In the past few years, citizens have been pushing for legalized marijuana use in Virginia. Despite the apparent "addictive" ingredients in marijuana many states are legalizing recreational and medical uses of the opiate plant. Many addiction specialists or therapists will still refer their patients to Virginia Marijuana Rehab and Treatment Centers despite their lack of effective solutions to drug use. Typically treatment methods for marijuana include the 12 steps of AA or talk therapy. Many specialists will tell people they are addicted and cannot move beyond their disease of addiction. This simply is not true. At this time no legislator is trying to pass a law or take charge of the Marijuana Policy Project which would legalize the use of Medical Marijuana in Virginia.
For many Marijuana addiction seems like an impossible substance to overcome because of how heavy their Marijuana use might seem. The truth is that, people do make the choice to stop using Marijuana every day, with or without treatment.
