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.

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research about this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I'm very glad to see such magnificent information being shared freely out there.

    Совсем юные и созрелые дамочки вовсе абсолютно
    не знают никакой границы.
    Эти дамочки имеют все шансы отсасывать пенисы приглянувшихся молодых
    людей прямиком на публике.
    Все эти милашки вставляют члены максимально глубоко в глотки,
    а затем с наслаждением познают аппетитную сперму.
    Темноволосые и белобрысые куклы снимают трусики рядом с камерой в интересах того чтобы
    потрахаться в ароматные дырочки и упругие жопки.
    Этакий контент заводит ничуть
    не меньше нежели порно видео.
    Быть уверенным в этом вы непременно сможете прямо немедленно.
    Заграничное и фото продемонстрирует
    вам лично, что на самом деле действительный
    безудержный оргазм. Ни в коем случае не упустите шанс поймать реальный кайф и передернуть свой член.
