Q. I heard that AIDS will be more prevalent in drug addicts. Will addiction to drugs lead to AIDS? Will AIDS virus enter into them without sexual relation? I consume Ganja or marijuana. I did not have sex with any woman. Will I get AIDS?
Ans: HIV will be transmitted only through specific activities. Most commonly, people get or transmit HIV through sexual behaviors and needle or syringe use. If mother has AIDS then child will get. Expect that it will not be transmitted by any act. Drug addicts are used to have unprotected sex. They take some drugs with the same syringe in a group. If one person has then others will get AIDS. If needles are not used one will not get HIV with drugs. Since you don’t have sex with others and did not use same syringe, you will not get AIDS. However ganja addiction is not good. It will spoil your health. Just like AIDS, ganja is also very dangerous.
