Every pothead I've ever met is a complete loser and their lives revolve around smoking pot. Sure there are people that can do it without being addicted but the vast majority of "potheads" I've known can only go a few days without it. It may not have the same addictive qualities as heroin but it's addictive. I've been around it too much to say it isn't.

But what studies show that? There are no scientific studies that show that marijuana is addictive, has a high rate of abuse, or that it has no medical benefits.

The reason marijuana was originally made illegal was to curb the wave of immigrants that used it, and african americans. Then it was that it was going to cause people to be violent. Then it was that it made them to pacifists during the war (which is it, violence or pacifists?), then it was supposed to be harmful to the body with no medical benefits.

Really, show me some proof, please.

While I don't believe that marijuana possession should be illegal, it would depend upon what kind of people they were bringing into my neighborhood.

There are too many studies showing the addictive properties of Marijuana.

Here is a non biased article that discusses it somewhat. It's not a doctor, but quite frankly there are so many articles for and against by "professionals" that it's hard to tell what's what.

To many studies and you find an opinion piece from someone who isn't a doctor? Seriously?

If your neighbor was growing marijuana, what would you do?

Lock up the chips!

What this guy said. No violence. No cooking meth and running the risk of blowing up the neighborhood, or dealing of other hardcore substances, no problem. Stick with the pot, keep it clean, and it's cool.

There are too many studies showing both yes and no.

So i got an opinion of someone who has simply seen firsthand, other people's reactions to trying to quit. It's like giving up those cigerettes.

Sorry i though I put the part about too many studies show yes and no, so I went for the opinion of someone who had no medical opinion, and only a real world observation. That way it's unbiased.
