While marijuana addiction in Alabama is lower than the nation-wide average, it remains the number one drug used in Alabama. According to SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration), Alabama ranks in the ten lowest states for monthly and yearly marijuana use amongst youth and adults. However, marijuana use is so wide-spread nationally (in 2009, 16 million Americas claimed to have used marijuana), that it remains a problem in Alabama. Regular use of marijuana, whether through smoking or ingesting through tea or food, can have a significant negative impact on your lifestyle. The National Institute of Drug Abuse states that regular users can have memory loss, and difficulty with coordination, thinking and problem-solving. If you are a chronic marijuana user, the likelihood is that you are permanently functioning below your intellectual capacity as a result of your marijuana use. This affects your ability to work, your relationships with others, and your ability to have a normal, functioning life.
There is a perception in society today that marijuana is not a dangerous drug. In 2010, 15.8% of Alabama’s youth believed marijuana to be harmless. As with any drug, chronic use of it negatively affects your life and your health. Marijuana dependence and use are in the top three causes of Alabamians seeking treatment at a substance abuse facility. You are not alone.
