Narconon drug treatment addresses marijuana use. Addicts coming into Narconon commonly have used marijuana and this led them to other drugs as well or even multiple drug usage. Although marijuana is often pushed as being mild, its toxic effects damage the lungs, nerves and brain.
Technically, marijuana contains THC which is a neurotoxin. This means marijuana is a poison that damages the brain and nerves.
