Impact of marijuana smoke inhalation on normal and stressed rats
1. The administration of marijuana fumes to rats subjected to electrical stress brought about a diminution in the level of protein, DNA and RNA with a decrease in urea content of the brain.
2. The chronic inhalation of marijuana fumes increased the excretion of 5-HIAA and VMA in the urine of stressed rats.
3. Chromic marijuana treatment in rats undergoing shock trauma produced increased depletion of chromaffin granules and dilation of blood vessels in the adrenal medulla and also produced degenerative changes in the testes of stressed rats.
