How to Heal from Marijuana Addiction

How to Heal from Marijuana Addiction

Marijuana is a popular and dangerous drug that is easy to get and easy to smoke. The drug causes serious problems from psychological addiction to impaired social and job skills. It is sometimes called a gateway drug to far more dangerous and harmful drugs such as heroin, cocaine and other narcotics. Although popular and although many in our society take a casual attitude towards using marijuana, it is actually an unhealthy escape from real life. Ironically, while using the drug may make you feel temporarily peaceful and relaxed, you are actually drifting toward a broken and fragmented life.
