Letters: Pot has no value

Pot is insidious and despicable says letter writer

Marijuana is insidious and despicable. It has no value as it is a proven fact that any amount of this drug will start negative changes in the parts of the brain that is needed for bonding and mood control.

World re-nown Dr. Daniel G Amen, MD, Psychiatrist, has done extensive research and treated many thousands of people of all ages for problems associated with the brain, many of them caused by the use of controlled and uncontrolled drugs. He is licensed in nuclear brain imaging. The deep limbic system at the center of the brain is the bonding and mood control centre. The prefrontal cortex, the front tip of the brain changes by the use of marijuana which starts the process of making bad decisions. It therefore can be the result of poor control of oneself easily advancing into addiction to the drug affecting one system of the brain, which affects another system, and on it goes as long as this drug as well as other drugs are being used.

It brings on lack of interest, motivation and energy  changing perfusion patterns of the brain.

Social withdrawal will result if students begin using the drug and dropping out of school is most often the result.

The marijuana brain looks as though areas are eaten away and affects language and learning. Very few people leave once they enter the gate to most possible addiction. It is closed behind them so rarely do they come back out. They go on to heavier use and other drugs.

When your brain works right so can a person but, if  your brain doesn’t work right neither can the person which begins the downgrading of society values. Some people are under the cloud of misconception about its use. Healthy choices are the best ways to enjoy health.
