Recognizing Alcohol & Drug Addiction : Symptoms of Marijuana Addiction

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.


  1. Okay, let's get this straight. It's spelled Marijuana and it's not even called that, it's weed, don't get it mixed up with the word pot. Pot is for old people to reference it, weed is if you smoke weed. Big difference. It is NOT a gateway drug, the only reason it's concidered one is because the government makes it out to be a horrible drug. It's not. The gateway theory is only a mindstate. If weed was legal, it wouldn't be a gateway drug anymore than cigarettes or alchohol. Don't be fucking dumb

  2. i'm sorry, but EVERYONE i know used alcohol first…even @ 14 years old && younger…so, i believe alcohol to be a gateway, not mary jane.

  3. drymouth? increased appetite? this guy is confusing short term effects with long term usage… twat… smoke weed everyday

  4. is this supposed to be a guide for parents? why would you be trying to tell if someone does marijuana? if they dont want you to know then you shouldnt invade their privacy, if its meant for parents, then throw out your gateway drug theory because its been proven incorrect. then kids under 18 really shouldnt do any substance even though me saying that is hypocritical

  5. he forgot so much stuff

    empty dorito bags stashed down the couch, can only water plants 5 metres from ur house now, sudden interest in teletubbies, developed taste in instantly consumable food and of course, an addiction to youtube

  6. @lordinfamous15234 i could state the INTELLIGENT reasons why marijuana is not only, OK, but that if it were legal, the economy would practically be back on it feet because in cali not only is marijuana the number one cash crop, but its more popular than grapes!!!! look it up and use google before responding is a stupid manner

  7. Haha fuckin idiot is tryin to "prevent" the use of weed and they can't even spell it…yea that's par for the course

  8. "John DePalma, born and raised in, Queens, NY, has been a recovering alcohol and drug addict for over 17 years"

    He definitely hasn´t tried marijuana for sure, what a dumbass liar.

  9. "Smoke pot and drink alcohol, smoke pot and do hallucinogenics, smoke pot and do stimulants."

    Fuck you dude, that sounds like an AWESOME night.

  10. Fucking white loser .. when he was a teen he was a fucking nerd that had any fun .. fucking ignorant!!

  12. It's very liberating to feel free from a habit that does more bad than good. If you're in this group, you might want to quit or give it a break for a while, just to see how different you feel.
