On the other hand, I've seen you smoke.  You smoke a rather large quantity, far more than what I'd call "casual use".  That doesn't imply "addiction", but it does raise a flag or two.
Oh, I don't smoke like that anymore!  I really didn't smoke like that for very long.  That little period sort of feels like it was my last hurrah with drugs and booze.  I still drink and smoke, but not like that.  I touch Jameson or Tullamure Dew maybe once or twice a year now.  A quarter lasts me up to two weeks, and I really don't have much to do with anything "hard" anymore.  I can't handle uppers at all anymore... two cups of coffee in a day is already a bit too much.

And they have DEVO II!

I lost a lot of respect for Devo when they initially endorsed this.

RWHN: Thanks for the links, but I'm still not convinced that it is anything beyond psychological; someone said Mountain Dew, and I agree.  I've often compared my "addiction" with my former addiction to coffee.  I still love coffee, and honestly, I miss drinking it the way I used to, but it started making me ill, so that made it easy to cut back drastically.  I think it's important to remember that marijuana does affect different people differently, such as the numerous reports I've been given from rl folks that it actually increases anxiety (the opposite effect from what it has on me).  I think, like many things, like coffee, marijuana can be helpful and worth consuming for many people, but there must be some sense of balance, and that threshold too, is different for every case.

Marijuana is an addictive substance- RWHN, MPP; Substance Abuse Services Specialist

Is there any biological basis for your assessment?
If there is any truth to this, I'm interested to examine the evidence myself, as I am not fully acquainted with your credentials.
