What effects does marijuana have on young people?

One major concern about marijuana is its possible effects on young people as they grow up. Research shows that the earlier people start using drugs, the more likely they are to go on to experiment with other drugs. In addition, when young people start using marijuana regularly, they often lose interest and are not motivated to do their schoolwork. The effects of marijuana can interfere with learning by impairing thinking, reading comprehension, and verbal and mathematical skills. Research shows that students do not remember what they have learned when they are "high".

Why was marijuana criminalised?

The use of marijuana can cause those who use it to become psychologically dependent on it. This can cause them to do whatever they can to fulfill their desire for marijuana. They may commit acts of violence, or breaches of the law, all to get more marijuana. The criminalization of marijuana was supposed to provide harsh consequences for those who opened their lives to the evils of marijuana. Marijuana was criminalized because the users of marijuana become dependent on it and often do things that they would not do if they were not psychologically dependent on marijuana. The criminalization of marijuana theoretically will help more people abstain from use of marijuana because of the harsh consequences. Marijuana can be harmful to the human body, some people also say there are benefits.
