A really dangerous drug. Known to many

by Colin
(Sweden)

Hello to who is reading,
My name is Colin, I am from Sweden. My Friend suggested me to share my story of being a drug survivor. I grew up in Stockholm with my buddy during the 1980's. I experimented with Marijuana and sometimes it was laced with other drugs. I was almost out of school when I took this. I have strong regrets on taking these drugs like my friend who has posted his story earlier.

Marijuana is full of cover ups by many potheads saying like it ain't gonna kill you. Me and my friend almost died because of it because it made our hearts race and made us burn out temporarily (memory loss; the normal symptom for marijuana use; THC particles enter the brain and can be there for 5-10 days and memory gradually comes back overtime, some people may loose their memory permanently).

Marijuana hurt me and my friend. Our lungs are practically destroyed and we still have difficulty remembering things like our childhood, events, peoples phone numbers and addresses, trouble typing or writing, or even answering the most simple questions, which can be challenging or struggling for us.

I am only 46 and I have that many health problems because of weed (I am even lucky that I saw 46 candles on my cake). My advice to anyone who currently smokes weed is do you want to be burnt out for the rest of your days ? Do you want to be in the hospital ? Do you want to live ?
or Do you want to be involved with the wrong crowd ?

It's all up to you but I am strongly against it and don't recommend it. I am glad that I survived and you can survive too if you quit NOW !
