Chronic marijuana use, especially at today’s potency, can cause addiction and impair the physical, psychological and social functioning of the user. This ground-breaking program presents recovering marijuana addicts and experts to help pierce denial about this addiction, and illustrates how the negative consequences are often hard to recognize.
Signs of marijuana dependence and side effects illustrated include:
- lack of motivation
- poor job performance
- avoidance of non-using family and friends
- depression and anxiety
- memory loss
- respiratory problems
- panic attacks
Recovering people provide hope and inspiration as they describe how, with long-term abstinence from marijuana, the “fog” has cleared, motivation is back, memory is returning, and depression is lifting.
