The Truth about Marijuana Addiction

Marijuana is the word used to describe the dried flowers, seeds and leaves of the Indian hemp plant. Hashish is made from the plant’s gummy sap (resin) and is six times stronger than marijuana. Cannabis describes any of the different drugs that come from Indian hemp.Today’s growers have developed techniques to make the drug much stronger, resulting in an increase in the number of marijuana-related emergency room visits.Marijuana and hashish users build up a tolerance to the drugs, which can lead them to take more of it or experiment with stronger drugs to get the same effect.
