Posted By:

Do you often get "stoned", which is the act of smoking marijuana with friends? If yes, then did you know that there are certain signs that could mean you are addicted to marijuana?

Yes, contrary to the popular belief that marijuana is not an addictive drug, many research studies have found that smoking marijuana can lead to both psychological and physiological addiction!

Lately, smoking marijuana or weed has become rather popular, especially among the younger generations.

Many people feel that smoking marijuana is a healthier alternative to cigarette smoking, drinking alcohol and using hard drugs.

While the above fact may be true to a small extent, as marijuana does not contain chemicals, it is also true that it has substances in it that can induce an addiction in the users.
