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.

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.
