Prolonged use of marijuana has been linked to an increased risk of developing schizophrenia later in life. Other possible health complications include:

• Short-term memory problems

• Difficulty with learning

• Limited attention span and ability to focus

• High heart rate

• Elevated blood pressure

• More frequent chest pains, especially when exercising

• Lung disease, when marijuana is smoked

• Increased risk of psychosis

• Increased risk of depression and anxiety

Recent research has suggested that marijuana may be useful in treating some health conditions, including chronic pain, Turrets, and even cancer. While medical marijuana can be beneficial when used under a doctor’s supervision, prolonged use for non-medical reasons can have serious and long-lasting impacts on your health and general wellbeing. A lifetime of consequences is never worth a few minutes on a false high.
