The idea to write this book arose from the desire, the passion, and the personal mission to share and create awareness about the potential risks of marijuana usage as the world grows even more open to recreational marijuana.
Written in simple terms, this book aims to share some answers and discuss crucial questions about cannabis, also known as marijuana.
What is cannabis? What can it really do to your brain? Can it lead to psychosis, depression, anxiety, and suicide? Can cannabis lead to lung cancer? What effects might it have on your family life or on your social relationships? And could using cannabis change how you pursue your dreams, goals, and ambitions or otherwise affect your overall well-being?
The goal of this book is not to judge anyone but to create awareness about the potential risks of this trivialized and supposedly harmless drug so that whichever choice we make, at least we know we’re making a well-informed and educated choice to protect our brain, our young people’s brains, and to lovingly help free those who might already be oppressed by the burden of addiction.
