What are some of
  the effects
marijuana has on
   the body?
 Slowed thinking,
  difficult paying
    attention, no
  sense of time or
       distance,
loss of short term
       memory,
shrinks your brain
  Can you become dependant on
  marijuana?

    Yes,
you can build
 a tolerance
    and a
dependence
     to it.
  Can marijuana use affect your
     driving? If so, how?

                       Yes, much like how
                      alcohol affects your
                            driving.


It can slow your reaction
   time and impair your
        judgment.

Marijuana and School
Marijuana and school don’t
 mix. Marijuana makes it
    harder for users to
 concentrate, and slows
      thinking down.       Marijuana damages the
                             user’s memory and
                            things such as simple
                           math problems become
                             extremely difficult.
 One of the prevalent
 effects of marijuana is
  the decline in school
      performance.
 What are inhalants? What are 2 legal
inhalants used by physicians?
    Drugs that are inhaled as vapors such as




  Laughing Gas              Asthma Inhaler
                                                      SNIFFING
                                            Users may inhale the chemical
                                              vapors directly from open
                                                     containers
                                The chemicals are
                                 quickly absorbed
                              through the lungs into
                               the bloodstream and
                              quickly reach the brain
                                 and other organs



  Because they reach the
 brain with a faster speed
   and force than other
   substances, they can
cause irreversible physical
   and mental damages.
What type of effects might you
 experience from inhalants?

            Hyperactivity,
         loss of inhibitions,
           dizziness, loss of
             coordination,
          difficulty speaking
           and thinking, fear,
                anxiety,
               depression

psychoactive drug that is chemically
      similar to the stimulant
    methamphetamine and the
     hallucinogen mescaline.

                 Ecstasy (MDMA) produces
                feelings of increased energy,
                euphoria, emotional warmth,
                   and distortions in time,
                   perception, and tactile

    refined into different

   euphoria to which users quickly
   develop a tolerance.
