South Carolina Marijuana Addiction 

Marijuana is illegal in South Carolina. It is also the most available and most widely abused drug in South Carolina, and the number of users are growing. The rural parts of South Carolina, which provide adequate rain and humidity, provide an environment conducive to the growing cannabis. It is also dangerously misleading to believe that marijuana is safe just because it is legalized. Cannabis for recreational or medicinal use (or both) has become more normalized as more and more states legalize the drug.

But an unfortunate side effect of the growing acceptance of marijuana use is that it can make it harder for those struggling with marijuana addiction to recognize they need help. There is also a strong sentiment that cannabis is safe and not damaging to the body like alcohol or hard drugs.

Symptoms of Marijuana Withdrawal

There’s a continuing myth that marijuana isn’t addictive and that you can’t become dependent on it. This is simply not accurate. Several studies indicate that heavy marijuana users can become physically dependent on the drug and suffer withdrawal symptoms when they stop using it. Typically, when someone stops using pot, they report the following withdrawal symptoms:

  • Anxiety
  • Moodiness
  • Tension
  • Headaches
  • Loss of appetite
