Marijuana Is Not Harmless
Along with cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine, marijuana is still considered as being one of the primary drug threats in the US according to the DEA. It is also one of the most frequent and earliest abused substances among younger users and teenagers.
Although it is not viewed as a serious public health threat like the other 3 substances, health organizations and medical professionals have not taken their focus off marijuana. The question “is marijuana addictive?” oftentimes arises and the answer is only speculative at best. However, there are two schools of thought regarding this question as well as the drug’s characteristics.
Certain groups who do not view marijuana as being potentially addictive still feel that it is abused heavily by some and is what is known as a “gateway” drug. In other words, it is a substance that can lead to using more powerfully addictive ones. Again, all of this is based on speculation and there is no proof to substantiate this. This is not to say that certain health issues will not arise when you are using marijuana in recreational fashion.
