A physical and psychological dependence on marijuana. There is a large debate on whether this exists. While marijuana is not naturally addictive nor contains ingredients which make it addictive like nicotine, it is possible to become dependent on marijuana to get you through a regular day. It may also become a daily task that you cannot live without doing. You can become addicted to anything. It may not be as severe and addiction as other things such as crack, tobacco and alcohol, but it still exists.
Rick: "Hold on man. I need to take a hit of my blunt."
Bob: "Man you need to 'take a hit' 5 times a day, every day. I think you might be a victim of Marijuana Addiction."
Rick: "Shut up stupid! You can't get addicted to weed."
Bob: "Just because marijuana doesn't have nicotine doesn't mean you can't get addicted to it."
Rick: "Oh. Well, I'm still going to take a hit."
A make-believe condition invented by the pharmaceutical industry and the right wing politicians that they lobby and make contributions to.This "condition" was created in an effort to scare people into doing their drugs, which actually are addictive. If the multipurpose cure-all cannibis were decriminalized, the pharmaceutical industry would tank.
Marijuana addiction is crippling our Middle American communities.
Two words that contradict each other. See oxymoron
Marijuana addiction. Tom Petty
makes bad music. Faucet ass
is an enjoyable experience. What do these statements have in common?
it doesnt exist. period.
everyone who says marijuana addiction is real is a dumb/ignorant piece of shit.
Actually Mr. Lament, your a dumbass. I can't think of any pot head i know, including yours truely, that cant quit the shit when they need to. ive never heard of anyone suckin dick for weed man, have you? maybe there is someone out there like that, but everyone knows that a true addiction is when you'll give everythang up for one thing, not just "ohh, i want some weed."
pothead and addict are two complete things, one smokes weed alot, the other will whore themselves... there is no such thing as a marijuana addiction, and if you believe there is, then go look at your neighborhood crackhead... THATS addiction
It's bullshit. You CANNOT be addicted to cannabis
Everyone who thinks it's addicting has never chronically smoked.
There's is a HUGE difference between being addicted, and just not wanting to stop.
It's not like any other drug, or even tobacco where it's hard to quit.
Most people don't want to, but if you ever want to stop smoking pot, you'll have absolutely NO PROBLEM doing so.
Authority Figure: Don't smoke cannabis, you'll form a Marijuana Addiction!
Smoker: Fuck you!
A common argument used by protestors of marijuana and by those who are unwilling to let go of the lies they've been fed their entire lies. The ignorant ones will say, "Pot is in the same group as crack and heroin and computer duster and will make the user suffer withdrawals," and what the fuck have you. The more educated ones, while still quite ignorant, will say "Well, while it's not physically addictive, it is PSYCHOLOGICALLY addictive, and so you should stay away from it."more...
And that's why I became a part of the anti-fingernails campaign. What's our cause? Well, the habit of biting fingernails, while by no means physically addictive, can be psychologically addictive. Fingernails should therefore be made illegal.
But wait, masturbation can also be psychologically addictive... and so can gambling... and shopping and facebook and video games and reading and working and over-eating and under-eating and sex... All of these things should absolutely be made illegal, don't you agree?
The truth is, people have been smoking pot since AT LEAST 3000 B.C., and in the last five thousand years, no one has overdosed on pot, no one has died or been hospitalized from severe withdrawal from pot, nor has anyone's body has gone through ANY withdrawal symptoms from pot.
Sure, it's psychologically addictive. But is it dangerous in this way? I suppose you can judge for yourself. As for me, I've smoked pot every fucking day from early December to late May, and I'm doing fine now (in late April).
