Pothead

November 28th, 2008 · No Comments

A pothead is one who habitually smokes marijuana which is often called “pot,” “grass,” “weed,” “reefer,” or “mary jane”.

Marijuana is a greenish-gray mixture of the dried, shredded leaves, stems, seeds, and flowers of Cannabis sativa, the hemp plant.

Most users smoke marijuana in hand-rolled cigarettes called joints, among other names; some use pipes or water pipes called bongs. Marijuana cigars called blunts have also become popular.

Unscientific Research About Marijuana Abuse

Here are comments from a previous distributor of marijuana regarding his observation of his pothead clients over the long term.

Potheads:

* suffer from poor memory
* are lethargic
* have low vitality
* have lower sexual appetite
* have abnormally coated tongues and bad breath
* are more susceptible to infection and colds that last for months
* can not smell or taste as well as nonheads

The above is an unscientific study but revealing anyway.

Most drug addiction treatment programs will not offer specific procedures for marijuana addiction because they do not know what to do to heal the person.

But there are ways to heal and you need to start with brain repair.
