This syndrome can be characterized by a few habitual traits in heavy marijuana users.


The first sign of “marijuana dependence” may be that the user abuses marijuana in inappropriate situations. They may feel sudden cravings or urges to experience the marijuana effect at all times, even if it leads to bad situations.


Some users feel the need to smoke their whole sack of weed in one sitting, every sitting. They feel like they can’t get high enough, so they smoke incredibly large amounts of herb.


Another symptom of the dependence syndrome is the increased tolerance to the effects of the substance.

In this small percentage of marijuana users, it has been documented that there are possible marijuana withdrawal symptoms that may be experienced as a result of its repetitive use, then sudden discontinued use.

These symptoms are generally minor a subside shortly after discontinued  use.
