What the Yuck: Could weed affect my work?

Too embarrassed to ask your doctor about sex, body quirks, or the latest celeb health fad? In a regular feature and a new book, "What the Yuck?!," Health magazine medical editor Dr. Roshini Raj tackles your most personal and provocative questions. Send 'em to Dr. Raj at whattheyuck@health.com.

Q: I sometimes smoke pot on the weekend. Can this affect my work during the upcoming week?

A: It sure can. Although the immediate effects of marijuana typically last only one to three hours, frequent users can have a hard time concentrating and processing information, even days later.

Marijuana has other risks, too: It contains more carcinogens than tobacco and can cause the same respiratory issues - possibly even cancer.

Bottom line: Your weekend habit could have consequences way worse than just making you feel spaced out at work.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

    At this time it seems like Drupal is the best blogging platform available right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
