Hi everyone, As the title states, marijuana is not addictive and here's why: I am 20 years old at present. I have been smoking weed since I was 13, but not regularly. I grew up in many different places but ethnically I am mixed Pakistani (dad) and Puerto Rican (mom). When I was 16, I moved to London, UK and started to smoke more and by the time I was 18, I smoked at least a gram every day, which was the most I could afford to spend on "dime bags" since I had no job and not enough money to buy weight, anyway I smoked every day for 2 years (2011-2013) and still smoke whenever I can. I absolutely love weed and I wish I could smoke it and stay high 24/7 until I die. In August 2013, I moved to the Middle East (specifically Dubai and Oman) because I got a good job here which pays more than I could ever make in the US or in Europe. Its boring here, the weather is shit and the laws are bullshit, the people are rude and arrogant and nobody knows English. The worst thing by far is the lack of human rights and freedoms, and also the fact that there is NO weed or hash in any form any where in this region. I hate this place so much but I get tax free money here so that's the only reason why I stayed and continue to stay (hopefully in May I will leave forever). Before I came here in August, I used to smoke high quality weed from Amsterdam (in London though) every day and I never want to quit, as I mentioned above. From August to October I had no weed at all. Finally, I couldn't take it anymore. I searched high and low for some weed or hash or even hash oil, but there was none and even if there was, I can't speak Arabic so even if someone offered me some I wouldn't know what they were talking about. In Dubai, even a microscopic particle of weed or any "drug" will get you a mandatory 4 year jail sentence and the police rape and beat up prisoners here. So I didn't want to take any chances. I Googled "weed in Dubai" and stupid stuff like that in the hopes of finding some online. There was none. So I did what the website recommended, I went to Pakistan in October! The hash in Pakistan is dirt cheap and its the only hash that has ever gotten me high (I had Moroccan hash in Spain but it didn't do anything to me). I stayed there for two weeks (In Islamabad). Â£20 will get you an ounce there, I loved it! But I knew I had to get back to this Arabian shit hole called the UAE, so I made every second count. From October to December, I was in Oman/UAE and then I went back to London for Christmas/New Year and smoked every day again. It was great and I spend a LOT of money (Â£800) on just weed but it was well worth it. Now, from January to May, I am here and I am definitely considering visiting Pakistan again. So to conclude, weed isn't addictive; I never suffered any "withdrawal symptoms" but I love it so much that I want to smoke it all the time. That is not addiction, its love! Thanks for reading.
