I just saw this question asked on findrehabcenters.org someone there states that any drug that causes symptoms of dependency like withdrawal and or cravings is addictive. Marijuana causes these symptoms in so many people. They also suggest finding alternative treatments if you were looking to use marijuana for things like ptsd. Alternative treatments could include homeopathy, or herbal supplements. Acupuncture has been shown to help with pain, anxiety, anger, depression and fear. U used acupuncture after experiencing a dramatic event in my life. Along with changing my diet to heal my gut which helped balance my mood.

If you look up the addiction definition it says addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. I for one read this as weed not being addictive, but I do believe for some everyday heavy uses they fit this category, and are truly addicted to weed.
