Cannabis use can be more addicting than Heroin
Cannabis is highly addictive, causes mental health problems and opens the door to hard drugs, has numerous dangerous health side effects, according to a new study.
The comprehensive 20 year study was performed by Professor Wayne Hall, a British addiction expert.
This important study found marijuana:
Other studies have suggested that marijuana could alter the sperm production process, shrink male testicles, cause male infertility and damages men's sperm. See Marijuana Use Damages the size, shape and motility of Men's Sperm.
"It is often harder to get people who are dependent on cannabis through withdrawal than for heroin" , according to Professor Hall. Those who try to stop taking cannabis often suffer anxiety, insomnia, appetite disturbance and depression, he found. Even after treatment, less than half can stay off the drug for six months.
Professor Halls primary finding is that regular marijuana use, especially among teenagers, leads to long-term mental health problems and addiction.
Why do the media elites refuse to publish studies that show marijuana is dangerous to health?
