I've once met someone who argued that smoking doesn't cause cancer, it's the people that smoke
Starvation doesn't cause death in Africa, it's the people that starve!

From a lady's POV it's whenever a guy opens his mouth and words come out instead of gas or barf.

I usually forget them, but I do remember one where some kid became easily offended over something I said and had her cyber buddies try to gang up on me. That was a hilarious moment. I forgot what the topic was about unfortunately.

Actually, you can't become addicted to marijuana. It doesn't contain any physically addictive substances. It's a plant. You can become mentally addicted. But a person can become mentally addicted to anything. Caffeine, chocolate, porn, video games, marijuana. Going without can cause extreme mood swings, but that's the extent of a mental addiction.

You won't go through physical withdrawal with symptoms such as vomiting, fever, cold sweats, body pain, like you would from cocaine, heroine, or methamphetamine. So be careful when calling people stupid. Considering the fact that they were right and you were wrong, what does that make you?

HAHA. Dude, exactly why this is a dumb argument. I'll never agree w/ you, & you never w/ me. So don't even bother bro. Oh, & i also don't appreciate you calling me stupid. Just because i have a different opinion than you doesn't mean i am, just that i looked at it a different way.

Ugh.

Have you ever heard of neurotransmitter chemicals? Those are the chemicals in your brain which allow for the transmission of signals between neurons. Most "recreational" drugs, including marijuana, function by altering these chemical balances. It may not be AS chemically addictive as some drugs, but it most certainly can be. Anything that the body adapts to chemically can be addictive.

Oh, Cocaine comes from a plant.

Opium is extremely addictive and it comes from a plant (poppies).

Heroine and morphine are derivatives of opium which come from a plant.

TOBACCO is a plant and is highly addictive.

In fact, there are only two drugs I know of off of the top of my head which are completely man-made -- ecstasy and crystal methamphetamine.

So YES, substances which come from plants CAN be addictive. And these addictions are more than just habit, or as you wrongfully described "mentally addictive." Biting your fingernails is a habit, or as you put it a "mental addiction" but these addictions are actually caused by chemical changes in the brain and body.

Just because you want something to be true doesn't mean that it is. Welcome to real life. Stay in school.
