... weed use and the low-down on high times ... (philippines, life coach, counselor, psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist)

the tv crew of rescue, a gma tv documentary, did an interview on the negative effects of marijuana use.
. many people who smoke weed think that it's harmless just because its herbal and organic. from my long-time experience as an addiction specialist, i would say that marijuana use even is more difficult to stop than shabu use.
research shows strong evidence that marijuana use may trigger the onset or relapse of schizophrenia. in fact, many patients in my rehab are young individuals who suffer from psychotic symptoms (paranoia, hallucinations, delusions, etc.) and may have to take antipsychotic medications for a lifetime.
. to all weed users, better be safe than sorry. quit while you're still symptom-free.
