If you really want to know if you can get addicted to marijuana, the short answer is a resounding, “Yes”! Contrary to what people say about it, pot is more than just a plant or herb. It has 150 different elements, including a toxin called THC that goes into your blood and affects your brain. Anyone who uses it is putting themselves at risk for serious mental problems. You not only get extreme physical symptoms (shaking, headaches, etc), but you may also start forgetting things or have difficulty doing anything that requires mental effort. But why is it darn addictive?
Experts say two things make users depend on it. First that “high” feeling is something so relaxing and enjoyable that you start craving it. After half an hour you begin to feel like you’re being hypnotized (hence the popular term “dazed and confused”). Second, users can’t relax or feel normal without it. They begin to get irritable, shaky and begin to have trouble sleeping when they go through withdrawal. That’s when it’s not so “fun” anymore. So, the next time somebody asks you “Can you get addicted to marijuana?”, tell them these facts because its never worth it to lose your life over some “plant”.
