Nothing good: Smoking mj, tobacco, or any other harmful substance in the house, car, or elsewhere near a child means that child is a passive smoker, which is never good for his/her lungs.Because of smaller body surface area, children can get "stoned" by much lower amts. Of mj than adults. Being in an altered state impairs development & increases risk for accidents. Mj passes thru breast milk, also. ...Read more

If i smoke a gram a day and I am due june 11 will marijuana still be in mine and my baby's system if i quit a month before she comes ?

Baby is already here: Look, your baby is already here on the physical plane, inside you. Everything you do affects her. Your body -- including the nutrients or toxins you put into it -- is creating hers, cell by cell. She has a life force that's hers, taking over from what you give her. She can't be on her own yet, yet she is here in terms of your being able to love her or poison her. Which do you choose? Good luck. ...Read more

What's the significance of marijuana?

What's the significance of marijuana?

Using it, right?: Mj has been linked to a 3-fold increase in schizophrenia. It's use has been linked to decreased brain function, & linked to shrinkage of the thalamus, an important brain structure that controls or modulates neural activity. All in all, a wolf in sheep's clothing. In many cases it is definitely a gateway drug introducing acceptance to other drug experimentation & possibly addictions. It's illegal. ...Read more

What are your thoughts on medicinal marijuana?

What are your thoughts on medicinal marijuana?

Need a standard : Prop 215 legalized mmj in ca. The problem with it is it unscientifically listed numerous diseases & symptoms a dr can recommended it for. Allowing drs to prescribe it is fine. But approving it for a myriad of diseases with no scientific basis created a huge problem. Now there are more dispensaries than 7-11s. An 18 year old can get mmj for insomnia in lieu of sleep hygiene education from his gp! ...Read more

Is marijuana good for your health?

Marijuana and health: I would take the morality out of the question or the 'good' versus 'bad' with marijuana use. Like any substance the over use of this product can lead to intoxication, addiction, and other health or mental health concerns. But, the direct effect of cannabis on the human tissue is not unhealthy in and of itself. Cannabis can be a good appetite stimulant, an anti-inflammatory, and anxiolytic. ...Read more
