Synthetic marijuana realities and toxic effects: Long-term effects

The long-term effects on humans are not fully known, but experts from AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center reiterates that the effects of synthetic marijuana can be life-threatening, addictive and leads to withdrawal symptoms including craving, nightmares, heavy sweating, nausea, tremors, headaches, extreme tiredness, insomnia, diarrhea, vomiting, problems thinking clearly and neglect of other interests or duties. With all these effects, it beats the logic that people are still taking drugs to rid of bad feelings and situations which are only temporal because substances like marijuana only mask the problem for a while only to release the problem back in its full swing when the high fades.

Finally the vast majority of cocaine users are said to have begun using drugs like marijuana, cigarettes or alcohol before graduating into stronger drugs like cocaine. That is not in any way suggesting that everyone who smokes marijuana and hashish goes on to use harder drugs. Some never do. Others quit using marijuana altogether. But some do. That is why to be on the safer side, it is only fair that you keep off of any substances because the dangers are not anyone’s cup of tea. Stand out and be counted among the pillars and strengths of fighting the scourge of addiction from our communities.
