While research has yet to definitely determine its medical benefits, for habitual users pot is statistically as addictive as alcohol. And it has its fair share of side effects.

Research suggests that approximately 10 percent of marijuana users become both chemically and psychologically dependent. Sustained use can actually result in the loss of IQ points, as well as mild to sever depression and permanent lung damage. Treatment is an important step for weed addiction, as this behavior can lead to co-occurring disorders while also greatly increasing the chance of developing other escalating addictions.
