Marijuana: An overview

It is definitely important to know what is marijuana and how we get addicted to it.  Cambridge Advanced Learner defines marijuana as "a usually illegal drug made from the dried leaves and flowers of the HEMP plant, which when eaten or smoked can cause a pleasant feeling and relaxation".  The main cause of addiction to this weed is because of its primary chemical element tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).   This element is actively present in marijuana which is responsible for inducing relaxation and heightens of the senses.

People generally consume marijuana as like smoking cigarettes, popularly known as joints. This weed is also taken by hollowed cigar pipes, internally filled with it.

    Thanks for your post. I myself was addicted to marijuana. I always thought that it was just a part of my lifestyle. But I soon realised that I couldn’t do what I wanted to do and also be a full-time smoker. Fortunately I can now live with addiction, fully accept it and I am not afraid of judgemental attitudes of our society (the lack of compassion).
