Drugs Long Term Effects: the Brutal Reality

Depending on the type of drug a person uses, he or she will experience different drugs long term effects. It doesnâ??t matter if you think that pot is a soft drug and you will only do that drug because the others are hard drugs. Thatâ??s nonsense. Did you know that internationally, cannabis is considered to by as bad a cocaine, heroin, etcâ?¦? But letâ??s not get into a discussion which drug is softer than another, the truth is that all drugs have horrible drugs long term effects.

The information you will read here is the truth as it comes. No whichi-wachi nonsense. All the research has come from official pages of the United Nations, World Health Organization and more. Drugs long term effects will cripple the bodyâ??s ability to do something specific without drug use. This is why itâ??s do hard to overcome drug addiction, because of the drugâ??s long term effects.

Lets start with a popular-known drug called Methamphetamine, also known as “Meth,” and many more. This drug stimulates the brain ability to produce pleasure, and with repeated use, the long term drug effect will be horrible. It will literally “turn off” the brainâ??s ability to produce pleasure without the presence of Meth. Another popular known drug is Crack/Cocaine. It has very similar drug long term effects as Meth, but as a big extra long term drug effect, cocaine has the uniqueness of accompanying the short-lived euphoria by a “crash.”

This involves repeatedly falling into depressions, anxiety attacks, extreme fatigue and paranoia, as well as deterioration of general health. A common drug long term effect is to develop an extreme carving for more cocaine but will only result into more long term drug effects of depression, paranoia, etcâ?¦

Heroin is a brutal drug that produces drugs long term effects of kidney shut down, poisoning from contaminated spots of injection and even toxic leukoencephalopathy. Drugs long term effects associated to toxic leukoencephalopathy range from forgetfulness, inattention, and changes in personality to coma, dementia, and even death.

And for last, I left the drugs long term effects of marijuana. A single straw of marijuana contains more tar than you can find inside a whole pack of cigarettes. Somehow, it has been widely thought that smoking a cigarette is worse that smoking pot, while in reality itâ??s completely the other way around. Other marijuana drugs long term effects can be homosexual tendencies, impotence, and serves as a welcome door to other drugs as well.

Drugs kill, ands thatâ??s that, not matter which drugs long term effects they have. If you think someone close to you is using, talk to him and consider a drug rehab center immediately.

Effects of Marijuana in the Amygdala

The amygdala has several functions, most of which are involved with assigning emotional value.  With out this part of the brain we wouldn’t be more than a droid.  The amygdala is constantly monitoring our experience.  A large proportion of the marijuana “high” is created by the impact of THC on the amygdala.Marijuana turns the boring into fascination.  We start seeing the things most people have learned to ignore, suddenly noticing all 73 clouds floating high above.  Your senses are turned on.. taste buds erupt over your routine tv dinner.  Movies are seen for a 3rd time, as though never seen before.  Tests of driving skills reveal that people compensate by slowing down and being more careful.  Very different from drunk drivers, who tend to overestimate their skill and actually increase speeds. Once upon a time, in a place called the United States of America, the hemp plant was harvested and turned into paper. In fact, the Declaration of Independence was signed on hemp paper. Now thanks to medical research, we are just realizing that marijuana may have serious medical worth. In a study conducted by Jerry Kennard at they found the active ingredient in marijuana, delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), to have anti-anxiety qualities. Participants in the study took thc pills and were exposed to a series of pictures. The pictures were meant to draw an emotion – either comforting, or threatening. The amygdale, a part of the brain that regulates emotions, was less affected by threatening images in the users of the thc pill than those exposed to the placebo. This may lead to breakthroughs in anti-anxiety pharmaceuticals.  It would be great to see a natural remedy for anxiety instead of the addictive pharmaceuticals on the market right now. Tobacco and pharmacy lobbyists in Washington don’t want hemp to be grown because they see it as a threat to their profitability. We need to realize that hemp makes the strongest rope, can be easily turned into an alternative fuel, and has medicinal value.
