Cannabis / Marijuana  (dagga, hash, weed)

Marijuana is the most common illicit drug in South Africa and internationally. It is normally smoked either as dried leaves (grass) or the resin (hash) mixed with tobacco.It can also be eaten but the effect is not immediate so it’s hard to judge how much to take. Effects are amusement, enhanced sound and colour, but can also produce paranoia and even LSD-like hallucinations in high doses. Teenagers often think that marijuana is harmless but there is growing scientific evidence that using marijuana is bad for teenage brains. See the following links:
