  5. Can you become addicted to marijuana?
Asked: 2018-03-27 00:02:01
I think I am addicted to marijuana but I don't really know. My friends all tell me that it's not possible to develop an addiction to weed and they laugh when I bring up my addiction. Anybody out there know if you can become addicted to marijuana? like not just opinion but factually sound info from a reputable scientifically accredited source?

You can really have a physical dependence on marijuana unless you consider the munchies a physical dependence. But I think there can be a mental addiction to marijuana.

I feel the addiction definition according to reads as this: Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfuntion in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and or relief by substance use and other behaviors. Should be able to tell you if marujuana meets this criteria.

Anything not taken in moderation can be addictive to the right person. It is dependant on a load of variables all of which are specific to you as a person and the way that your brain works. You can be addicted to food, sex, coffee, love, soda, cheese literally anything if you have an addict mentality. Im sure you could find a medical journal somewhere online if you google the right words.

No that just doesnt make sense weed has never been addictive, unless maybe they put addictive stuff in the new fake marijuana pills so you keep buying them. I heard you dont even get the being high symptoms, whats the point of that

Funny I just saw someone else ask this question It is able to become addicted to marijuana although it is rare. Not so much a physical addiction, but defiantly a mental addiction. I know my son can go days without smoking pot if he is preoccupied by work or like when we went on vacation he didnt smoke for a whole week. But if he is left home alone he will smoke and not be motivated to get up and do much. And he always wants to eat a bunch of junk foods.

This seems like a question a pothead would ask. Instead of putting in the effort to find the information yourself you want other people to do the work for you and feed it to you on a platter. So just judging you hard on the paragraph you wrote here I would say yes you are for sure a pothead/Burnout/Weed junky. Your welcome!
