Unlike natural marijuana, spice is sprayed with chemicals that can be toxic to the human body. Such toxicity, can produce dangerous side effects like tachycardia, which is an unusually fast resting heart rate (Camp, RN). Other reports have shown additional side effects include excessive sweating, agitation, inability to speak, aggression, and restlessness. These side effects are not the norm when natural marijuana is used (Gupta). Patients treated by medical professionals say that patients experienced short-term loss of consciousness, paranoia, hallucinations, tremors, and even seizures.
Jessa Thomson Professor Stillwell USem 102 CTR 4 February 1, 2011 ToT CTR 4 Summary: This chapter in Trick or Treatment describes the pros and cons of herbal medicine. Many people resort to herbal medicine to treat their different ailments. But some of the treatments cause more harm than good. For example: St. John’s Wort can treat mild to moderate depression, but for someone with severe depression or a mental illness it does no good and could even make symptoms worse. Personal Statement: I liked the tables in the book that showed whether or not the herbs/ natural medicine were shown to have a good effect on what they were supposed to.
In fact, it is ADDED to anti-freeze to reduce it's toxicity if ingested. Nicotine Causes Cancer Nicotine has the same effect on your body as caffeine. The toxins and and carcinogens are created when tobacco leaves are burned, changing their chemical makeup. Holding tobacco leaves/concentrations against soft tissue for extended periods of time is of great concern as well. Vaping Is As Bad As Smoking Liquid nicotine does not contain the over 4,000 chemicals created when burning tobacco cigarettes.
There are strengths and weakness of the diabetic clinic that Ann attended. If Ann does attend she is able to keep her diabetes at a low level her health will be improved. She will need less care with in her care plan. The more that Ann keeps her diabetes controlled the less dependent she will be. Due to the fact that she is being monitored and no further NHS actions are need such as a leg amputation the NHS will save money and it can be used on those that need it.
DEBATE PAPER CONS OF LEGALIZING RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA NILSA NUNEZ BCOM/275 03/16/2015 MARK TROLLINGER In this week Team â€œAâ€ debated the cons associated with the legalization of recreational Marijuana. The majority of the disadvantages discussed between team members were facts related to the health and mental side effects of its prolonged use. According to an article by the Harvard public school of health, some health experts worry about the personal and public health impacts that may come with more widespread use of the drug. Dr. Eden Evins, a Harvard psychiatry professor, and director of the Center for Addiction Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital explained the biochemical effects of cannabis on the central nervous system. Professor Evins warned that smoking marijuana overstimulates naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors in the brain, which areÂ located in high-density areas that influence memory, thinking, concentration, movement, coordination and sensory and time perception.
It has been studied that marijuana is addictive, a “gateway drug”; leads to harder drug use, interferes with fertility, impairs driving ability, and injures the lungs, immune system, and brain (medicalmarijuana.procon.org). Marijuana is well known to be able to induce anxiety disorders, including panic attacks. More rarely, when used by the wrong individuals, it may serve as a trigger for psychotic states, including
The studies indicate that marijuana provides symptomatic relief for a number of medical conditions, including nausea and vomiting, stimulating appetite, promoting weight gain, and diminishing intraocular pressure from glaucoma. There is also evidence that smoked Marijuana 6 marijuana and/or THC reduces muscle spasticity from spinal cord injuries and multiple sclerosis, and diminishes tremors in multiple sclerosis patients. Patients and physicians have also reported that smoked marijuana provides relief from migraine headaches, depression, seizures, insomnia and chronic pain, among other conditions (Normal
Throat and lung infections, such as bronchitis, are common in long-term heavy users. Lung capacity and efficiency are significantly decreased. Increases in abnormalities in the lungs and other large airways have been observed, and are due to the additive effects of smoke on tissue . According to a 1997 study by Tashkin and Colleges “Heavy habitual marijuana smoking does not cause an accelerated decline in FEV1 with age.” However a study by Sherrill, Krzyzanowski, Bloom, and Lebowitz found the exact opposite. In comparison with smoked tobaccos, marijuana is much more obstructive of lung airways than tobacco, but has a smaller risk for cancer than that of tobacco cigarettes, something that is likely due to nicotine’s absorption and retention of radioactive compounds in fertilizers used in today’s farms.
(Bonander). Numerous studies have established that cannabinoids actually help reduce pain and other distressing symptoms (Zablock, Aidala, Hansell, and Raskin White 65-79). Evidence has been found linking medical marijuana to the treatment of appetite loss, glaucoma, nausea, vomiting, spasticity, and weight loss. Marijuana has also been used for treating arthritis, dystonia, insomnia, seizures, and Tourette’s syndrome (Earleywine). Some chemotherapy regimens are notorious for causing terrible bouts of nausea and vomiting.
