Cannabis, a soft drug?
Hashish is the most consumed ilegal drug in Spain, specially among younger people. Hashish and marijuana have a considerable presence in the school community. One out of every three youngsters uses this drug.
This consumption starts to decrease after 13-16 years old, since this substanceB works as a bridge towards the use of other drugs.
The worst problem the use of cannabis presents is that it is trivialised and is associated to ecology, solidarity and the search for spirituality, while its devastating effects on health are minimised.
The daily use of hashish slows down the psychological functioning of the smoker. It causes short-term memory loss, learning difficulties and schizophrenia. It also reduces testosterone production in males and causes hormonal alterations that affect the menstrual cycle and the libido in females. It increases the risk of sterility, both in males and females. There have also been reports of myocardial infarctions in apparently healthy consumers.
When is its treatment effective?
The treatment of the cannabis addiction includes, above all, prevention and reeducation techniques. They train about the drug and its meanings, and new lifestyles and values. Despite withdrawal effects having a marked psychological, rather than physical, component; it is an addiction to take seriously and to be treated by prepared professionals.
It does not matter if it is psychological or physical. I jut know I feel great.
