Recognizing Alcohol & Drug Addiction : Symptoms of Marijuana Addiction

Hi, my name is John DePalma from New York
City on behalf of Expert Village I’m here today to help you recognize drug and alcohol
addiction. Alright, we’re going to talk about marijuana. As we’ve discussed before it’s
a gateway drug, so many times when you’re using for symptoms in marijuana use they might
be combined with symptoms of other drugs. A lot of times people will smoke pot and drink
alcohol, smoke pot and do hallucinogenics, smoke pot and do stimulants. But two of the
main symptoms to look for in marijuana usage are increased appetite and dry mouth. So if
anyone you know has a fluctuating appetite and constant dry mouth is a very good chance
they might be using marijuana. So this is definitely something to watch out for and
they might have some stains on their fingers as well, if they’re rolling joints and smoking
them and obviously we discussed before things to look out for around the house, pipes, rolling
paper, things of that nature.
