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

    Nicotine is arguably a narcotic
    It is true that I have never met anyone addicted to Marihuana, there are a number of alcoholics that have been through the cleaning process a few times among my aquaintences and friends.

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.



    This reads like "reefer madness".

    What is the condition of "marijuana addiction"? what are the effects, and what is the withdrawal like? are they worse than say... Caffeine?


    9% who use it become dependent? is that addiction or "Dependence"?

    Mississippi

    In 2014, along with a slew of other traditionally conservative states, Mississippi passed a law allowing for the limited use of certain types of medical marijuana.
    Hardly a year ago and only limited and for certain types.

    So no. Mississipi is still the ass end in the Southernistan.

    Cool...

    But that's irrelevant to what I just said. I said it has the largest legal medical marijuana field in the US.

    field???

    What do you mean?

    A field can mean many things from an actual field to a scientific field.

    It's a scientific field, I'm pretty sure. They also have a giant lab too to study hydro weed at Ole Miss.

    First off.

    A state doesnt have a field of science. A field of science belongs to the entire global scientific community. Fakulties within universities or private research institutions own research departments in a field of science.

    Second.

    Which university or private research institution?

    I gave you links to sites. Would info from SAMSA help? Cannabis | SAMHSA Maybe the APA? Medicine or menace?

    Read them or dont. Are you just like itching for a fight or something? I mean...if so that would be really stupid considering I am not opposed to legalizing marijuana and have always said so.
