Alcohol and Marijuana do not affect the pleasure receptors in the same way and are both low on the actual physical addiction scale

Is marijuana addictive? | National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)
That accompanies greater levels of potency "Marijuana potency as detected in confiscated samples, has steadily increased over the past few decades.2 In the early 1990s, the average THC content in confiscated cannabis samples was roughly 3.7 percent for marijuana and 7.5 percent for sinsemilla (a higher potency marijuana from specially tended female plants). In 2013, it was 9.6 percent for marijuana and 16 percent for sinsemilla.16 Also, newly popular methods of smoking or eating THC-rich hash oil extracted from the marijuana plant (a practice called “dabbing”) may deliver very high levels of THC to the user. The average marijuana extract contains over 50 percent THC, with some samples exceeding 80 percent."
To say nothing of the things people are doing to chemically boost the 'high' by lacing marijuana with crack, pcp, formaldehyde (for the love of God), meth, bath salts, etc.
And you will note...I stated already there IS no detox protocol (nor need) for detox for marijuana addicts (provided they are not regularly using with other drugs). There IS treatment for marijuana addiction but that is usually a cog/behavioral treatment accompanied with some form of med treatment for depression and expected increases of anxiety.
