About

Marijuana is a psychoactive drug which also has some medicinal properties. The drug is a derivative of the plant known as cannabis and includes the chemical THC which is the main compound in marijuana that gives it its psychoactive properties that give the user a “high”, or an increase in dopamine which gives the user a good feeling. Another side effect from using the drug is known as “the munchies”, or hunger caused by its consumption.

Marijuana can also be referred to as “weed” and “pot”.[1]

History

Marijuana was first known to be used by the ancient Chinese emperor Shen Nung around 2727 B.C.E. Marijuana was first brought to the West by the Spanish. The cannabis plant grows wild in tropical, humid areas. It has been used as rope, animal feed, and painting oil as well as a drug and for medicinal purposes. Marijuana is said to have therapeutic properties and useful for other medical procedures, but the drug also carries many negative side effects such as lung disease, various cancers, and short term effects such as an increased heart rate and distorted cognitive functions. Marijuana being used for recreational and medicinal purposes is still a major issue today and its use in both ways is still illegal in most places.[2]
