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."
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.
Smoker: Fuck you!
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).
Me: "Sure I will. Are your teeth yellow because of your coffee or your cigarettes?"
Tool: "... Both?"
