isnt rationalization of use one of the indicators of being chemically dependant? because dude you sure sound like it... and 'thenew' is being honest....
Im not trying to rationalize anything. There has been times where I stopped smoking for months on end just to make sure I would pass a drug test and I felt great the entire time. When I stopped I didn't go through withdrawal, I wasn't up all night thinking about smoking and I sure as hell wasn't sick from not doing it.
All im saying is that if your going to rag on it at least get the facts right and don't lie to support your own moral values.
It's physically impossible to become dependent on weed. It doesn't change the chemical make up of your brain like alcohol, opiates, benzos, meth, crack, or cocaine does.
I'm betting that 95% of the people on here that are against it drink alcohol. If you drink every day or even every other day for one year you will become dependent on it and if you don't have it you will start shaking, get cold sweats, and have severe withdrawal symptoms and you could even die from not having it.
Pot doesn't do that. If you don't have it the worst that might happen is you lose a little weight because you don't have the munchies anymore.
In all honesty it's safer then any drug out there including alcohol. I know plenty of drunks that get violent or act like the world is about to end when they drink not to mention all the accidents and deaths it causes. Im willing to bet nobody here has ever heard of someone getting into an accident just because they smoked a bowl.
I just don't understand how people that never tried it can act like they know what it does to you. It's total bs.
He's describing a physical addiction which it's physically impossible to become dependent on pot. Now you might mentally want to get high but physically nothing will happen to you if you don't get high unlike alcohol, crack, heroin, vicodin, etc...
If he cant mentally control it then he has some serious issues that run deeper then wanting to burn a j and chances are he was using any other drug he could find if he couldn't get his hands on pot.
