Learn More About The Effects Of Drugs
Drugs have been around for a very long time. Drugs are not only used by the millennials; they were also used largely by people in the past. Hallucinogenic mushrooms have been in existence for a very long time and they were used to a large extent by people in the past. These mushrooms grew naturally. Do not think that drugs are good for you just because your ancestors used them at one point. People in the past can be excused for their drug use since there were no studies on the effects of drugs at the time.It is also important to note that all the drugs used in the past grew naturally, which explains why there were no effects like those experienced when one indulges in the use of modern day drugs.
A lot of things have evolved with the continuous development of science and technology and sadly, one of these things is drugs. You will find that most of the drugs currently in use are manufactured in laboratories and then sold to ignorant individuals. A lot of chemicals are combined in the manufacture of most of these drugs, thereby making them very dangerous. If you use the drugs being sold today, you will lose your power of reasoning and find yourself craving more even when you know the drugs are wrong for you. This article seeks to educate the reader on the effects of two of the most widely used drugs in the world.
Firstly, let’s take a look at cannabis. Marijuana is another name for this drug though a lot of youths prefer to call it weed. Recent studies on cannabis have shown that it can be used in the treatment of some diseases and hence its legalization in a number of states. More research on cannabis shows that just like alcohol, the drug numbs a person’s central nervous system and hence the reason why most marijuana users are unable to react fast to certain situations. The long-term effects of cannabis are paranoia and schizophrenia, especially if you start using the drug at an early age.
Another drug we need to look at is cocaine. Unlike cannabis and alcohol, cocaine is a stimulant that gives one a buzz for a few minutes. After the buzz, you will experience a crash and this is when you will crave more of the drug here hence the reason why this drug is one of the most addicting. Cocaine fastens one’s heart rate and this can cause breathing problems, a heart attack or a stroke. The after effects of cocaine are hallucinations, psychosis, sleep deprivation, loss of appetite and hence loss of weight and collapse of the wall dividing the nasal chamber because the snorting of cocaine causes nose sores.
