A short video casts a whole new light on the relationship between marijuana and opiates/opioids like heroin, fentanyl, oxycodone and hydrocodone.
In this series, we examine the ever-changing nature of drug abuse in the United States, and how the shifting patterns of available drugs or methods of consumption can catch people unaware. They can be tricked into a habit that quickly becomes addiction.
It’s no good thinking of marijuana like it’s 1967 or even 1985 because what we have now bears absolutely no resemblance to what we had then . The current climate of commercialization has driven enormous changes.
There’s no denying the fact that marijuana use is becoming “normalized” in the United States. This means that it is more important than ever to understand the effects of using marijuana and what benefits might occur if one stops.
There are probably a lot of people who think they can spot an addicted person. What they may not realize is that one in twelve Americans is dependent on or abusing substances like alcohol or heroin and they may not be so easy to identify.
