Despite my hippy days back in the '60s, I never touched weed or any drugs with the exception of alcohol. My son got himself in a very bad way as a result of the former when he was very young. It messed with his growing brain. He never really got over it, although he is clean now. He still has psychotic issues. Of course, it doesn't necessarily affect everyone in that way but its certainly not a good idea to be using it regularly. Whoever said weed wasn't addictive was wrong. Maybe dependency is the right word rather than addiction but at the end of the day it is bad news.
Weed has a lot to answer for, especially the young ones, one of my wife's friends son (18) late last year jumped off a bridge flyover, broke lots of bones and slowly recovering. He was smoking dope at 13 his mum told my wife. Brain not fully grown does so much damage, he's under specialist counciling . They aren't allowed to ask why? But they know it was the weed.
