This Infographic Shows All the Good (and Bad) Ways Marijuana Can Affect the Body

With all the research and scientific studies being conducted on marijuana, it can be difficult to remember all the ways marijuana can affect the body. You've probably been looking for one handy-dandy chart that shows all the ways cannabis can affect the human body.

Notice that there are a lot more positives than negatives on the chart.

Of course not all of these effects are universal. Many people say that smoking marijuana helps reduce their anxiety, and yet it's listed as a negative on this chart. So, as with everything, make sure you do your research before partaking in any cannabis products, especially when it comes to marijuana and your sex drive.
