This. Yes, greasy food or metal music can be habit forming....But I've found few other things (no, not even smartphones....usually) can so dominate a person's life. Far more than tobacco, and I might even say more than alcohol (though alcohol has worse other side effects). To paraphrase a professor from somewhere but I don't remember which or where, "pot smokers like to claim they become more creative and original when they smoke. Perhaps they do, at first. But I've seen far too many intelligent, creative people start smoking, and a while later, the only thing they use their intellect and creativity for, is to find the next place or way to light up".I've seen the all-consuming effect that it has on some people. I managed a restaurant for 10 years, waited tables in the same restaurant 5 years before that. I've seen a lot of college aged adults come in, start to discover the wonders of weed, & then lose all interest in all else. I had a kid come in, we called him Cartman because he was the physical embodiment of Eric Cartman, right down to the voice. When he started, he was active, he was an umpire for local youth baseball games. he would go out & do 5-6 games on a Saturday & several more during the week. He starts smoking weed, starts listening to Phish, and does fewer & fewer baseball games until he stops that completely & all he cares about is when he can blaze up next.
I've been that guy.Stoner Dude takes a hit & passes the joint to me
Me: no thanks I don't smoke
Stoner dude: (as he passes the joint to the guy next to me, giving me the stink-eye) Are you a cop?
Me: Nope, not a cop
SD: Cause you know... if I ask you... you have to tell me.
Me: Well asking me as you pass me the joint is a little late don't ya think?

In the time since i posted this i got into smoking, got to the point of daily usage, and waned back down to once a month at most.I had more edibles than I should've and it was maybe the worst experience of my life. Even the good parts of the high didn't feel as good as a nice drunk, so I just stick to alcohol.
