    I normally drink 2 to 4 cups of coffee a day and have for many years. However, I can easily skip coffee with no symptoms at all. I have done it many times.

    Some people have addictive personalities that predisposed them to developing addictions. I have seen young people that have serious problems when they don't have access to gaming. My son-in-law spent most of his life going from one addiction to another, alcohol, tobacco, gambling, drugs coffee, overeating, etc. As soon as he kicked one he would develop another addiction. I know there are many drugs that are physically addictive with terrible consequences but some people can be mentally addicted to just about anything and symptoms can be as bad as physical addiction.

    Whenever someone goes down the Reefer Madness road they demonstrate naivete and backwards ignorance.
    You need to catch up by about 50 years.
    Most of the harmful effects of pot were not yet known back in the 1960's when we beta testers were using the phallacy of Reefer Madness as an excuse to dismiss pot critics of that time. Still very much like you backwards pot advocates of today.

    I have heard that PC game developers will start testing.

    If you come up negative for pot, they don't hire you!

    Is the problem with marijuana addiction or misplaced moral standards? Everything is dangerous if not used correctly and/or in moderation. There is such a thing as dying from drinking too much water. There are those who can't stop drinking water due to some sort of mental glitch, and can die if not closely monitored around the drinking fountain. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I take a lot of medicine, mostly for pain control. The meds are beginning to cause pain, and if a healthy person took the meds that I take by accident, they'd likely die. As another example, cancer drugs are lethal to everyone. Looked at with this perspective, addiction to marijuana doesn't sound too dangerous to me. If a couple of hash brownies a day mellowed me out, and took the pain down to a bearable level - I would ask for it. This has become a serious thought process for me. Legalizing it and gaining tax revenue will give marijuana the proper veneer of social acceptance. Not that I care about social acceptance; it's just easier not to be hassled for using it.

    I have never heard of anyone stoned on water. There is a condition called water intoxication caused by drinking huge,amounts of water and not urinating. That's not a usual response.

    Marijuana causes cognitive impairment and impedes judgment as well as causing heart attacks.
