Is Marijuana Addictive?

There is a common misconception that marijuana is not actually addictive. Addiction to marijuana is real.

It is generally accepted that addiction to any substance is not caused by a single factor, but rather by a combination of genetic and environmental influences.

An increase in marijuana use can be triggered by a variety of factors: stress, mental health issues, problems at work, relationship difficulties, loss, and so on. The bottom line is if there are problems in your life – or your loved one’s life – due to the use of marijuana, now is the time to act.
