82. There's no scientific evidence marijuana is addictive.
Let me rephrase that. There is scientific evidence that marijuana is not addictive.

It's been out there for decades.

Arguments otherwise is racist propaganda from the American war on drug.

"The next Month or two, do not use Weed in any cases.. Not one single time.. And then came back to say that you are not been addict to the stuff.."

Considering I've been using marijuana off and on for forty years, going months or years without it with no ill effect, I can honestly say I'm not addicted to the substance. Of course, that's only anecdotal evidence. If you've got any example of, say, marijuana users experiencing any withdrawal symptoms from ceasation of marijuana use, please let me know about it.

"n 99.99 you would have had a break many times before the 2 month time is up.. And one of the hallmark of misuse and addiction to a drug, are that you are using it day, by day, by day every week, every month, and every year around..."

The facts are, kid, about 30% or so of the general population has used marijuana in their lifetimes, usually in their youth. And most gave it up with no ill effect. The others are perfectly capable of giving it up with no effect, but choose not too. It is not like, say, nicotine or caffeine, both of which are addictive and cause negative side effects upon withdrawal.

"Even that I can not "PROVE" TO YOU why Weed should be continuity to be made illegal"

I don't want you to prove to me that marijuana should be illegal. I want you to come up with one good reason why it should be illegal.
