Illinois is below the nation-wide average for past month and past year marijuana use. However, marijuana remains one of the most popular drugs in Illinois. It was second only to heroin as a cause for substance abuse treatment, according to a 2010 report by SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration). 17, 515 people were admitted for treatment for marijuana dependence. The National Institute of Drug Abuse warns that chronic marijuana use, whether through smoking or ingesting through tea or food, can have a negative impact on your health and lifestyle. This includes memory loss, coordination problems, difficulty with logical and clear thinking and problem solving. This can affect your ability to study, to work, and to carry out normal and healthy interactions. The chances are, if you are a chronic marijuana user, you are functioning below regular intellectual capacity.
