Marijuana Effects: Why Marijuana Gives You the Munchies

June 24, 2017

My way to stay away from sugar, candy, and all type of junk food is by, simply, not buying them.

Scrutinizing specific behaviors and making evaluations on benefit against cost in money, time, effort, stress, or risk to our health. If it’s a substance that we’re speaking of, is there a risk of dependence? Are we using it to enhance or escape our realities? What’s the physical as well as mental toll?
