Marijuana can be addictive. Not everyone who uses marijuana becomes addicted, but some users do develop signs of dependence. In 1999, more than 220,000 people entered drug treatment programs to kick their marijuana habit.

Answer #2

well its not really addicting persay. it has nothing in it chemicially that will make yyour body and mind addicted. what people get addicted to is the high and the different mindset you are in while high and you begin to always want to be in it. so accually I guess it is. considering I am very addicted… but I truely believe it is a lifestyle only other potheads could understand and I love it

Answer #3

As an ex weed smoker and a Certified Chemical Dependency Counselor I can tell you yes, weed can be addictive. When addiction exists, the drug use controls the individual rather than the individual controlling the drug use.

Answer #4

it is not that addicting… not compared to other behaviors/ drugs I’ve tried/ been involved with. I would be a lot happier if I was a mom and found out my kid was smoking weed then doin other stuff.

Answer #5

Answer #14

cannabis and marijuana arent physically addictive… they are mentally though…if a person wants to be high all the time and cant get through the day without smoking or drinking something then thats a mental addiction…alcoholics are an example… smoke all you want as long as you dont go overboard with it and make it your sole purpose in life…also stay away from heroine,cocaine and other drugs like meth or MDMA (extacy)

Answer #16

anything that changes the way you feel,think,and operate has the chance of being addicting

hell, people even get addicted to food

Answer #17

I’ve smoked it 2 times. I crave it sometimes, Like now, thats why I’m on this site to look at some stuff I dont know about it. I could quite easily have a puff right now, but I’m not going to. Maybe in a week or two, then I’ll wait another couple of months. Doing it like that, I dont think is bad at all. Letting it take over your life is. If you are strong-willed, I think you can control something. Think of it more as a treat, than a must-have.

Answer #18

I too was a pothead for 26 years. In that time pot ruled. I lost jobs, relationships, a marriage and a myriad of other opportunities because it was more important for me to get high than to live and create my life. I was existed in a fantasy world, the extent of which I never even realized till I got clean. I threw away everything I loved because I wanted to smoke weed. It that isn’t addiction I don’t know what is. Just as a side note, when I finally did break the addiction I spent two weeks in withdrawal, coming down.

Answer #19

weed isnt a drug it is better than drugs and no its not addicting but you can have an emotional attachment to it

lol dont listen to what people tell u, its all misleading information you need to do your own research and see for urself

These are some of the comments I have copied from a forum

-pharmaceuticals are known to kill more people than illegal drugs

-marijuana is the number 1 cash crop in the world it serves as a natural medicine and has many other uses thats why they prohibited it so big companies can make more profit thanks to “bad journalism”

-can also help aids patients, aids diminishes appetite have them smoke a joint and they regain their appetite counteracting the illness

-no one can die from smoking cannabis and has been no known deaths compared to everything else including alcohol, tobacco, etc..

I myself have asthma and smoking opens up my airways making it easier to breathe with no side effects when medically legalized in my state I look foward to becoming a patient for prescription marijuana. 12 states have already legalized it along with other countries in the world and more following my job is to educate people that are not aware of the plants uses


-I did most of my research through websites, books, magazines, and the news high times magazine etc..

  • theres more to it than just getting high and I believe legalizing it would make this a better world to live in

-God bless the whole crop!

  • and for people that dont smoke, you dont need to smoke it to support it

-all the better reason for the government to legalize.. couple reasons why it should be legalized: -will be removed from black market and stop empowering gang members -medical reasons -would be sold like alcohol, remember alcohol was once prohibited too (in stores away from children, have to be 21+) -would be a law that you cant drive while intoxicated on weed -prison population would lower (prisons are overcrowding with nonviolent offenders) -keep patients from being convicted -would provide millions of jobs for people -would make us an independent country (fuel, etc.., debt free america)

people with an addiction (including hard drugs) shouldnt be thrown in jail, they need help theres more people in jail with mental illnesses than there are in mental institutions

the list goes on

  • the War on Drugs is a failure, its a war on its own people. policies need to be changed we pay billions in taxpayers money to keep the war going and neither side is winning thats just a waste of our tax money I wonder what they do with all that money.. those greedy bastards just sell drugs back onto the street, you can even check urself on that there was a time when there was a cia operation transporting drugs overseas into america the government also provided Rick Ross with plenty of heroin to go around, course making money from it

the truth must be exposed, theyre dirty work must stop!

-Of course we can do something about it, we all just need to unite screw the federal government remember slavery? if no one stood up im pretty sure it would still be going on people were tortured, beaten, killed and thrown in jail but that didnt stop them standing up for their rights eventually slavery was abolished same with alcohol prohibition eventually became re-legalized

  • its like theres some kind of conspiracy going on I sense the government is up to no good and trying to control us. credit cards, money, and now they have chips that can be implanted in skin for uselful reasons but if in the wrong hands well were pretty much fuct they hiding the truth from us its dangerous to be right when the government is wrong they got theyre privacy but we dont. they want to know everything were doing on our leisure time

get up stand up!

  • marijuanas not anti-establishment because its illegal, its illegal because its anti-establishment

all facts stated have been double-checked and confirmed want to learn more? lets all make this a better place to live in!
