Signs & Symptoms of Marijuana Abuse

Warning signs and symptoms of an addiction to marijuana.

Signs of Marijuana Use

Marijuana is usually smoked but as it has become more and more popular there are new ways to use the drug more readily available. When it is smoked it can be rolled into a “joint,” similar to how tobacco is in a cigarette, some users make “blunts” by opening up cigars, taking out the tobacco, and replacing it with marijuana. Joints and blunts can also be laced with other drugs such as PCP or cocaine. There are also pipes sometimes called “pieces” that users can smoke it out of and bongs. It can also be mixed with food to create edibles  such as hard candies, cookies, brownies, candy bars, or brewed as a tea. Hashish or hash can be found in flat cakes, amber or brown oil in small glass bottles.
