Common Issues That Trigger Marijuana Use

Marijuana is inexpensive, easy to find and the legal repercussions are less severe than with other illicit drugs; this makes the drug quite popular choice. Also, marijuana can cause euphoria, relaxation, pleasure, sexual arousal and lessen one’s inhibitions. It can dull one’s memory, thought-processes, senses, time-perception and coordination. While some effects may sound unpleasant, users in physical or emotional pain may find these effects especially appealing. The ability to temporarily forget one’s problems or escape from reality is a major cause of marijuana abuse. In short, marijuana use is triggered by issues stress-related issues, relationship problems, pressures at work, family troubles, major life changes and more. Those with emotional pain are also susceptible to marijuana abuse. Common triggers may include loneliness, depression, loss of a loved one, trauma, etc.

Marijuana use may also be triggered by physical pain. The effects of marijuana are therapeutic for those with certain illnesses or injuries, which is why the drug has been legalized for limited medical use. The drug alleviates of nausea, eye pressure and bone and joint pain while stimulating appetite and decreasing muscle spasms and convulsions. However, because the drug is addictive and harmful, it is only used for specific illnesses such as cancer, AIDS, glaucoma, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis. Physicians understand the dangers of marijuana use and only prescribe it when necessary. Therapeutic marijuana does not treat any of these conditions, only alleviates symptoms—these issues remain after the marijuana wears off. For this reasons, it is important to find alternate options to treat your problems.
