My response came off wrong! I was just speaking about physical dependency. Anything can become a compulsion or an addiction. Hell my husband is a recovering gambling addict. I was just saying there isn’t any physical withdrawal symptoms with pot. Alcohol and other drugs cause withdrawal symptoms that can lead to death. I’ve watched my dad have grand mal seizures when he decided he could quit drinking on his own. My cousin died from opioid & benzo withdrawal. I guess I see pot as safer because it doesn’t do anything bad to me. I know that isn’t the case for everyone
