Even though marijuana is becoming more legal and does possess medical uses, health concerns do exist:
Marijuana affects the brain. The short-term effects include disrupting short-term memory and decision-making abilities. Long-term use raises the risk of developing depression, anxiety and paranoia. Daily marijuana use may also worsen existing symptoms of bipolar disorder among people who already have this mental health condition.
Because marijuana makes the heart beat faster and causes blood pressure to drop, it has the potential to increase the risk of stroke and heart disease.
Marijuana smoke contains many of same substances found in tobacco smoke which can:
harm lung tissue and cause scarring.
lead to a greater risk of bronchitis.
cause respiratory problems such as a daily cough or lung infections with long-term smokers.
Smoking large amounts of marijuana on a regular basis reduces bone density making users more prone to fractures and putting them at a greater risk of osteoporosis later in life.
The long-term use of high-potency cannabis can cause a rare condition called Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome (CHS). Users experience severe nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. A concern with CHS is that a person becomes so dehydrated that the kidneys shut down. Hot showers temporarily relieve the symptoms, but the only known treatment is discontinuing marijuana use.

Pastor and Congregation:
Thank you for being so thoughtful.
Thank you for the use of the church for the graduation party. We’ve had so many important family events there—baptisms, confirmations, birthday celebrations – it was special to have this there as well. This has been an emotional time for my family—it isn’t easy to watch your baby prepare to leave and become a grown up. But I know she has a strong foundation in Christ and lots of people praying for continued success.
