The effects of taking marijuanaThere have been debates about the health hazards on its intake and  as a Marijuana smoker I had to do my research .Marijuana comes from the Cannabis plant, the flowers, seeds, leaves, and stems of the plant must be shredded and dried before they can be used. Most people who use marijuana , smoke it but it can be mixed into food, brewed into tea, or even used in a vaporizer.

Lung
When you inhale marijuana smoke into your lungs, it is quickly released into your bloodstream on its way to your brain and other organs. It takes a little longer to be absorbed when you eat or drink it.
