    I believe that too. Addiction or dependency upon any drug, alcohol or other central nervous system stimulant, has contributed to the demise of many relationships and this would include, workaholism.

    Is it the "addiction or dependancy" you don't like or is it the usage you don't like?

    Pot was not even illegal in the 50's.

    It is the change in behavior that results from the usage, which then alters the dynamics of a drug-free relationship, that I think destroys the value of a friendship or love.

    You people are idiots. Much like the "it's not the gun it's the shooter" argument, it really is the imbiber rather than the substance that causes havoc.
