Marijuana abuse has been a real problem in America. The recreational drug seems harmless to most people. Some may tell you that “it’s just like alcohol, really.” In fact, it’s not, but just like any other drug, it can become a problem for many different people.
During the past few months, Americans had to struggle staying home during the COVID-19 pandemic. The majority of states across the country are still on lockdown, which means many of those residents are struggling with work, relationships, financial issues, etc. Many people getting sober and living through sobriety may find this time even more stressful.
Marijuana Use Can Lead to Marijuana Abuse
Any drug can become an abuse depending on the person, as well as the dependency. Although Marijuana isn’t considered to be an addictive substance, the drug use itself can become a normality in someone’s everyday life.
- Problems with school/work
- Impaired ability to learn and remember things
- Loss of interest in going places and doing things
Marijuana use has long been a confusing subject of for and against. Many don’t realize the long-term negative effects it can have on users.
How do I know if I have a marijuana abuse problem?
There are millions of new Marijuana users every year, which means that there will be millions of abusers, especially during a time when bars, restaurants, gyms, and other places have been closed for months. As we start to re-open the country, it’s important to look at how you’ve been dealing with a quarantine like this. If you find yourself using Marijuana on the daily or even more frequently, you could be subject to misuse. Becoming addicted to something can happen very quickly without even noticing it.
When you understand that Marijuana use can have a negative impact on your life, then you’ll realize that you may have a problem.
