  • 2. What is marijuana?
    • Marijuana is a schedule I, controlled and dangerous drug.

    • (the list goes on and on).
  • 4. What are the effects of marijuana?
    • Once ingested, the effects soon start.
    • As the THC enters the brain, it causes the user to feel euphoric (“high”), caused by the brain cells releasing the chemical, dopamine.
    • The heart rate increases and the bronchial passages relax.
  • 5.
    • Marijuana usually causes:
    • - relaxation -disruption in attention
    • -reduced coordination -an altered sense of time
    • -reduced blood pressure
    • -sleepiness
  • 6.
    • In high doses, marijuana can cause:
        • -hallucinations
        • -delusions
        • -impaired memory
        • -disorientation
  • 7.
    • Users often feel, dry mouth, hunger, or the feeling that time is passing by very slowly.
    • Once the euphoria passes, the user may feel sleepy or depressed.
  • 8. WHERE DOES MARIJUANA COME FROM?
    • Marijuana is a natural drug that does grow wild in some areas of Oklahoma.
    • However, most wild marijuana is of a very low THC potency.
  • 9. Imported marijuana
    • In this area, most imported marijuana comes from Mexico.
    • It is smuggled across the border and into the U.S.
    • Amounts can range to tons at a time.
  • 10. Domestic marijuana
    • There are both indoor and outdoor grow operations that produce marijuana for Oklahoma.
    • Indoor grows or cultivation, using a hydroponic method, tend to increase the THC levels in marijuana drastically, which intensify the “high” using less marijuana.
  • 11.
    • As marijuana is purchased and sold, it eventually reaches the street level.
  • 12. HOW IS MARIJUANA INGESTED INTO THE BODY?
    • The most common method of ingestion is by smoking it, but it can be eaten.
  • 13. Marijuana cigarettes
    • Often called “joints”, marijuana is rolled into rolling papers and smoked.
    • “ Blunts” are cigars in which the tobacco has been replaced by marijuana.
  • 14. Pipes
    • Pipes can range from a wide variety of store bought designs, shapes, sizes, etc.
    • Pipes can be purchased at almost any “head shop”.
    • Pipes are rarely discarded by the user.
  • 15. Bongs/ Water pipes
    • Bongs are pipes that work by allowing the smoke to cool (through the water) before entering the lungs.
    • This enables the user to get more smoke into the lungs.
  • 16. Homemade pipes
    • Pipes can be made from almost any household item.
  • 17. HOW CAN I RECOGNIZE A MARIJUANA USER IN MY HOME?
    • Marijuana has a distinct aroma, much different then that of tobacco. Like cigarette users, the odor usually lasts a while and stays on their person.
    • Masking the odor can sometimes be indicated by excessive use of:
      • perfume/ cologne (on the body)
      • Incense and air freshener (in the room)
      • Air fresheners in the car/truck
  • 18. Intoxication
    • Similar to alcohol intoxication.
      • Slow or slurred speech
      • Slow body movements
      • Loss of balance
      • Delayed reaction
      • Forgetfulness
  • 19. The eyes
    • Glassy, red eyes
    • Dilated pupils
    • Use of or possession of eye moisturizing products
    • Tired or low eye lids
  • 20. Clothing
    • Marijuana users are often proud of their use and flaunt it on their clothing.
  • 21. Room decor
  • 22. Reading material
  • 23. Concealment methods
    • There are an increasing number of items sold that are used to conceal marijuana.
    • The top picture is a marker or high lighter with built in pipe. (the marker works)
    • The bottom is a wood box, with 2 sections, commonly called a “dug out”.
    • It is used to hold marijuana and a small pipe (commonly called a “bat” or “1 hitter”).
  • 24. Other things to look for:
    • Sleeping in late
    • Over-eating/ weight gain
    • Lack of motivation
    • Used sandwich baggies
    • Seeds/ stems
    • hand scales
    • Roach clips
  • 25. MORE TO THINK ABOUT
    • Marijuana is considered to be a “gateway” drug. This means that it is common for marijuana users to try other, more harmful, illegal drugs.
    • Marijuana is usually introduced during the early teen years by peer pressure from friends.
