Marijuana Use Disorder

Smoking more than intended, craving marijuana, or trying to quit unsuccessfully may mean you have an unhealthy dependence on the drug. In addition to trouble with handling everyday responsibilities, people who have marijuana use disorder may also be at a higher risk for other negative consequences, like issues with inattention, memory, and learning new things.

People who use marijuana excessively also become more and more tolerant to it over time, which means it takes more of the drug or higher concentrations to achieve the high they seek. Of course, this only perpetuates the problem. If you or someone you love is struggling with excessive marijuana use, our team at Focus can help.
