    Is it some ScienceBlogs brotherhood that compels you to give Ted’s trolling a premier position on your blog? Just wondering, because it’s not as if the Daily Show is a forum of scientific discourse and Ted’s obsession with marijuana is, on the face of it, bizarre. Na ja es geht so…

    Sure, marijuana is addictive in the basic sense of addiction, in that pot use can become a bad habit. Like surfing the internet or watching porn. 😦

    But it is not addictive in the sense of inducing strong physiological dependency and agonizing withdrawal symptoms.

    BTW, my hat is off to those who have managed to stop smoking tobacco. 🙂
