alex625 answered Sunday April 19 2009, 3:16 pm: Marijuana decreases pressure in the eyes and increases blood flow. When this happens, the arteries in the eye-ball expand (due to decreased pressure). These areteries, especially when expanded, are visible in the white portion of the eye and make the eye appear "bloodshot" or red.
This very result (decrease of pressure in the eye) is the primary reason marijuana is used to treat glaucoma. Glaucoma is the condition where there is excessive pressure in the eye. In some patients, the pressure can become so severe that it causes damage to the retinal nerve, ultimately damaging the patient's vision. Marijuana decreases this pressure.

jsavage answered Saturday March 31 2007, 9:01 pm: Oh my god, you guys are all retards. If you smoke anything it will make your eyes red, especially if you cough a lot. Marijuana also dilates the blood vessels in your eyes, this is where where the color red is coming from. As for dehydrating you, that's complete bs. Dry mouth is just the mouth's reaction to the smoke from MJ. Your mucus membranes stop producing as much mucus as normal so your mouth gets dry. Your eyes get dry because your tear ducts also "relax" and produce at a slower rate. Not because you get dehydrated. To get dehydrated the water already in you has to leave your body. Completely. Like through sweating. [ jsavage's advice column | Ask jsavage A Question ]
xxAdviceGirlxx answered Friday August 20 2004, 12:21 pm: OK! When you have weed it gets into your blood stream and when it goes through your bloodvessels which leads to the eyes and irritates them so they turn red.... I also think it's because it dehydrates you, that's why you get cotton mouth and that's why your eyes get red because they are dry...

That's why you don't smoke it! Cuz it messes you up in all these unknown ways! Why does Michael Jackon look like a girl? Why can't Britney Spears sing a song like a normal un-skanky female singer? Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?! It's obvious!!! [ WearAName's advice column | Ask WearAName A Question ]
