Geogypsy: That would explain the enthusiasm, I guess. I would posit that certain people seem to be far more inclined to become addicts - physically or psychologically - than others. I seem to be in the "other" category and am quite happy to leave it that way.

@Geogypsy: BULLSH*T! I smoked weed every day from 1989 to 2002. EVERY DAY! Then I just stopped... no problem. Tried it a few times in the last 10 years and was all: "Oh yeah, this is what it was like... meh"

Carmium, in long-term, habitual users, marijuana is most definitely addictive. It is purported not to be physically addictive but if you've ever lived with someone trying to recover from it, you may as well book a holiday in purgatory, it would be more relaxing. The person I observed experienced symptoms so acute that he simply couldn`t see his goal through. (And a selfish part of me was grateful for this.)
It`s so sad when a person becomes so accustomed to an altered state that the natural state is perceived as an unwanted debilitation.

DromEd/CodeJockey: I'm quite aware that there are many confirmed and alleged medical uses of marijuana, but nobody on this vid was under any delusion that they would change the world thru medical pot. The activists simply want to get legally high, as often as possible, and I should think that was obvious.

I was downtown Calgary today when a massive pro-marijuana march went down the main street. I'm not sure what was more awesome, the people dressed as weed, the chanting, the polite police onlookers, or the massive cloud of ganja-smoke that followed in their wake.
