It can be mixed with tobacco and smoked (as here) or eaten. Marijuana contains a mood-altering (psycho- active) drug, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It indu- ces an initial feeling of stimulation followed by sedation and pleasant tranquility. Users may also have altered perceptions of time & space, height- ened perception and unusual reasoning patterns. Negative effects can include confusion and anxiety attacks. Frequent marijuana users may develop a psychological dependence on the drug.
