Chris is correct. Wanted to add though that i had smoked marijuana for 15 years straight there wasnt a day that went by that i didnt have a bag on me. After smoking all that time it was tough but you dont get withdraws like pills do to you. Once you do stop smoking after all that time though it takes about almost 3 months to get it out of your system. Tell your husband to grow up and quit the pot. Good luck to you and your husband. I am one year clean now and it feels awesome after being stuck to pot all that time it was taking over my life i couldnt go any where without having one on me.
I can only give you my personal experience and say that some people have more addictive tendencies than others. I used pot for at least five years daily every morning before work..two joints,,more at break time and all through the day till bedtime and really liked being stoned for just about any activity. When my man asked to move in with me, he said I would have to stop because it would not be right to smoke with his infant daughter in the house, so I agreed to stop and did. I stopped completely the day he moved in and only thought about it but never really felt like I had to have it. The more time that went by, the less I thought about it, and that was fifteen years ago. In the past year I have tried it again when I was alone and felt really paranoid. I have pain 24/7 and thought it might help but couldn't really say it did.
Your husband may have something else going on that he isn't aware of or you. He may have depression, anxiety, adhd etc. I recently went to the dr. and was honest about smoking marijuana and she suggested i had adhd, anxiety. PPL who often have a disorder of some type often have a substance abuse problem. just a thought for you... (btw i do have adhd and anxiety)
Technically speaking, No it is not. No physical addiction has ever been recorded even in users who have smoked marijuana for 20+ years multiple times a day.
A mental addiction however, is possible. Basically this means that he wants Marijuana, so his mind is telling his body he needs Marijuana rather than his body telling his mind... In reality there is no addiction.
Cocaine would be a physical addiction just to compare...
As long as he wants to quit, or decides to quit, it will be a piece of cake. No withdrawals except mentally.
I would research Marijuana thoroughly. There are many medical benefits (New research is showing). To this date as far as scientist can tell, the only things truly bad about Marijuana is the act of smoking it and of course failing drug tests which is the only real reason I could see for quitting. Marijuana itself isn't bad, but inhaling ash into the lungs is terrible whether it is Marijuana or green tea... If he were to consume, vaporize(which you still inhale, but only vapor, no ash), or you could brew Marijuana into a tea, he would be perfectly fine and somewhat healthier. One of the major breakthroughs in Marijuana research is the fact that the active component in Marijuana called THC is actually targeting and killing cancer cells, and preventing growth. It will not cure but it would help especially if undergoing radiation treatment. This could be one step closer to finding the cure for cancer.
I smoked heavily daily two joints before work and on throughout the day. One day I decided to stop to please my partner, and I was able to do so without physical withdrawal. I thought about it but moved on, so no, it is not addiction like pain pills etc. I know it wasn't in my case.
