Cannabis Addiction

Cannabis Addiction

Cannabis addiction is a disease that affects a person’s brain and behaviour and leads to an inability to control the intake of drug. When one becomes addicted they continue to intake the drug despite of the harm it causes. Cannabis addiction can start with experimental use of a recreational drug in social situations, and, for some people, the drug use becomes more frequent. The risk of addiction and how fast you become addicted depends on the frequency of cannabis intake.
