WHY IS MARIJUANA USE ADDICTIVE?

An important article about the issue of marijuana and addiction from PreventionPlusWellness:

Marijuana use has been shrouded in myth and misconception for centuries.  In our lifetime, this situation is being exacerbated by a growing marijuana industry stemming from the legalization of recreational and medical cannabis use.

The marijuana industry markets cannabis use not just to have fun and socialize, but as part of a hip lifestyle, and to self-medicate everything from anxiety to low energy.  It also portrays cannabis consumption as innocuous and as normal a part of daily life as having a glass of wine with dinner.

One of the more frequently espoused marijuana myths is that its use is not addictive like other drugs.  Others think that addiction from marijuana is possible, but that it is very rare.  Still others think that if marijuana use does become addictive, it’s easy to just stop using it.

Each of these beliefs is incorrect.  Click here to read more…
