Some, not all.

Not everyone who drinks alcohol is an alcoholic.  Not everyone who uses drugs is an addict.  Some who drink or use drugs will have substance abuse problems.  Some will need help.

As the parent of a young addict, who primarily has a problem with pot, it’s been frustrating to hear comments that “it’s just weed.”  For some, not all, that may be true.  For my son, it’s not.  It has undeniably caused pain and destruction in his life and by default in ours. 

While we are doing all we can to move forward, our son lingers in denial and devastation.

Earlier today, I read another story about Lady Gaga and marijauna use.  http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-204_162-57612036/lady-gaga-says-she-was-addicted-to-marijuana-is-pot-addictive/ 

There are some excellent insights in here about addiction to marijuana.  I welcome your thoughts.
