That comes from all of the negative effects that start to happen and make consistent marijuana users, or potheads, become ditzy, lazy or confused. Also, smoking marijuana is bad for your lung health, just like smoking cigarettes. Marijuana use contributes to developing lung cancer and other lung diseases. It also causes a cough and breathing problems. Many potheads and pot smokers dont believe that marijuana is addictive. However, if you smoke marijuana enough, you will begin to feel withdrawal symptoms like sleeplessness and irritability and crave marijuana to get over these feelings.
