"Yes" you can get addicted and "No", not everyone is doing it.

Fact: In a national school survey only about 15% of 8th graders, 32% of 10th graders, and 42% of 12th graders reported having used marijuana in their lifetime.

Fact: Marijuana can be very addictive and can lead to compulsive use.
Some individuals who are addicted abuse the drug even though it often interferes with family, school, work, and recreational activities.
Marijuana can also produce "withdrawal" symptoms when trying to quit, such as difficulty sleeping and anxiety.
