According to studies performed by the Office of Applied Studies, National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 2003 and 2004, the total number of people ages 12 and older in the state of Missouri who used marijuana in the past year is 557,000. Of the 557,000, 79,000 were between the ages of 12 and 17. 198,000 past year marijuana users were of ages 18 to 25 and 280,000 were 26 and older. Total use of marijuana in the past month, according to the same survey, by people ages 12 and older is 316,000. 37,000 were ages 12 to 17, 117,000 were 18-25 and 163,000 were age 26 or older.
Synthetic marijuana use in Missouri was banned from the DEA but that has not stopped drug dealers because they are always one step ahead of the law and finding ways around it. Synthetic marijuana is any plant vegetation that is sprayed with dangerous chemicals. The side effects are 10-100 times more potent than natural marijuana and is easier to access than other drugs. It causes rapid heart rates, inability to talk, seizures, hallucinations, brain damage, heart attacks and death. K2 and these other synthetic drugs can still be purchased on-line, in gas stations and convenience stores even though the state has banned them.
There are marijuana rehab and treatment centers in Missouri that some like to go to stop their substance use. They donâ€™t realize that they will be labeled as powerless, weak, sick, as an addict and that most are religion based. They end up dedicating themselves to a lifetime of recovery and meetings. If these programs have not worked for you and you are tired from constantly going in and out of rehabs then there are non-12 step programs and non treatment programs that will show you how you can live your life substance free.
Many Missouri Marijuana treatment centers will make you believe that the only solution to your problems is in fact Marijuana treatment. This is not true. People overcome Marijuana every day without treatment and without addiction professionals dictating how their lives should be lived.
