Side Effects & Symptoms of Marijuana

People who smoke marijuana generally experience numerous side effects.

Some common marijuana side effects and symptoms include:

  • Diminished motivation
  • Reduced energy levels
  • Decreased drive
  • Mood swings
  • Chemically-induced distortions
  • False perceptions of people and life
  • Distorted memories

Smoking marijuana can minimize a person’s chance for a naturally satisfying life. Marijuana can also be extremely harmful for young people, as using this drug on a regular basis at a younger age can limit what they are capable of learning and doing over time. Not only that, but smoking marijuana can drain a person’s self-confidence, limiting their trust in their own ability to find natural happiness and rewards out of life.

The Dangers of a Drug Lifestyle

Marijuana introduces people to altered perceptions and feelings, and an “I don’t care” attitude. It can often encourage use of other drugs, serving as a tipping point into more serious and addictive substances. Overall, frequent marijuana usage can lead an individual into an ever-deepening dependence on a drug-driven lifestyle.
