For centuries humans have been ingesting substances that alter the way our minds work, whether it is legal drugs like caffeine (can’t live without it personally), alcohol and nicotine or drugs from the illegal range of which there are hundreds.
Of the many illegal drugs on the market, the most commonly used one is marijuana, it has dozens of different names; you might know it as cannabis, weed, dope, pot, green, grass, or wacky-backy (if you still live in the 60s).
It is a drug that is talked about a lot, some argue that it should be legalized others say that despite the reputation it has for being ‘harmless’ – it can still do a lot of damage to the human mind. Pretty much everyone (unless you live in the bible-belt or a Quaker village) has tried it or knows someone who has.
Now those intelligent folks at AsapScience have put together this interesting little explanation about marijuana and how it affects the brain. Definitely worth watching if you want a better understanding of the drug!
