And for good reason: Although the drugs can definitely cause physical dependency, true addiction involves a mental and emotional element – it’s a symptom that the person has things going on in their life that they don’t know how to deal with. more…

And when you consider that only 67 of Colorado’s 321 jurisdictions opted in to allowing retail or medical sales of marijuana, that decreases the number even further. So … let’s just say that quite a few people in Colorado got stoned last year. more…
