Roger Dinhelm: Almost everything said here about drug addiction is wrong. Physical addiction was discovered in 18 century "thanks" to wars they had plenty of "patients". Kurtz seems tried to hop in legalize hype train. Or just plain paid for that.

Pizza Badger: This is very true because my friend smokes weed sometimes but she's not addicted because she lives a happy life
