    Pot prob'ly doesn't kill sperm as quickly nor as often as a teen aged boy does.
    I may be wrong.

    people most certainly can hit rock bottom on pot - just because something doesn't produce a chemical dependency doesn't mean it can't turn into psychological dependency.

    I have been pretty patient with your ignorance overall, but it is most definitely ignorance on display.
    And your post indicates to me that your knowledge of drugs is based of some crap you bastardized from a 12 step program. People smoke marijuana responsibly. Sometimes people decide they don't want to smoke responsibly anymore and quit. There is no need for them to hit rock bottom or engage in some destructive behavior first.

    some people smoke it responsibly, but not all do.

    you will find this to be true as you mature. your limited world view right now hasn't afforded you the opportunity to see it firsthand.

    You have yet to offer any knowledge or wisdom of any interest to me. I never said all people smoke it responsibly.

    Your point about what is necessary for someone to "recover" is nonsense.

    you implied it by brushing off the idea that anybody could use it recklessly.

    I never said it is necessary.

    but I do see how private charity works better in handling addiction then public charity we have today.

    Right. I'd say that some is probably a most. The people who smoke daily are around 5-10 percent of the smoking population I believe (check me on this if you'd like). There's no doubt some abuse it.

    It's pretty hard to do it "recklessly." Some people have problems controlling their impulse and smoke more than they should. But that is like somebody that spends too much time on BBs, discussing politics. Those people have impulse control issues and excessive marijuana use is a symptom of their problem not the cause.

    I don't know if I would call it reckless.

    I never said it is necessary.
    Yeah you did.

    mine are actually valid - a nanny state often prevents people from reaching rock bottom - which is needed to clean up from drugs. So legalizing drugs, while not enforcing personal responsibility is a bad combination.

    As RStringfield stated, there are a wide variety of addictions. Food, money, power, video games, sex, drugs, and authority, just to name a few.
