    It is addictive in some cases, though the incidence of addiction is far lower than other drugs, such as heroin. Opioid receptors are receptors in the brain that both make us feel good and, when excited by opiates, create an addictive attraction. People also have canaboid receptors in the brain that operate the same way with marijuana.

    Problems with marijuana causing issues with memory, concentration and other brain functions are all temporary. These issues only last as long as you are high, then return.
    With prolonged use, brain function issues can become permanent.

    Not as much as you would think. The casino example illustrates the fallacy of the anecdotal story.

    Yes, it causes impairment. And that is the point, you are right. But impairment is not all a bad thing is my point. There are benefits to smoking and getting high. The altering of brain chemistry to give an altered mental state is not a negative thing. It is really disturbing how the puritanical thread in America denies that.
    Impairment being good or bad is dependent on the individual, the effects the impairment have on that individual, and the activity the individual is engaging in during the impairment.

    That's what I thought. No one.

    Just burned your strawman for ya there, bud. You're welcome.
    Actually, you are incorrect here, rivrrat. I've worked with plenty who did these things for just that reason.

    Yes, I am a stupid loser, but since I refuse to blame anybody but myself for my failings, I fail to see how this is anybody else's concern.

    I believe there may be a psychological addiction, if I am using the term correctly, to refer to the "habit" one can form smoking pot regularly. There seems to be no physical addiction.

    My anecdotal story is that I had stopped smoking repeatedly for periods of time (1 - 2 months) up to the last time I stopped 3 years ago. There were zero withdrawal symptoms that I noticed.

    With prolonged use, brain function issues can become permanent.
    What types of issues? The ones I listed?

    Certainly not going to call you a liar, but I've been around a LOT of drug users in my life, and never met one who used drugs to 'feel good about themselves'. That's about the most retarded thing I've ever heard.

    If drugs make you feel better about yourself then why not legalize them for depressives?

    Feel good about themselves is a blanket term for people who use drugs for self gratification or deal with their problems. And a lot of people do use drugs to deal with their problems.
