  5. Can you get addicted to marijuana?
Asked: 2018-04-12 00:57:59
Thought a lot about getting a medical marijuana card to help with managing PTSD symptoms I have, however I don’t want to get addicted and be desperate over something if it can be avoided.

Any drug that causes symptoms of dependency like withdrawal and/or cravings is addictive. Marijuana causes these symptoms in so many people. Also, PTSD is manageable through alternative treatments.

You can overdose on crack but it is rarely fatal. Actually only around 10% of so-called overdose deaths from crack happen from immediate organ failure. Normally death happens after extensive damage to the central nervous system and actually takes a few years of abuse. The drug wears down the heart and lungs, so eventually it will kill you completely, but actual one-time overdosing is rare.

Crack cocaine is a lethal drug, and it can kill you even on first try but crack overdoses normally happen in conjunction with another substance, such as alcohol. Sometimes the system is so impaired that the heart, lungs and kidneys give up, if youre a long-time user.

Crack overdoses do happen, yes. Your tolerance builds up so you need more and more to get the same feeling and this can lead to taking a fatal dose, particularly because your heart and lungs have been significantly damaged through using it. If you have taken a crack overdose, get medical help immediately. If you want to come off crack, its best to get yourself into a rehab center so you can manage it with help.

You, me or anybody can get addicted to marijuana.

You can overdose on crack, yes, particularly if you are a new or infrequent user. You dont know what that stuff will do to your heart and it could also make you have a stroke. If your pulse starts going too fast or slow, your breathing is off and youre sweating excessively, you need to get medical attention immediately.
