It is used in three variant forms i.e. hashish, marijuana, and hash oil.

So, before using this drug one must be aware of the following facts about cannabis and its effect on mental health.

1. Most common among drugs

  1. I don’t think there really are any cannabis addicts, though many people who smoke it will claim to be, they have probably been smoking it for so long that they will miss it,(big-time) when they are without it. I would say, it’s more of a psychological problem, ie, having to go without it and how can we possibly legalize this drug if people are going to be working around machines, often with other people depending and relying on them. Would you honestly and truthfully feel 100% safe with your work partner having just smoked a joint (reefer) and your safety relied on them ? I know I wouldn’t and anyone with a brain wouldn’t either.
