Shocking !! See The Side Effects Of Marijuana You May Not Know About by haydeey(m): 8:52am On Sep 12, 2017
The drug can affect more than your physical health. Studies in Australia in 2008 linked years of heavy marijuana use to brain abnormalities.

This is backed up by earlier research on the long-term effects of marijuana, which indicate changes in the brain similar to those caused by long-term abuse of other major drugs.

Research has it that Kids under 18 years who constantly “sm0ked”, gradually lose their abilities and achieve significantly less than what is expected of them.

Their IQ is reduced while their brain is still developing. Those who for years enjoy marijuana are at more risk of irreversible reduction of the coefficient of intelligence (IQ).

Teens who smoke marijuana again later as adults have bigger problems in maintaining their attention and memory than those young people who have never smoked cigarettes with tobacco which contains cannabis.

The use of cannabis causes a reduction in the coefficient of intelligence among young teenage age, and in some cases can cause mental damages.

Studies show that the mental functions of people who have smoked a lot of marijuana tend to be diminished. The THC in cannabis disrupts nerve cells in the brain affecting memory.
