This is about a 26 year old friend of mine but I want to know what are the consequences of smoking weed on a daily basis?

This is about a 26 year old friend of mine but I want to know what are the consequences of smoking weed on a daily basis?

Many potential: Marijuana smoke contains bronchial irritants. Inhalation with marijuana is more prolonged & deeper than with tobacco. Higher combustion temperatures are reached because it is smoked to a shorter butt. This leads to a carboxyhemoglobin concentration that is 5 x ^ than tobacco. 3 x more tar is inhaled. Prolonged use of cannabis can lead to airway inflammation, wheezing & ^ in sputum production. ...Read more

My friend is suffering from stage 2 schizophrenia.His doctor stated, its because of weed he use to smoke daily since a year. Is weed that harmfull?

Unlikely: To my knowledge, there is no definitive research that supports this conclusion. More likely is that genetics influenced the development of schizophrenia. It's possible that heavy marijuana use sped up the process. Also likely he was in the prodromal stage of schizophrenia and was using marijuana to mask the symptoms he was having. Your friend will need your support. Good luck to you both. ...Read more

Hi, making a decision about whether to circumcise my newborn, is there a strong medical case for circumcision or is it just a preference?

Hi, making a decision about whether to circumcise my newborn, is there a strong medical case for circumcision or is it just a preference?

Personal choice: In the US circumcision is commonplace, 70-80 %, France 30%, Australia 30%, great Britain 10% (not covered by national health insurance). There is data suggesting increased life risks of UTI & STD if not. I remember it being the most requested elective surgery among young enlisted men during my Navy years. If it is done at all it is easiest and heals quickest in newborns. ...Read more

A friend is delusional/paranoid&suspicious of docs-was just released from a psych hold & is still refusing treatment. What can I do?

Refusing treatment: Tom Gutheil, MD from Harvard wrote Rotting with your Rights On. It details how in the face of mental illness they have the right to refuse tx. but not the right to get treatment. Unless dangerous to self or others u have no recourse. If they r call the police and have the committed involuntarily. i assume they r over 18yo. ...Read more

My friend is about to have a surgery on the shoulder is it okay to let him smoke marijuana after?

NO: Post op patients should optimize their general health, with rest, good diet, and avoidance of non prescription drugs. Marijuana does not have analgesic properties, and smoking of any kind reduces oxygen availability to the repair, and could hurt healing. Good luck to your "friend.". ...Read more

Consider Al-Anon and: Have you talked to your son about this? Express your concerns, but, unfortunately, it would be common for him to deny he has a problem. Alcohol abuse has both a genetic/physiological as well as psychological basis so perhaps gift him with a quality multivitamin high in B complex with the L-5MTHF form of folate. Check out an Al-Anon meeting for more advice/support: http://www.al-anon.alateen.org ...Read more

Should I smoke a bit of weed for the first time? Is it safe?

Should I smoke a bit of weed for the first time? Is it safe?

Should you?????: I am not sure why you think a doctor can (or even should) answer that question. If you have managed to reach the age of 32 without using marijuana, I would strongly recommend you keep it that way. It is, firstly, still illegal and people who are naive about how to get it are often the people who get into trouble when they try, and then have a criminal record. It also can cause anxiety/panic. ...Read more

Would marijuana make a better recreational drug than a cigerette? School project hurry up i need an anwser for a school project. Btw i know that using cannabis with a vaporizer is not as bad for you as smoking, but like a single joint compared to a single

Would marijuana make a better recreational drug than a cigerette? School project hurry up i need an anwser for a school project. Btw i know that using cannabis with a vaporizer is not as bad for you as smoking, but like a single joint compared to a single

NO!!!!!!: Tobacco is plenty bad, and I am not recommending it, but marijuana, however "safe" it may be in adults when used occasionally socially, as is alcohol in most cases, is not safe in teens. It impairs learning, decreases motivation for other activities, and can increase the chances of underlying psychiatric issues becoming more severe. Tobacco has more "tars, " and is worse for lungs than marijuana. ...Read more

My nephew is having a major surgery, she does not want to tell him about it at all, is this a good idea? He is 10 yrs old

I'd suggest she tell: It isn't your decision; however, I would suggest that it is his body and he has a right to know what is going on. Children are more capable than we give them credit for and NOT telling is more likely to cause trust and betrayal issues as he will obviously eventually know and have to recover. ...Read more

A friend of mine is a long term methamphetamine user. How does she rehab at home? (She's more willing to do this then inpatient treatment.)

Any step: Narcotics anonymous or some other peer support group. Be there for your friend. She'll also need a counselor who's a recovered user and can see through what the drug has done to her. I am so glad she wants to rehab, and that she has you as a friend. ...Read more
