Dangers of Combining Marijuana and Lortab

Dangers of Combining Marijuana and LortabMarijuana is often seen as harmless, with little to no short-term effects. Because of this, many people combine it with other drugs to produce a more euphoric high, or to enhance marijuana’s side effects. Lortab treats severe to chronic pain and can be a cough suppressant. It can also serve non-medical, recreational purposes as it has a pleasant taste, powerful effects and prolonged period of action.

Combining these drugs presents some serious risks that may require immediate medical attention. Furthermore, an addiction to both of these substances will be tougher to break than an addiction to only one of these substances. Do not attempt recovery on your own: seek the help of medical professionals when you want to get clean from these drugs.

  • Retain normality
  • Cool down
  • Calm down
