Today marijuana is the subject of heated public debate. It medical uses, recreational abuses and laws regarding such issues are matters of political controversy. But while the politicians, advocates and media assert their favored positions, there are some facts which are beyond dispute.
Marijuana, today, has been raised to a potency which is far higher than it was when the controversy began to heat up in the 1960s and 70s. It is in increasingly widespread use and is one of the initial drugs frequently used by youth. While not physically addictive, users often develop an emotional dependency on the drug, resulting in increasing use, similar to the pattern of physical addiction. And it is completely beyond question that the drug creates mental and emotional distortions which can lead to harmful acts which the user would otherwise avoid. More controversial but nevertheless documented, are research findings that marijuana use is associated with lowered IQ, loss of motivation and brain damage.
For those who are trapped in a destructive marijuana haze, for those who see their loved ones caught in a life which seems to center around nothing but getting high and whose behavior has become increasingly erratic and undependable, there is no question that marijuana is a dangerous drug.
