Weeds can be an important part of a garden or landscape if they add nutrients and provide habitat for birds, butterflies and insects. However, some weeds compete with crops and can even be toxic to human beings. They can be pulled by hand, or sprayed with herbicides. Proper identification is the first step in determining what to do with weeds.
Short-term effects of marijuana use include feelings of relaxation, hunger and sleepiness, a different sense of reality (colors may seem brighter) and paranoia or anxiety. In some cases, it can cause a brief psychosis with hallucinations. Marijuana also can slow reaction times and affect the ability to drive safely or do other tasks that require attention, memory and coordination.
Long-term use of marijuana can lead to a decreased appetite, which in some cases can be dangerous for people who are trying to gain weight or lose weight. It can also make people more prone to infections, such as pneumonia and bronchitis. It can also make a person feel less energy and can lead to depression, especially in teenagers.
