Dagga addiction

In your oppinion, could this habit lead to her becoming more confrontational and angry and or emotional in the evenings. Her marriage has broken up, and she cannot see the connection between her husband wanting to leave her, and her addiction.

Dagga, rather like alcohol ( and its neither practical nor useful to try to separate their effects in someone taking both ) can easily be disinhibiting, so that someone would be less in control of their emotions and behaviour, less wise in making such behavioural decisions, and more irritable. Does she imagine that anyone would find her addictions attractive ?

Without disputing anything that the good doc has said, please note however that nobody gets addicted to weed. People get emotionally or otherwise dependent on it but addiction NO. Main reason being that when one stops taking this stuff (dont matter if they had been smoking everyday for 20 years) they never suffer any withdrawal symptoms.

Doctor is right regarding it changing behaviour patterns and so on though.
