Get real. In reality, cannabis is used to help end the truly addictive hold that other medications have on peoples' lives.
Dr. Laurence Badgley
General Practice
In brief: No
It is not physically addicting, and it is common for heavy users to suddenly stop and to have no withdrawal symptoms; even with high doses of hashish.
Of course the symptoms for which they use cannabis recurr. Some infrequent person develops a psychological "dependency", but so do many people develop a psychological dependency to food.
