Présentation de l'éditeur

This concise publication about marijuana is written in easy-to-read and to understand terms. It is written for parents, other family members and educators concerned about the effects of marijuana on children and adolescents.

Marijuana is the most widely used illegal drug in America.

Marijuana is a plant that can be grown almost anywhere. Many Americans farm plots in secluded areas. Others grow it indoors with artificial light. Some grow it in their homes.

It is possible to find at least one plant in nearly every American neighborhood.

Because it is easy to grow, and because there are so many users to purchase it, marijuana has become a major cash crop.

In 1937, the government classified marijuana as a dangerous drug and began an anti-marijuana campaign. They described marijuana as the killer weed. Movies such as Reefer Madness portrayed marijuana users as demented slaves to the drug. Medical professionals believed it caused insanity.

Although there was no scientific evidence to support these views, the use of marijuana declined dramatically.

During the Vietnam War era of the 1960s and early 1970s, the widespread use of marijuana re-entered American society. Soldiers and students used the drug as an act of rebellion against government policies.

Some people claimed that if more people used marijuana the world would be beautiful and peaceful.

Because of a lack of scientific information, marijuana came to be known as a harmless drug.

The marijuana of the 21st Century, however, is far more powerful than ever before in its history of use.

Contemporary scientific research has proven that marijuana is neither killer weed nor harmless. Rather, its effects are somewhere between these extremes.

Many users of marijuana are exposed to marijuana in childhood. Because they are still developing physically, emotionally and mentally, marijuana use in youth is especially dangerous.

One of its most significant effects is short-term memory loss. Children who use marijuana may also

• Have learning difficulties
• Lose their energy and desire to achieve
• Experience delay in the maturation process
• Have slowed emotional development and
• Have difficulty forming meaningful relationships.

The information presented in this publication will help the reader more fully understand how dependency on marijuana use can affect the lives of children.

This concise e-book provides important facts about marijuana, including the answers to 21 revealing questions about

• Does marijuana lead to the use of other drugs?
• Is marijuana psychologically addictive?
• Is marijuana physically addictive?
• How does marijuana affect the brain?
• How does marijuana affect the immune system?
• How does marijuana affect the reproductive system?
• How can marijuana affect school performance?

There is also an explanation of the Progression of Marijuana Dependency.

Five lists provide additional information about using marijuana, including

1. Symptoms of possible marijuana use
2. Psychological effects of using marijuana
3. Physical effects of using marijuana
4. Understanding recovery
5. Agencies and services to contact about marijuana

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Waln Brown was born in York, Pennsylvania, a "surprise" child of ill-matched parents who did the "right thing" and got married. For the next 11 years, they fought constantly, creating an unhealthy environment that adversely affected Waln emotionally and behaviorally. Rejected by his father for "ruining his life," and confused by his mother's obsessive-compulsive disorder of washing him in her "crazy clean" solution of Lysol and ammonia, Waln began a pattern of acting out that led to placement in an orphanage, juvenile detention home, state psychiatric hospital and juvenile reform school. A terrible student who spent 8th grade in special education, failed the ninth grade and graduated 187th in a class of 192 students, Waln earned an A.S. degree from York College of Pennsylvania, B.S. from the Pennsylvania State University (summa cum laude) and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Pennsylvania. He held positions with the Pennsylvania Department of Education, the National Center for Juvenile Justice and the Orthogenic School at the University of Chicago. Waln is the CEO of the William Gladden Foundation and the author of over 240 books, articles and popular publications about youth and family issues.
