In October 2018, Canada became one of the first major world economies to legalize marijuana use, also known as weed. Currently many countries and American states are debating whether to follow suit.
What might be the dangers of legalization? Will it increase the number of people already abusing drugs? Will it lead to more traffic accidents; unproductive workers who can even make dangerous mistakes; lower education achievement; and/or increase family problems?
Although many claim that marijuana is beneficial for certain medical uses, it does have side effects, such as: affecting short-term memory; impairing cognitive ability; possibly containing cancer-causing compounds; and carries the risk of abuse and addiction.
Marijuana is usually detectable in bodily fluids for 1 to 30 days after last use. As with other drugs, it may be detectable in hair for several months. Marijuana-detection windows depend on how much you smoke or ingest, as well as how often. In general, higher doses and more frequent use are associated with longer detection times. The longer it stays within the body, the more dangerous the side effects can be experienced.
Why even smoke weed at all? Is there another way to be blissed out? Sadhguru provides insight into this.
