#10- OP could be a girl, but you have a point. It's sad to see what we are coming too as humans... Choosing crap over our children...

Um... You should never tell an adict to choose between their addiction and something else. Clearly at that point in time they'll choose the addiction (however much it sucks that they do). FYL =/

There's no proof that weed kills braincells, I've received my BA and am working on my MA. All while using weed. You cannot be addicted to weed.

While it is true that you aren't addicted to the actual chemical THC in marijuana, you can become "addicted" to the effects it creates. Here's a really crappy example: you don't become addicted to being held at gunpoint by muggers, but you can get addicted to the adrenaline rush, so to get your fix, you'll walk around seedy parts of town with money hanging out your ass to get that rush again.

85- that's some shitty logic. I got my phd all while drinking alcohol, therefore alcohol is armfree! and it's called psychological depedency, chek it out, first class of psychology teaches it

The fact that someone would even give an ultimatum to their PARENT, who is probably paying all the bills as it is, is one of the dumbest things someone could do. Giving ultimatums is the fastest way out of someones life.

Addiction isn't a clinical term (yet) but by most lay definitions it means repeating a behavior in spite of consequences to physical well being, social roles, emotional development, legal ramifications, etc. And yes, this defines some pot users.

182 Weed is illegal. Either he/she could make the demands or have the police do it for them.

And before all you pot-heads jump on me about that, the kid could be living with their mom for a reason eg. Paying for college on their own. Therefore it wouldn't be unreasonable for the child to ask her to stop. Her not stopping shows that she is addicted, as she chose it over he own child. Giving her an ultimatum was more of a last resort it would seem.

Yes weed can be addicting.. My friend relies on it to be happy. Of weed isn't addicting tell all these stoners to stop smoking it, guaranteed it will be reallllly hard for them. Mind you like the guy said above, it's not necessarily addicting itself.

Lets go over a hypothetical scenario. I like ice cream. I am not addicted to ice cream. If someone told me to stop eating ice cream or they would leave my life I would tell them to fuck off. That doesn't mean I am addicted to ice cream it's just that I'm not going to let someone else (especially my own child) give me an ultimatum on something that I enjoy. I'm just really stubborn and wouldn't let another person think they can control me like that.

I can guarantee just about every stoner HAS stopped for a large period of their life. Wether it be to get a job or because they could no longer afford to. I smoked weed every day for a semester in college, and didn't at all for the next five. Sure I missed having fun, but I wasn't in withdrawl, and that's because weed is not addicting.

Getting error message on my phone...sending in 2 parts. 1 - Wow kids these days. Weed is illegal. So is jaywalking. I'm sure we've all jaywalked before. Alcohol was illegal in the US for a few years, and now it's not. Cigarettes are very bad for you, yet they've always been legal. So the "legality" of certain actions has nothing to do with their morality.

Reply
  Marcella1016  |  26

2 - Now that the self-righteous little kids with no life experience have been put in their place... We don't know the full story of the mom. Is she a low-life with no job who sits up and smokes weed all day that she trades for food stamps since she has no job/no money? Or does she work 2 or 3 jobs and smoke weed to wind down and her whiny brat of an adult or older teenage kid just doesn't like the smell and decided to tell her how to live her life?

Reply
  Marcella1016  |  26

3 - IMHO we can't make a sound assessment about the situation without more details. But for me, I decline to judge either the OP or his mother. Who knows he could be a 20-something year old just living under her roof mooching off of her. Or she could be a low-life douche. The world may never know.

If a parent chooses to go buy and smoke weed, meth, or any other drug instead of taking care of their child especially a young one who needs special attention (just one example) then they have a addiction or at least a serious mess up in priorities and NEEDS help. Addiction means anything that has control over you and in my experience with my mom, friends aunt, and few other friends and their drug problem (weed, meth, etc); it was a addiction, it did run their lives, and had complete control over them.

Maybe it's better for you to be out of that environment anyways. But if that doesn't work. Loud music and locked doors help.

Just because she has an addiction does not mean she is a horrible person. Her addiction is what is causing her to act in such a way. She may be a very good person and mother if she were sober.

Why are all these people getting thumbed down? I don't smoke weed, but it's a plant. And that's all, a plant. Like tobacco. But nobody runs around claiming tobacco is a drug, even though it's much, much worse for your health.

