We get many questions about marijuana dependence at Archstone Recovery Center. We’re here to provide some answers. While marijuana is not as addictive as cocaine, meth, or heroin, many users take the drug compulsively—in ways that are almost impossible for them to control. If you have trouble controlling your cravings for marijuana, you may very well have a dependence on it.

Like most drugs, long term usage of marijuana leads to greater and greater tolerance, where the human body needs more and more marijuana in order to maintain the same highs. As a user takes more and more marijuana in order to compensate for their increasing tolerance, they begin to depend on their high. Many marijuana users report almost feeling addicted to the feeling of being high. Cannabis or marijuana dependence can cause withdrawal symptoms, depression, schizophrenia, and various other personality disorders. In some rare cases, heavy long term marijuana usage can cause strong addictions among pot users.
