When your marijuana eater is stressed or stressed out, there’s a good chance they’ll become addicted to marijuana, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The agency, in a recent report, found marijuana consumption is the leading cause of marijuana-related deaths and a leading cause in accidental deaths.
According to the CDC, marijuana is a gateway drug for people who do not have the capacity to consume other substances.
In addition to driving the high, the use of marijuana has led to an increase in opioid abuse.
According in the report, people who are more stressed or have chronic health problems like hypertension and diabetes are more likely to be affected by marijuana-induced addictions.
Dr. Michael R. Weiss, the chief medical officer for the National Association of Poison Control Centers, said the drug has been linked to an increased risk of depression and anxiety, while it can increase a person’s risk of psychosis and addictions to alcohol, tobacco and prescription painkillers.
According the report by the CDC and the National Institute on Drug Abuse, marijuana use and its effects on people’s bodies can lead to problems, including heart disease, cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Dr., Michael R Weiss, chief medical director for the national association of poison control centers, says marijuana can be used for many different reasons.
He says the marijuana can lead someone to overdo it, to become overly dependent on it and, at times, to turn to it for relief from pain or anxiety.
But when marijuana is used as an alternative to other forms of treatment, it can also lead to health problems, like lung and kidney disease, he said.
“In fact, the marijuana is potentially a drug of abuse,” Weiss said.
He added that the drug can have side effects, including anxiety, panic attacks, depression and other mental health problems.
Weiss also pointed out that marijuana can cause people to overeat, which can lead them to overwork, which may contribute to obesity and diabetes.
“It can cause stress and increase hunger, which is another risk factor for chronic health conditions like heart disease,” he said, noting that marijuana use also has been found to increase the risk of schizophrenia and other disorders.
The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has also found marijuana use is a major contributor to global warming.
According, the panel found marijuana was responsible for about 4.7 billion metric tons of CO2 emissions in 2012.
But marijuana is not a gateway to other substances, and its use is not an addictive substance.
Dr, Dr. Donald C. Riddell, an addiction specialist at New York University School of Medicine, said that marijuana is an “intrinsically rewarding” substance and people who use marijuana should not feel too bad about their use.
However, he added, if someone is using marijuana for a long time, they may experience side effects.
“If you’re doing it for a very long time you might have an addiction,” he explained.
According Dr. Raskin, marijuana can affect mood, cognition and self-esteem.
He said some people may have trouble with addiction because they are not aware of the risks.
Dr Raskins opined that people who experience symptoms of addiction should talk with their doctor or seek help.
“I think it’s important for people to have a conversation with their physician, but it’s also important to have the conversation with yourself about whether or not you should continue,” he added.
He also said that there are no safe levels of marijuana consumption, as people may become addicted if they are consuming too much.
He advised people to talk with family and friends about their marijuana use before starting a marijuana habit.
“Do not put yourself on this list of those who are addicted,” he advised.
