Best Answer

The psychoactive ingredient in marijuana is THC. In small doses, marijuana promotes feelings of euphoria because of its ability to release dopamine in the brain. In larger doses, it can cause hallucinations and paranoia. A marijuana cigarette contains 50% more tar than a regular cigarette, which increases the chances of users getting lung cancer. It mimics the sex hormone estrogen, which can cause infertility and decreased testicle size.
