Yeah. Because I never made any claims. I frankly couldn't care less if the OP smokes himself retarded with six grams a day (jesus christ, if you aren't getting stoned off of one gram, you might want to re-evaluate which drug you're taking from an economic standpoint alone), and I never made any claims about marijuana dependency. I'm just pointing out, as others in this thread have, that going around saying "marijuana is completely non habit forming and chronic abuse of it isn't symptomatic of any psychiatric/personality problems at all!" is ass backwards stupid and fairly irresponsible. If people can manage to completely fuck their lives up with alcohol dependency, they can do it with marijuana as well.
I think you'll need a refund on that degree, everything's pretty much addictive whether prescribed or not. Marijuana is a very low level risk of addiction in comparison, also it's harm risk is just as low as it's addiction level. You're trying very hard to sound convincing that you know what you're talking about, and I respect the fact that you may or may not have a degree in such things.
I really don't, because nothing I said was remotely inaccurate.
But if you think Marijuana is a huge problem regarding addiction, you've obviously haven't seen the pill addicts that get prescribed their own poison.
I don't, and the chemical dependency of other drug abusers doesn't help your point any. Again, alcohol is a good comparison here. People abusing opiates and barbiturates may develop a quicker physical dependency on the substance, but take a quick look at alcoholism rates in the United States and tell me you think that means alcohol isn't a high risk for substance abuse.
At least Marijuana is organic; grown from the ground, and not altered in a lab.
So is Arsenic, Nightshade, Opium, and psilocybin. All of which have potentially fatal effects!
Sounds to me like if you do have a degree, you've gotten ripped off pretty damn bad.
Now please, go push your "degree" elsewhere.
I wasn't pushing my education, I'm telling you that reading a poorly constructed drug database doesn't make you "educated". It makes you slightly more educated than the average popping CCC's in civics class.
