Cannabis: A Comprehensive Review of Its Short-Term and Long-Term Impact on Health and Society

The abstract presents a critical view of cannabis legalization, highlighting the potential risks associated with its use. It emphasizes that despite the common perception of cannabis as a low-risk drug, there is substantial evidence of its negative impact on mental and physical health, including addiction and impaired driving. The document acknowledges the therapeutic properties of cannabidiol (CBD), but warns against the high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) found in recreational cannabis, which can be harmful. It suggests that while CBD has medical benefits, the presence of THC in “medicinal cannabis” poses risks. The conclusion is that more scientific research is needed to fully understand the safety of cannabis, and that any discussions about its legalization should be informed by scientific data on its adverse effects. The abstract advocates for a cautious approach to the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes and argues against its legalization for recreational use without robust evidence of safety.
