Be aware of false information regarding cannabis
Contact: Public Health Center, General Planning Division – Phone: 04-7167-1255
The use of cannabis is the most widespread drug abuse in the world. There is false information circulating on the internet, erroneously stating that cannabis has no negative effect on the body. However, abuse of cannabis causes hallucinations, memory problems and a decrease in learning ability. It is important that each of us correctly understands the danger of illegal drugs, and that we build a society where people do not get involved in drug abuse.
