Addiction
Addiction

There is increasing evidence that marijuana is addicting. Marijuana raises levels of dopamine in the brain (pleasure chemical).

When dopamine levels wear off (drops), often dramatically, the experience is know as a crash.

Even when users recognized that it was causing problems in their lives, they still continued using.

When heavy users stop using, they experience withdrawal symptoms.

  • 9 percent of users become addicted to marijuana;

  • this number increases among those who start young (to about 17 percent, or 1 in 6) and among daily users (to 25-50 percent).

  • Thus, many of the nearly 7 percent of high-school seniors who (according to annual survey data) report smoking marijuana daily or almost daily are well on their way to addiction, if not already addicted.
