Cannabis is the most used and popular "drug" worldwide. It is also an ancient drug that has been used throughout history for medical, magical, and pleasurable purposes.

I saw this one on facebook and I couldnt help but laugh at some of the misconceptions about marijuana....

One of the more ridiculous myths being circulated is that marijuana stays in your fat cells and can keep you high for months.

Even though they may have similar names, the psychoactive THC (Delta-9-THC) is different from the metabolites that your body breaks it down into in that the latter will not get you stoned. It is the metabolites that stay in your fatty cells and show up on drug tests.

Your body is depleted of Delta-9-THC only hours after ingestion.It is true that cannabis (like many other drugs) enters the body’s fat stores, and it is for this reason that it can be detected long after use, but that is the only part of this myth which is true.

The fact is, the psychoactive aspects of the stored cannabis are used up quickly and while the residue of the drug remains, it no longer has any effect on the person. Furthermore, the presence of THC in body fat is not harmful to the fat, the brain, or any other part of the body.
