Cannabis can be described as a combination of depressants and hallucinogens since they induce effects caused by both. Marijuana is a frequently mentioned type of cannabis readily available and commonly used. Due to its medicinal uses it has been misconceived that marijuana is not really an addictive substance. In actuality, excessive amounts of it can lead to addiction like any other drug. While it is commonly smoked it can be consumed in other forms as well.
It has both short and long term negative consequences for the consumer which includes memory deficits, slower reaction time, problems of physical coordination and other severe mental processing issues.