Jesus Christ. Do you guys even know what a drug is? Nicotine (in cigarettes) is a drug, caffeine (in coffee) is a drug, thc (in cannabis) is a drug. just because something is natural doesn't mean it can't be a drug. You can actually get addicted to caffeine. You can go through withdrawals if you stop drinking it. Drugs are all around us but most are legal. Thats not to say that drugs are bad either. Have you all never attended health class in high school?

I'm just trying to say that weed shouldn't be considered a drug. I mean who made it a drug? the government. cherry pie is addictive to some people, so if the government started calling cherry pies a drug would you stop eating cherry pies? probably not. and I realize I probably sound like a hippie dumb ass right now, so I'm sorry.

Like #64 said, anything can be addictive, even things that are good for you. I've seen a couple shows on people who are addicted to exercise which led them to doing it to the point where it was physically damaging their bodies and yet they still wouldn't stop.

To those who said its not physically addictive ur close it is physically addictive its not chemically addictive the difference is tobacco and heroine are chemically addictive exercise is physically addictive

Hopefully the OP did. Lesson learned: never make an ultimatum unless you're prepared for all possible outcomes. On the bright side at your next place no one will be eating your munchies.

Agreed with #95. OP made several mistakes: setting rules in a home he didn't own, giving an ultimatum, and threatening an addict. All you can do now, OP, is move on. It's for your own health and sanity.

Some people can't even eat or sleep without it. You can get addicted to ANYTHING ie; shopping, food, ect. It's mentally and physically addictive anything can be. It's more so mentally. So therefore your comment is void.

That may be true for you but it's not a fact. Weed can be very mentally addictive. If you stop you won't get withdrawal symptoms. But addiction's withdrawal symptoms can last for days; mental addiction is for life. Ask a 10-year sober alcoholic which is harder: the detox or stopping himself from drinking every day. All the people I know that are addicted to weed say they can stop just like the alcoholics, cigarette smokers, etc. None of them do. They just sit in the same place smoking their lives away.

Really 137? Sounds like op isn't just a kid. And to piss off somebody who's high on weed enough to get kicked you're a dumbass lol. As for weed not being addicting. Yes it is, you just don't get a chemical dependency on it. You won't have withdrawal symptoms. That's why they say it's not addicting.

Reply

That's because it's the opposite of what nine said, mentally addictive not physically. Mental addictives are just as hard to get off but once you do there's no withdrawal. Weed users always say they can stop whenever they want so how bout you do then, just stop for a month, or even a week, see if you can.

I love my pot, but it IS addictive, no argument; it definitely stimulates the "reward-reinforcement" neural pathway, though less strongly than the hard drugs. Knowledge bomb!!!!

Reply
  SammyS2012  |  21

As I already said, if the only way to not be stressed or to be happy is by using weed, then yea, it is an addiction. By relying on the endorphins caused by your high, you will in fact eventually prohibit your own body to create its own NATURAL endorphins; which in the long run, links marijuana and depression.

Anything is mentally addictive. Food is an example. But it doesn't mean you should pass judgment on to people who do it. It also means you shouldn't assume that all people who smoke are addicted to it, just like how not all people who drink are alcoholics. Frankly I think quite a bit of you should be more open-minded, because there are some people in the world who are actually smart and collected and also smoke pot.

Weed is great! I understand why a lot of people don't like it but that's down to them! You NEVER hear of someone smoking a joint then starting fights with numerous individuals over petty things; Alcohol does that instead yet people still drink until ridiculous hours of the morning and a lot of them end up being arrested! I can honestly say it makes NO sense to me...

JadeWalker, it's people like you that make our future look bad. I hope you realize that. Weed is not a way to cope. It's an illegal drug. It's illegal for a reason. It causes severe damage to the body. There is something wrong when a woman abandons her offspring, not child, not adult, OFFSPRING, for what appears to be an addiction. We clear? Kay. Cool.

Weed is illigal because in the 1910s paper manufacturers didn't want the compition of hemp. Weed is accually less harmful than alcohol or tobacco and less addictive

Reply
  newlove_fml  |  0

Okay, that's besides the point. Yes. Weed has its ups and it's downs. Personally, I think the downs outweigh the good. Some disagree. But the real problem is that the mother abandoned her offspring for weed. That's not right. It doesn't matter if OP was a bad kid or not, the mom didn't kick him out for that. She kicked him out for a drug.
