haha...I know what you mean. I've known a few who act like addic.ts with it, but it's more of a psychological or habitual addiction. They're the same type of people (addictive personalities) that would easily become physically addicted to alcohol, prescription meds, heroin etc. etc. So it's hard to say that those type of people would become addicted to pot quicker than they would alcohol, since they're just ultimately substituting the drug for something else (i.e. emotional stress, depression).

As to the article though, I think the only reason that more college prospects are admitting to pot use is because they've been advised that telling the truth up front will be much better than draft agents finding out later on down the road (as the article suggests).

I'm willing to bet that the number of prospects that have used pot has never really gone up or down, just no one was talking about it before.

obviously you have little to no experience with either and have bought fully into the government propoganda. i myself have had years of experience with both substances so i consider myself qualified to call on most of your observations. trust me, alchohal is way worse than marijuana on all levels. the only reason its legal and pot isn't comes down to ... and the government having to admit they've been blowing smoke up our asses all along.

lol talking of money, the British Government, well a number of MP's want the newly illegalised Methodrone made legal, and to be a controlled drug in clubs around the UK.

I very much doubt they'd get their wish, but I'm guessing a teenagers life is the least of their motives for doing this instead thinking of the money that is bound to pass through their pockets when they tax the stuff.
