In brief: Yes

A teenager can become dependent on marijuana.
Drug dependence is the body's physical need, or addiction, to a particular substance, in order for the person to feel like he is functioning normally. Over time, drug dependence leads to physical harm in the user's brain and body, to behavior problems, and to association with people who also abuse drugs and commit crimes to obtain drugs.
