I love smoking weed, but why does it have to be addictive?

I think its addictive because of the symptoms being high. It makes you feel really euphoric and it always helped me relax when I needed to. My mom always used in place of her antidepressants because she swore that it was a more natural alternative to pharmaceuticals. I dont really need to smoke it, but I definitely enjoy it.

That kind of depends on your addiction definition. Marijuana is one of the most abused illegal drugs in the US, which means that people will continue to use it whether it threatens their freedom or not. Even though it doesnt really work on your opioid receptors or have the same impact that stimulants do, marijuana really builds up a strong psychological addiction. And yes, it can lead to a physical addiction when its used over a long period of time.

Marijuana is addictive because it changes your perception. Anything that consistently changes the way you see the world can become normal for you. When you dont feel normal, youre going to continue using marijuana to try and keep that feeling. I guess its kind of like the whole psychological addiction thing.

Marijuana is addictive because when your not high you can be restless and have a depressed appetite, but when you are high you are calm and relaxed and it makes you hungry.

I read a study that said that 30% of marijuana users have some type of marijuana use disordermeaning that they have issues with using too much and stopping when they need to. A lot of people dont think that it causes a physical dependence, but it can make you paranoid and cause you serious insomnia if you stop cold turkey. It really depends on why you used it in the first place. Marijuana is addictive because it messes with chemicals in your brain the same as any other drug. Just because people tell you its a great thing doesnt make it healthy or safe.
