Is this just one of those random facts you heard somewhere or is there a real reason you think this?

You go into withdrawal without it. I've never seen anyone junkie out over some weed.

Because science has proven it.

Physically addictive means your body actually needs it. Withdrawals from not having it.

It's mentally addictive, but not physically.

There are a list of symptoms associated with withdrawal from drugs, and stopping marijuana doesn't produce those. These are things like shakes, seizures, hallucinations, etc. You can probably find a list online.

"science said" is not an answer though...what science said?


If the number one feeling a heavy smoker will feel after quitting is nausea,how is that not a symptom of withdrawal?

I believe it can be MENTALLY addictive to people who abuse it. I don't believe it is addictive in itself, but people can become addicted to it just like anything else. If that makes sense. It's not physically addictive because you don't go through physical withdrawls without it.

I don't. I know exactly what happens when I don't smoke.

Yeah...nausea, sweat, anxiety...all of those go along with a heavy smoker quitting

Yes you do...you just don't feel symptoms if you're a light smoker

People don't suck dick for marijuana and they will for a fix of harder drugs. Bob Saget summed it up nicely.

marijuana is nothing like heroin...but does that mean the symptoms almost every heavy smoker feels save for a few are non-existent because it could be worse?
