This is not the question you should be asking yourself if you are concerned about yourself or a loved one regarding marijuana use? This question is often a diversionary topic that can shift the conversation from the real issue.
The real issue is Does the Person Have a Problem with Marijuana? Think about it, people can be addicted to substances regardless of whether they are legal. Trying to deal with addiction by worrying about politics and legalities is a bad policy. Our laws about drugs actually distract our country from the real problem, which is addiction.
