    A: The most common are delayed reaction time, impaired cognition, decreased performance on short-term memory function tests, worsening of chronic bronchitis (if marijuana is inhaled through smoke), decreased visuospatial discrimination (basically depth perception), paranoia, dry mouth, red eyes, nausea, increased appetite, possible worsening of depression, somnolence (sleepiness).
  8. Q: Does medical marijuana certification status show up on Arkansas Prescription Monitoring Program searches?

    A: No, it does not show up with the PMP. The most likely reason for this is that a doctor can say a person is medically fit to use marijuana, but the physician does not write an actual prescription.

  9. Q: What are cannabinoids?

    A: Cannabinoids act as neurotransmitters that participate in a diverse array of functions in the body. These functions are mediated by cannabinoid receptors that are present throughout multiple cell types and organ systems in the body.

    This is why cannabis can have so many different effects. THC and CBD are the two most important cannabinoids in marijuana. The main difference between them is that THC has a psychoactive effect, and CBD does not have any psychoactive properties.
