What Is Marijuana Abuse?

Marijuana abuse occurs when an individual uses marijuana regardless of the negative repercussions to their health, family life, and career. Continued use of marijuana leads to addiction, forcing the individual to use the substance to start their day and stay awake. Marijuana use is a substance that leads you down a dangerous path, seeking a high from other types of substances.
