Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi There, thanks for asking. Smoking marijuana can affect your memory in long term. It could also brings loss of motivation and also depression. It enhances the risk of psychosis and also can increase the reflex time, so it is dangerous for driving. It does bring psychological dependence so many people find it difficult not to re-consume it. It can change the metabolism of many medications in the liver, so it may produce some problems in case you need to take any medications. I wish you a healthy life style and enjoyment from your life.
