Typically smoked through homemade cigarettes or pipes, Marijuana comes from the plant cannabis sativa. When ingested, over 1,600 chemicals enter the body. Marijuana produces a “high” generated by the chemical Delta9-THC, which then numbs the central nervous system, reducing ambition and the sense of responsibility. Though there is little information on the overall effects of these 1,600 chemicals, THC is stored in the fatty portions of the body. This means that as the body burns fat, more is released into the system. THC is not water-soluble which causes the chemical to remain in the body for an extended period of time, affecting the liver, reproductive organs, and brain.
